Rabbit anti Human cortactin antibody recognizes the Src substrate cortactin, also known as amplaxin, ems1 sequence (mammary tumor and squamous cell carcinoma-associated (p80/85 src substrate) or oncogene EMS1.

CTTN is overexpressed in breast cancer and squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck (Patel et al. 1996). Cortactin is localized in the cytoplasm and in areas of the cell-substratum contacts. CTTN has two roles: (1) regulating the interactions between components of adherens-type junctions and (2) organizing the cytoskeleton and cell adhesion structures of epithelia and carcinoma cells. During apoptosis, the encoded protein is degraded in a caspase-dependent manner. The aberrant regulation of CTTN contributes to tumor cell invasion and metastasis (Li et al. 2001). Three splice variants that encode different isoforms have been identified for CTTN (provided by RefSeq, May 2010).

Rabbit anti Human cortactin antibody detects a band of 80 kDa. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.

Instructions For Use
Please refer to the PrecisionAb western blotting protocol. For additional information on secondary antibody dilution and exposure time see product web page.

Positive Control Lysate

Lysate Composition
400μg A431 lysate lyophilized in RIPA buffer.
Lysate Reconstitution
- If using DDT reconstitute the lyophilized lysate with 190μl DI H2O, add 200μl 2x Laemmli Sample Buffer and 10μl 2M DTT.
- If using BME reconstitute the lyophilized lysate with 180μl DI H2O, add 200μl 2x Laemmli Sample Buffer and 20μl BME.
Heat at 95°C for 5 minutes. For 10 well mini gels load 25μl. For other gel and comb formats please refer to the PrecisionAb western blotting protocol.
