Gene Information

human ... PCM1(5108)

General description

The gene PCM1 (pericentriolar material 1) is mapped to human chromosome 8p22. The encoded protein localizes to cytoplasmic granules known as ‘centriolar satellites′, which are present around the centrosome. It has a molar mass of 228kDa protein.


Pericentriolar material 1 protein recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Biochem/physiol Actions

The gene PCM1 (pericentriolar material 1) encodes a large centrosomal protein with multiple coiled-coil domains that forms a complex with disrupted-in-schizophrenia 1 (DISC1) and Bardet-Biedl syndrome 4 protein (BBS4). This binding helps in synergistic targeting of PCM1 and other cargo proteins to the centrosome. It functions as a scaffold and facilitates the targeting of several proteins to the centrosome in a dynein motor-dependent manner and helps in regulating microtubular dynamics. The centriolar satellites that contain PCM1 protein participate in microtubule- and dynactin-dependent recruitment of proteins to the centrosome and mediate the assembly of centrosomal proteins and microtubule organization. Defects in this gene are associated with reduction in gray matter volume and susceptibility to schizophrenia.

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.
