Myosin VB (MYO5B) gene spanning 372,296 bases on genomic DNA with 42 exons is mapped to human chromosome 18q21.1. The gene codes for ubiquitously expressed myosin Vb protein. MYO5B contains N-terminal motor domain and C-terminal cargo-binding domain.
myosin VB recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)
Anti-MYO5B antibody produced in rabbit has been used in immunostaining and western blot analysis.
Myosin VB (MYO5B) acts as a motor for actin dependent organelle trafficking. Mutation or loss of MYO5B gene is associated with the development of an autosomal recessive syndrome, microvillus inclusion disease (MVID). Decreased expression of the protein has been observed in patients of gastric cancer. Therefore, MYO5B might act as a potential biomarker for gastric cancer. MYO5B interacts with Ras-related proteins 8a and 11a (Rab8a–Rab11a) component and stimulates stretch-induced exocytosis in bladder umbrella cells.
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.
Solution in phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide.
