Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Applications Key: W=Western Blotting, IP=Immunoprecipitation
Specificity / Sensitivity
OCRL1 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total OCRL1 protein. This antibody also cross-reacts with a 51 KDa protein of unknown origin in some cell lines.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Gly88 of human OCRL1 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
OCRL1 is an inositol 5-phosphatase that selectively dephosphorylates the 5 position of the inositol ring. Its substrates include phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate, inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate, and inositol 1,3,4,5-tetrakisphosphate (1). Research studies indicate that mutations in OCRL1 are linked to Oculocerebrorenal syndrome or Lowe syndrome, an X-linked disorder distinguished by mental retardation and congenital cataracts, as well as Dent's disease (2,3). OCRL1 interacts with several endocytic proteins, including clathrin, AP-2, and RabGTPases (4-7). OCRL1 is localized to the Golgi complex, endosomes, and late stage clathrin-coated pits (6,8). OCRL1 controls early endosome function (8), regulating membrane traffic from endosomes to the Golgi. It is also involved in cytokinesis (9) and cilia assembly (10).
