Please refer to the product datasheet for known applications of a given antibody. We\'ve tested the FIG4/SAC3 Antibody: ATTO 633 with the following immunoassay(s):
Western Blot (WB) (Western Blot analysis of Mouse Brain Membrane showing detection of ~100 kDa FIG4/SAC3 protein using Mouse Anti-FIG4/SAC3 Monoclonal Antibody, Clone S202-7. Lane 1: Molecular Weight Ladder. Lane 2: Mouse Brain Membrane. Load: 15 ug. Block: 2% BSA and 2% Skim Milk in 1X TBST. Primary Antibody: Mouse Anti-FIG4/SAC3 Monoclonal Antibody at 1:200 for 16 hours at 4 degree C. Secondary Antibody: Goat Anti-Mouse IgG: HRP at 1:1000 for 1 hour RT. Color Development: ECL solution for 6 min in RT. Predicted/Observed Size: ~100 kDa.)
Background Info: Detects a 100 kDa protein.
Scientific Background: Fig4/Sac3 phosphatase, a 97-kDa protein, specifically removes the 5-phosphate from the inositol ring of PI(3,5)P2, a membrane-bound phospholipid, which acts as a molecular signal for trafficking and fusion of intracellular vesicles. It is broadly expressed in all eukaryotic cells and plays a vital role in intracellular membrane trafficking and signaling. Mutations in Fig4/Sac3 have been linked to pale tremor mice that exhibit neuropathy with severe central and peripheral neuronal degeneration, including the loss of neurons in the dorsal root ganglion and the sciatic nerve. Fig4/Sac3 knockout mice have been shown to be smaller in size and exhibit abnormal tremor and gait and neuronal autophagy.
Conjugate: ATTO 633. Storage Buffer: PBS pH 7.4, 50% glycerol, 0.1% sodium azide. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing Fig4 are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as Fig4 may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results.
