General description

Tensin 1 (TNS1) is encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 2q35. The encoded protein is localized to focal adhesions and is mainly expressed in renal tubular epithelial cells (TECs).


synthetic peptide corresponding to a sequence located in the internal region of human tensin1, conjugated to KLH. The corresponding sequence is identical in rat and mouse tensin1.


Anti-Tensin 1 antibody may be used in immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry.
Anti-Tensin 1 antibody produced in rabbit has been used in immunostaining and immunoblotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Tensin 1 associates with actin, integrin, FAK, p130Cas, DLC-1 and protein phosphatase PP1 which affects cell polarization, migration and invasion. Tensin 1 undergoes extensive Ser/Thr and Tyr phosphorylation induced by extracellular matrix (ECM), various growth factors and oncogenes. In addition, tensin 1 is cleaved by calpain II, a focal adhesion protease, suggesting that tensin 1 plays important roles in organizing the actin cytoskeleton and mediating signal transduction.
Tensin 1 (TNS1) contributes to transforming growth factor (TGF)-β-induced myofibroblast differentiation and extracellular fibronectin and collagen matrix formation. Disruption in the gene and associated signaling might hinder tissue fibrosis. The encoded protein anchors to stress fibers by interacting with cytoplasmic tails of integrins and increases metastatic abilities of cancer cells. Tensin plays a vital role in activation of the c-Jun N-terminal kinases (JNK) and p38 pathways.
