MA1-062 detects recombinant human and mouse cytohesin-1 and 2 (ARNO).
MA1-062 has been successfully used in Western blot, IF and immunoprecipitation procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~48 kDa band representing both cytohesin-1 and cytohesin-2. In immunoprecipitation procedures MA1-062 only precipitates cytohesin-2.
The MA1-062 immunogen is purified, His-tagged cytohesin-1.
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the PSCD family. Members of this family have identical structural organization that consists of an N-terminal coiled-coil motif, a central Sec7 domain, and a C-terminal pleckstrin homology (PH) domain. The coiled-coil motif is involved in homodimerization, the Sec7 domain contains guanine-nucleotide exchange protein (GEP) activity, and the PH domain interacts with phospholipids and is responsible for association of PSCDs with membranes. Members of this family appear to mediate the regulation of protein sorting and membrane trafficking. This gene is highly expressed in natural killer and peripheral T cells, and regulates the adhesiveness of integrins at the plasma membrane of lymphocytes. The encoded protein is 83% homologous to that of CYTH2.
