ADP Ribosylation Factor (ARF)
Description:
The ADP-ribosylation factor (Arf) family comprises a group of structurally and functionally conserved 21kD proteins, which are members of the Ras superfamily of regulatory GTP-binding proteins. Arf is involved in intracellular protein traffic to and within the Golgi complex. Arf has a number of disparate activities including maintenance of organelle integrity, assembly of coat proteins, as a co-factor for cholera toxin and as an activator of phospholipase D. The Arf family is divided functionally into the Arf and the Arf-like (Arl) proteins. Arfs share more than 60% sequence identity, appear to be ubiquitous in eukaryotes, and are highly conserved evolutionarily.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Immunoprecipitation, Immunocytochemistry and Western Blot. Cannot be used to neutralize Arf in solution. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunofluorescence: 1:500. Staining of Arf in rat pancreas results in staining of the cytoplasmic face of the trans-Golgi membranes.
Western Blot: 1:500. Detects a single ~21kD protein representing Arf in rat pancreas extract
Immunoprecipitation: 1:50
Optimal dilutions to be determiend by the researcher.

Cellular Localization: Golgi apparatus

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile 40-50% glycerol, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
