|Application ||WB, IHC, FC, ICC, E|
|Description||Dynactin 4 could have a dual role in dynein targeting and in ACTR1A/Arp1 subunit of dynactin pointed-end capping. Could be involved in ACTR1A pointed-end binding and in additional roles in linking dynein and dynactin to the cortical cytoskeleton.The dynactin complex binds cargo, such as vesicles and organelles, to cytoplasmic dynein for retrograde microtubule-mediated trafficking and could feasibly be involved in the copper-regulated trafficking of ATP7B.|
|Immunogen||Purified recombinant fragment of human DCTN4 (AA: 57-298) expressed in E. Coli.|
|Formulation||Ascitic fluid containing 0.03% sodium azide.|
|Other Names||Dynactin subunit 4, Dyn4, Dynactin subunit p62, DCTN4|
WB~~1/500 - 1/2000
IF~~1/200 - 1/1000
FC~~1/200 - 1/400
IHC~~1/200 - 1/1000
|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||DCTN4 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Could have a dual role in dynein targeting and in ACTR1A/Arp1 subunit of dynactin pointed-end capping. Could be involved in ACTR1A pointed-end binding and in additional roles in linking dynein and dynactin to the cortical cytoskeleton.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Note=In skeletal muscles, demonstrates a punctate distribution along costameres (By similarity). Has a punctate cytoplasmic distribution as well as centrosomal distribution typical of dynactin. Overexpression does not disrupt microtubule organization or the integrity of the Golgi but does cause both cytosolic and nuclear distribution, suggesting that this polypeptide may be targeted to the nucleus at very high expression levels.|
