The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 55 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 55 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
功能Filament-forming cytoskeletal GTPase (By similarity). May play a role in cytokinesis (Potential). May play a role in platelet secretion. Isoform ARTS, but not the other isoforms, is required for the induction of cell death mediated by TGF-beta and by other apoptotic stimuli.
组织特异性Widely expressed in adult and fetal tissues with highest expression in adult brain (at protein level), heart, liver and adrenal gland and fetal heart, kidney, liver and lung. Also expressed in colorectal cancers and malignant melanomas. Expressed in platelets.
序列相似性Belongs to the septin family.
细胞定位Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. In platelets, found in areas surrounding alpha-granules and Mitochondrion. Nucleus. While predominantly localized in the mitochondria under resting conditions, isoform ARTS translocates into the nucleus after TGF-beta treatment and apoptosis induction.
