Background informationFukutin, a secreted protein, is expressed in various tissues in normal individuals. Fukutin colocalizes with a Golgi marker and a granular cytoplasmic distribution, suggesting that fukutin passes through the Golgi before being packaged into secretory vesicles. Fukutin may be located in the extracellular matrix, where it interacts with and reinforces a large complex encompassing the outside and inside of muscle membranes; alternatively, as a secreted protein, fukutin may cause muscular dystrophy by an unknown mechanism. The fukutin gene is expressed at similar levels in control fetal and adult brain, but is much reduced in Fukuyama congenital muscular dystrophy (FCMD) brains. Fukutin deficiency affects the modification of glycosylation of DAG1 (α-dystroglycan), which then cannot localize or function properly and may be degraded or eluted from the extracellular surface membrane of the muscle fiber. FCMD is the first human disease known to be caused by an ancient retrotransposal integration. The gene which encodes fukutin maps to human chromosome 9q31.

AdvisoryAvoid freeze/thaw cycles as they may denaturate the polypeptide chains of the antibody, thus reducing its reactivity, specificity and sensitivity. For antibodies that are in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies small amounts could become entrapped on the seal or the walls of the tube. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to gather all the solution on the bottom.
PropertiesFor facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.
ConjugationAlexa Fluor,ALEXA FLUOR® 594
ConjugatedAlexa conjugate 1
DescriptionThis antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
GroupPolyclonals and antibodies
AboutPolyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
