MA1-065 detects clathrin heavy chain in non-human primate, bovine, human, rat and mouse tissues as well as hamster (CHO) cells.
MA1-065 has been successfully used in Western blot, immunofluorescence, immunocytochemistry, and immunoprecipitation procedures. By Western blot, this antibody recognizes a single ~180 kDa protein representing the clathrin heavy chain from bovine brain extract. Immunoprecipitation of triskelions with MA1-065 allows both the clathrin heavy chain and the associated light chain polypeptides to be examined.
The MA1-065 immunogen is purified human brain clathrin heavy chain. Electron microscopy and proteolysis mapping demonstrate that MA1-065 binding occurs towards the central hub of the triskelion, N-terminal to the light chain binding regions.
Clathrin is the major protein of the polyhedral coat of coated pits and vesicles. Two different adapter protein complexes link the clathrin lattice either to the plasma membrane or to the trans-Golgi network.
