Gene Information

human ... PICALM(8301)

General description

The gene clathrin assembly lymphoid myeloid leukemia (CALM or PICALM) is mapped to human chromosome 11q14. PICALM transcripts are ubiquitously expressed.


Phosphatidylinositol-binding clathrin assembly protein recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Biochem/physiol Actions

Clathrin assembly lymphoid myeloid leukemia (CALM or PICALM) works as an endocytosis adaptor. It acts along with clathrin, adaptor ptotein-2 and PI(4,5)P2 (phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate) in the initial stages of coated pit invagination at the membrane. It regulates size and maturation of clathrin coated vesicles. PICALM-AF10 (ALL1-fused gene from chromosome 10 protein) fusion protein is involved in t(10;11)(p13;q14) associated leukemogenesis. Polymorphism in PICALM is associated with Alzheimer′s disease and influences the episodic memory performance in old age.

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 APREST74790.

Physical form

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

Neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs), a cardinal pathological feature of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease (AD) are primarily composed of hyper-phosphorylated tau protein. Recently, several other molecules, including flotillin-1, phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate [PtdIns(4,5)P2] and cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (CDK5), have also been revealed as...

The size of endocytic clathrin-coated vesicles (CCVs) is remarkably uniform, suggesting that it is optimized to achieve the appropriate levels of cargo and lipid internalization. The three most abundant proteins in mammalian endocytic CCVs are clathrin and the two cargo-selecting...

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by the abnormal accumulation of amyloid-β (Aβ) peptides in the brain. The pathological process has not yet been clarified, although dysfunctional transport of Aβ across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) appears to be integral to disease...
