CLIP1/CLIP170 Antibody #8977
|W||H M Mk||Endogenous||170||Rabbit|
Reactivity Key: H=Human M=Mouse Mk=Monkey
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
CLIP1/CLIP170 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total CLIP1/CLIP170 protein.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the carboxy terminus of human CLIP1/CLIP170 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Microtubules (MTs) are polarized filaments composed of α/β tubulin heterodimers. The slower growing (minus) ends of MTs are located at centrosomes, and the faster growing (plus) ends extend into the cell periphery. Regulation of MT dynamics is important for multiple cellular functions, including cell division, migration, adhesion, membrane trafficking, and polarity (reviewed in 1).Cytoplasmic linker protein 1/170 (CLIP1/CLIP170) localizes to the plus ends of MTs (2), and binds to the Rac1/cdc42 effector protein IQGAP1. This complex is involved in establishing cell polarity (3).CLIP1/CLIP170 also facilitates MT-dependent organelle transport (4), and phosphorylation of CLIP1/CLIP170 by PLK1 and CK2 is required for efficient microtubule–kinetochore attachments in mitosis (5).
