|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_001070737, 7456, 215280 (mouse), 117538 (rat)|
|Predicted||Mouse, Rat, Dog|
|Calculated MW||51258 Da|
|Other Names||WAS/WASL-interacting protein family member 1, Protein PRPL-2, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein-interacting protein, WASP-interacting protein, WIPF1, WASPIP, WIP|
|Format||0.5 mg IgG/ml in Tris saline (20mM Tris pH7.3, 150mM NaCl), 0.02% sodium azide, with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-WIPF1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Plays a role in the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton. Contributes with NCK1 and GRB2 in the recruitment and activation of WASL. May participate in regulating the subcellular localization of WASL, resulting in the disassembly of stress fibers in favor of filopodia formation. Plays a role in the formation of cell ruffles (By similarity). Plays an important role in the intracellular motility of vaccinia virus by functioning as an adapter for recruiting WASL to vaccinia virus.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasmic vesicle. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cell projection, ruffle. Note=Vesicle surfaces and along actin tails. Colocalizes with actin stress fibers. When coexpressed with WASL, no longer associated with actin filaments but accumulated in perinuclear and cortical areas like WASL (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in peripheral blood mononuclear cells, spleen, placenta, small intestine, colon and thymus. Lower expression in ovary, heart, brain, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney, pancreas, prostate and testis|

This gene encodes a protein that plays an important role in the organization of the actin cytoskeleton. The encoded protein binds to a region of Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein that is frequently mutated in Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, an X-linked recessive disorder. Impairment of the interaction between these two proteins may contribute to the disease. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been identified for this gene.
