RACGAP1 (Rac GTPase-activating Protein 1, Male Germ Cell RacGap, MgcRacGAP, Protein CYK4 Homolg, CYK4, HsCYK-4, KIAA1478, MGCRACGAP)
Description:
Rho GTPases control a variety of cellular processes. There are 3 subtypes of Rho GTPases in the Ras superfamily of small G proteins: RHO (see MIM 165370), RAC (see RAC1; MIM 602048), and CDC42 (MIM 116952). GTPase-activating proteins (GAPs) bind activated forms of Rho GTPases and stimulate GTP hydrolysis. Through this catalytic function, Rho GAPs negatively regulate Rho-mediated signals. GAPs may also serve as effector molecules and play a role in signaling downstream of Rho and other Ras-like GTPases.[supplied by OMIM]

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:32,000
Western Blot: 1-3ug/ml
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 1ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
