Neural Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)


Anti-WASL antibody produced in rabbit, a Prestige Antibody, is developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project . Each antibody is tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues. These images can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. The antibodies are also tested using immunofluorescence and western blotting. To view these protocols and other useful information about Prestige Antibodies and the HPA, visit

Biochem/physiol Actions

Neural Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein is a protein encoded by the WASL gene in humans. It is mapped on to chromosome 7q31.3. It is referred as NWASP and N-WASP. It is a major cytoskeletal regulator that stimulates Arp2/3-mediated actin nucleation. It regulates the cytoskeleton and junctional integrity at the epithelial zonula adherens. It is a junctional protein and depletion decreased junctional F-actin content and organization. It plays a role in assembly of kinetochores and attachment of microtubules to chromosomes, essential for accurate chromosome congression and segregation.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST70077.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

Cells migrating over 2D substrates are required to polymerise actin at the leading edge to form lamellipodia protrusions and nascent adhesions to anchor the protrusion to the substrate. The major actin nucleator in lamellipodia formation is the Arp2/3 complex, which

We recently identified Neural Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome Protein (N-WASP) from bovine brain. An expression analysis using bovine cDNA revealed that N-WASP plays critical roles in the regulation of the cortical actin cytoskeleton. Here, we report the molecular cloning of N-WASP homologs

The accurate distribution and segregation of replicated chromosomes through mitosis is crucial for cellular viability and development of organisms. Kinetochores are responsible for the proper congression and segregation of chromosomes. Here, we show that neural Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (N-WASP) localizes

Metastasizing tumor cells use matrix metalloproteases, such as the transmembrane collagenase MT1-MMP, together with actin-based protrusions, to break through extracellular matrix barriers and migrate in dense matrix. Here we show that the actin nucleation-promoting protein N-WASP (Neural Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein)
