Technical Data
Caveolin 1 (CAV1, caveolae protein, 22kD , HGNC:1527, CAV, MSTP085, VIP21, caveolin 1, alpha isoform, caveolin 1, beta isoform, cell growth-inhibiting protein 32)
Caveolins make up a family of proteins that are principal structural components of hairpin-like domains in the plasma membrane (1). It is believed that caveolins serve as scaffolding proteins for the integration of signal transduction. Three members of caveolins (caveolin-1, -2 and -3) have been identified, possessing different tissue distributions (2). Caveolins interact with multiple signaling molecules, such as the G-protein alpha subunit (1), tyrosine kinase receptors, PKCs, Src family tyrosine kinases and eNOS (2,3). Caveolin-1 has been implicated in the pathogenesis of mammary epithelial cell hyperplasia (4).

Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunohistochemistry, Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:20,000
Immunohistochemistry: 1:250. Antigen retrieval required.
Immunocytochemistry: 1:100

Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. 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.
