This antibody is predicted to react with mouse and rat based on sequence homology.
SQSTM1/p62 is an adapter protein which binds ubiquitin and may regulate the activation of NFKB1 by TNF-alpha, nerve growth factor (NGF) and interleukin-1. This protein may play a role in titin/TTN downstream signaling in muscle cells, and may also regulate signaling cascades through ubiquitination. This protein is involved in cell differentiation, apoptosis, immune response and regulation of K(+) channels. SQSTM1/p62 also appears to play a role in macroautophagic removal of intracellular protein aggregates. Cellular depletion studies of SQSTM1/p62 have indicated a role for association with LC3 and aggregate proteins in order to facilitate normal formation of the autophagosome.
