Gene Information

human ... PFN1(5216)

General description

Perforin (PRF1, PFN1) is a protein that can form transmembrane tubules and mediate cell lysis. PFN1 mutations have been linked to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, frontotemporal dementia and amilial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis type 2 (HPLH2).
Rabbit Anti-PFN1 antibody recognizes human, mouse, rat, pig, and bovine PFN1.


Synthetic peptide directed towards the N terminal region of human PFN1


Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.
Immunohistochemistry (1 paper)
Rabbit Anti-PFN1 antibody is suitable for western blot applications at a concentration of 1μg/ml.

Biochem/physiol Actions

PFN1 is a ubiquitous actin monomer-binding protein belonging to the profilin family. It is thought to regulate actin polymerization in response to extracellular signals. Deletion of this gene is associated with Miller-Dieker syndrome.The protein encoded by this gene is a ubiquitous actin monomer-binding protein belonging to the profilin family.

Mutations in the profilin 1 (PFN1) gene, encoding a protein regulating filamentous actin growth through its binding to monomeric G-actin, have been recently identified in familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Functional studies performed on ALS-associated PFN1 mutants demonstrated aggregation propensity...
