      • Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin)
      Applications Not Recommended
      • Immunoprecipitation
      Application NotesWestern blot. Recognizes a protein of 55 kDa. Suggested working dilution is 1:100-1:1,000. Suggested blocking buffer is 3% BSA in PBS or 3% non fat milk in PBS.

      Immunohistochemistry on formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tissue sections. Suggested working dilution is 1:100-1:1,000.

      Immunocytochemistry on cold methanol fixed cultured cells. Suggested working dilution is 1:100-1:1,000.

      Optimal working dilutions must be determined by the end user.
      Biological Information
      ImmunogenHuman fascin
      ConcentrationPlease refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the lot-specific concentration.
      SpecificityFascin. The antibody is strongly positive when antigen-presenting dendritic cells are matured. MAB3582 is a sensitive marker for Reed-Sternberg Cells of Hodgkin's Disease. The protein is an actin bundling protein specifically localized in filopodia and growth cones.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: Q16658 # Organizes filamentous actin into bundles with a minimum of 4.1:1 actin/fascin ratio. Probably involved in the assembly of actin filament bundles present in microspikes, membrane ruffles, and stress fibers.
      SIZE: 493 amino acids; 54530 Da
      SUBUNIT: Associates with beta-catenin.
      TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Ubiquitous.
      PTM: Phosphorylation on Ser-39 inhibits the actin-binding ability of fascin.
      DISEASE: SwissProt: Q16658 # Marks and mediates breast cancer metastasis to the lungs. FSCN1 is not functionally validated but achieves the highest statistical significance (P less than 0.000001). Those subjects expressing the lung metastasis signature have a significantly poorer lung metastasis-free survival, but not bone metastasis-free survival, compared to subjects without the signature.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: Q16658 ## Belongs to the fascin family.
