Technical Data
Adaptin, alpha (AP-2 Complex Subunit alpha-1, 100kD Coated Vesicle Protein A, Adapter-related Protein Complex 2 alpha-1 Subunit, Adaptor Protein Complex AP-2 Subunit alpha-1, Alpha-adaptin A, Alpha1-adaptin, Clathrin Assembly Protein Complex 2 alpha-A Lar
Alpha Adaptin, also known as adaptor related protein complex, alpha 1 subunit. The alpha adaptins are exclusively found in the endocytic coated vesicles. Huntingtin-interacting protein 1 (HIP1) is enriched in membrane-containing cell fractions and has been implicated in vesicle trafficking. Waelter et al. (2001) identified 3 HIP1-associated proteins, clathrin heavy chain (CLTC) and alpha-adaptin A and C. Coat proteins of approximately 100kD (adaptins) are components of the adaptor complexes which link clathrin to receptors in coated vesicles. The alpha-adaptins separate into two bands on SDS gels.

Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
