General description

Huntingtin-interacting protein-1 (HIP1), a cytosolic protein, is a member of the huntingtin-interacting protein family. HIP1 and HIP1-related (HIP1R) proteins have the same domain structure, consisting of a phospholipid-binding epsin N-terminal homology (ENTH), a leucine zipper motif, a central coiled-coiled and a C-terminal actin-binding domain (THATCH). The HIP1 gene is expressed broadly in the endothelium of small blood vessels, cardiac muscle, gastric epithelium, brain tissues and liver.


Anti-HIP1 (C-terminal) specifically recognizes rat and mouseHIP1.


synthetic peptide corresponding to a sequence at the C-terminus of rat HIP1, conjugated to KLH. The corresponding sequence is highly conserved (89% identity) in mouse HIP1.


Anti-HIP1 (C-terminal) antibody produced in rabbit may be used in immunoblotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Huntingtin-interacting protein-1 (HIP1) and its homolog HIP1-related (HIP1R) is essential for clathrin-mediated membrane traffic and endocytosis. It is associated with the early recruitment and late-stage maturation of coated pits vesicles. HIP1 is essential for the survival of germline progenitors and several cell lines. It interacts with huntingtin (Htt) and is involved in the pathogenesis of Huntington′s disease (HD). HIP1 binds to clathrin and the endocytic adaptor complex (AP2) and modulates the binding of HIP1 to actin. This leads to the alterations in actin cytoskeleton structure.The fusion between HIP1 and platelet-derived growth factor β receptor might lead to chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. The HIP1 gene is highly expressed in several human cancers, including colon and prostate cancer. It is also present in the breast, melanoma, brain and ovarian tumors. Over-expression of HIP1 transforms fibroblasts and elevates the levels of multiple growth factor receptors.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phos­phate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Storage and Stability

For continuous use, store at 2-8 °C for up to one month. For extended storage, freeze in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing, or storage in “frost-free” freezers,is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use. Working dilutions should be discarded if not used within 12 hours.
