MTM1 Antibody (C-term)

Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - MTM1 Antibody (C-term) AP6809b
    All lanes : Anti-hMTM1-K581 at 1:2000 dilution Lane 1: Hela whole cell lysate Lane 2: HL-60 whole cell lysate Lysates/proteins at 20 µg per lane. Secondary Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG, (H+L), Peroxidase conjugated at 1/10000 dilution. Predicted band size : 70 kDa Blocking/Dilution buffer: 5% NFDM/TBST.
  • WB - MTM1 Antibody (C-term) AP6809b
    Western blot showing knockdown of endogenous MTM1 expression by MTM1-targeting vectors pDM134 and pDM170. Embryonic stem (ES) cells were untreated (lane 1) or transfected with control plasmid pDCont (lane 2), MTM1-targeting plasmid pDM134 (lane 3), or pDM170 (lane 4). The blot was probed with anti-MTM1 rabbit polyclonal antibodies. -Actin was used as a loading control.

Protein Information
Name MTM1
Synonyms CG2
Function Lipid phosphatase which dephosphorylates phosphatidylinositol 3-monophosphate (PI3P) and phosphatidylinositol 3,5-bisphosphate (PI(3,5)P2) (PubMed:11001925, PubMed:10900271, PubMed:12646134, PubMed:14722070). Has also been shown to dephosphorylate phosphotyrosine- and phosphoserine-containing peptides (PubMed:9537414). Negatively regulates EGFR degradation through regulation of EGFR trafficking from the late endosome to the lysosome (PubMed:14722070). Plays a role in vacuolar formation and morphology. Regulates desmin intermediate filament assembly and architecture (PubMed:21135508). Plays a role in mitochondrial morphology and positioning (PubMed:21135508). Required for skeletal muscle maintenance but not for myogenesis (PubMed:21135508). In skeletal muscles, stabilizes MTMR12 protein levels (PubMed:23818870).
Cellular Location Cytoplasm. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Cell projection, filopodium. Cell projection, ruffle. Late endosome. Cytoplasm, myofibril, sarcomere {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9Z2C5}. Note=Localizes as a dense cytoplasmic network (PubMed:11001925). Also localizes to the plasma membrane, including plasma membrane extensions such as filopodia and ruffles (PubMed:12118066). Predominantly located in the cytoplasm following interaction with MTMR12 (PubMed:12847286) Recruited to the late endosome following EGF stimulation (PubMed:14722070). In skeletal muscles, co-localizes with MTMR12 in the sarcomere (By similarity). {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9Z2C5, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11001925, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12118066, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12847286, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14722070}

MTM1 is a member of a protein family that encodes tyrosine phosphatases. Myotubularin is required for muscle cell differentiation and mutations in MTM1 have been identified as being responsible for X-linked myotubular myopathy. MTM1 is a potent phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate phosphatase (PI(3)P). Mutations in the MTM1 gene that cause human myotubular myopathy dramatically reduce the ability of the phosphatase to dephosphorylate PI(3)P. The findings provided evidence that myotubularin exerts its effects during myogenesis by regulating the cellular levels of the inositol lipid PI(3)P.
