Immunofluorescent analysis of HeLa cells using a Tuberin polyclonal antibody (Product # PA5-13364). HeLa cells were fixed with 4% PFA (20 min), permeabilized with Triton X-100 (0.1%, 10 min), then incubated with a Tuberin polyclonal antibody (Product # PA5-13364) (1:25, 1 hr at 37°C). Primary antibody was detected with fluor-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit secondary antibody (green) at 1:400 dilution for 50 min at 37°C). Actin filaments have been labeled with dye-conjugated phalloidin (red). Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue) (10 ug/ml, 10 min).

Mutations in TSC2 lead to tuberous sclerosis complex. This protein is believed to be a tumor suppressor and is able to specifically stimulate the intrinsic GTPase activity of the Ras-related protein RAP1A and RAB5. TSC2 associates with hamartin in a cytosolic complex, possibly acting as a chaperone for hamartin. It may have a function in vesicular transport, but may also play a role in the regulation of cell growth arrest and in the regulation of transcription mediated by steroid receptors. Interaction between TSC1 and TSC2 may facilitate vesicular docking.
