Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-Rab8 antibody vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.
Related Product Information for
anti-Rab8 antibody
The Rab8 GTPase is a member of the Ras superfamily that functions in protein transport and membrane restructuring (1). Studies show that Rab8 is localized to the trans Golgi network (TGN), basolateral membrane and vesicular structures where it helps regulate target protein transport between TGN and the basolateral membrane (1-3). Overexpression studies and mutation analysis of Rab8 and its associated Rab8GEF indicate additional roles in actin and microtubule remodeling during polarized membrane transport and membrane protrusion formation (4-6). Rab8 associates with myosin Vb and is required for translocation of GLUT4 following insulin stimulation in muscle (7,8). Control of target protein vesicle transport by Rab8 also regulates MT1-MMP activity during extracellular matrix formation and JRAB/MICAL-L2 at tight junction formation (9,10).
