Our Plexin A1 (Sema Domain) rabbit polyclonal primary antibody from PhosphoSolutions is produced in-house. It detects human, mouse, and rat Plexin A1 (Sema Domain) and is antigen affinity purified. It is great for use in WB, ICC.
Western blots showing mouse brain (lanes 1 & 4), and Cos-7 cells untransfected (lanes 2 & 5) or transfected with mouse myc-tagged Plexin-A1 (lanes 3 & 6). The blots were probed with either affinity purified anti-Plexin-A1 (PP1471); lanes 1-3) or with mouse monoclonal anti-Myc (lanes 4-6).
Plexins are a family of large integral membrane proteins that complex with neuropilins to form semaphorin co-receptors. The extracellular region of plexins contains a semaphorin domain, multiple glycine-rich motifs, and MET-related sequences. The cytoplasmic region contains a Sex/Plexin domain and putative tyrosine phosphorylation sites that mediate signal transduction after activation. This region in Plexin-A1 binds the RhoGTPases, Rnd1 and RhoD. Recruitment of Rnd1 has been implicated in the cytoskeletal collapse that occurs after semaphorin-mediated activation of Plexin-A1, while RhoD may block this collapsing activity through interaction with the cytoplasmic region of Plexin-A1. The expression of Plexin-A1, along with the co-receptor Neuropilin-1, is upregulated in neurons after central nervous system injury. The axons from these neurons cannot cross semaphorin 3A-containing regions at the site of injury. Thus, semaphorin 3A and its co-receptors, Plexin-A1 and Neuropilin-1, may have significant roles in axon regeneration after neuronal injury.<
Antigen Affinity Purified
Plexin-A1 synthetic peptide (coupled to carrier protein) corresponding to a region within the semaphorin domain in human Plexin-A1. This sequence is highly conserved in rat and mouse Plexin-A1, and has low homology to other Plexin family members.
Human, Mouse, Rat
Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
PBS + 1 mg/ml BSA, 0.05% NaN3 and 50% glycerol
The antibody detects a 220 kDa* protein corresponding to the apparent molecular mass of Plexin-A1 on SDS-PAGE immunoblots of adult mouse brain and Cos-7 cells transfected with mouse Plexin-A1. In immunocytochemistry, this antibody co-localizes with anti-Myc in Cos-7 cells transfected with Myc-tagged mouse Plexin-A1.
