Description

General description

Angiomotin is a cell surface protein that plays a central role in tight junction maintenance and the uptake of proteins at tight junctions but also appears to regulate endothelial cell response and their migration toward growth factors as well as their response to angiostatin. Thus Angiomotin plays a role in blood vessel formation, cell migration, protein localization, chemotaxis, cellular polarity and many more cell-movement/migration activities. Angiomotin is a component of a multi-protein complex associated at tight junctions that includes ARHGAP17, AMOT, MPP5/PALS1, INADL/PATJ and PARD3/PAR3 proteins. Angiomotin is expressed in endothelial cells and found in placenta, blood vessels and skeletal muscle tissue, as well as at the leading edge of lamellipodia and cellular processes.

Western Blotting Analysis: A representative lot detected Angiomotin in MDCK cell lysate (Wells, C. D., et al. (2006). Cell. 125:535-548).
Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A representative lot detected Angiomotin in MDCK cells (Wells, C. D., et al. (2006). Cell. 125:535-548).

Target description

~150/80 kDa observed. Uniprot describes 2 isoforms produced by alternative splicing at ~118 kDa and ~73 kDa This high molecular weight observed could be due to high phosphorylation.

Physical form

Rabbit polyclonal serum with 0.05% sodium azide.

Unpurified

Storage and Stability
