ALS2 (Alsin, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Protein 2, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 2 Chromosomal Region Candidate Gene 6 Protein, KIAA1563, ALS2CR6)
Description:
ALS2 contains an ATS1/RCC1-like domain, a RhoGEF domain, and a vacuolar protein sorting 9 (VPS9) domain, all of which are guanine-nucleotide exchange factors that activate members of the Ras superfamily of GTPases. The protein functions as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor for the small GTPase RAB5. The protein localizes with RAB5 on early endosomal compartments, and functions as a modulator for endosomal dynamics. Mutations in its gene result in several forms of juvenile lateral sclerosis and infantile-onset ascending spastic paralysis.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry (paraffin): 3-5ug/ml
