Technical Data
Plastin L, phosphorylated (Tyr28) (PLSL, L-Plastin, LC64P, Lymphocyte Cytosolic Protein 1, LCP1, LCP-1, Plastin 2, Plastin-2)
Highly conserved and widely expressed plastin proteins comprise a subset of actin-binding proteins that include proteins that promote actin bundling. Three plastins exhibiting differential expression are found in mam-mals and include L-plastin, T-plastin and I-plastin. T-plastin
(plastin-3) is found in cells of most solid tissues while I-plastin (plastin-1) is expressed specifically in kidney, colon and small intestine (1-3). L-plastin (plastin-2) or LCP1 (lymphocyte cytosolic protein 1) is mainly expressed in he-matopoietic cells and nonhematopoietic tumors, including increased expression correlated with metastatic progression in colon cancer cell lines (4). Overexpression of LCP1 in premetastatic cancer cell lines induces invasion and loss of
E-cadherin expression, which is characteristic of metastatic cancer cell lines (5). LCP1 becomes phosphorylated at Ser5 upon stimulation through the T-cell receptor/co-receptor complex (TCR/CD3) in association with the CD2 cell adhe-sion molecule or the CD28 receptor (6). Phosphorylation at Ser5 increases LCP1 ability to bind F-actin and increase cell
motility (7,8).

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

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:1000 Incubate membrane with diluted antibody in 5% w/v BSA, 1X TBS, 0.1% Tween-20 at 4C with gentle shaking, overnight.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

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 6 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.
