AFAP (actin filament associated protein 1, actin filament associated protein, AFAP, AFAP-110, FLJ56849)
Description:
AFAP (actin filament associated protein; also known as AFAP-110) is an adaptor protein that regulates actin filament integrity. It is both multimodular and multimeric, and is known to simultaneously bind actin and cytosolic kinases. As a homomultimer, AFAP binds and separates actin filaments, preventing actin cross-linking. Upon binding to kinases, AFAP is destabilized, promoting actin polymerization. Human AFAP is 730aa in length, and contains SH3 and SH2 binding motifs (aa69-74 and aa91-96), two pleckstrin homology domains (aa153-248 and
aa347-450) and a Leu-zipper/actin binding region (aa511-637). Over aa450-730, human AFAP is 86% identical to mouse and rat AFAP.

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

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at 4C for short-term only. Reconstitute to nominal volume by adding sterile 40-50% glycerol and store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 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.
