|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Other Accession||A5A777, NP_958437.1|
|Calculated MW||21609 Da|
|Other Names||Biogenesis of lysosome-related organelles complex 1 subunit 5, BLOC-1 subunit 5, Protein Muted homolog, BLOC1S5, MUTED|
|Target/Specificity||This MUTED antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 40-68 amino acids from the Central region of human MUTED.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||MUTED Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of the BLOC-1 complex, a complex that is required for normal biogenesis of lysosome-related organelles (LRO), such as platelet dense granules and melanosomes. In concert with the AP-3 complex, the BLOC-1 complex is required to target membrane protein cargos into vesicles assembled at cell bodies for delivery into neurites and nerve terminals. The BLOC-1 complex, in association with SNARE proteins, is also proposed to be involved in neurite extension. Plays a role in intracellular vesicle trafficking.|

This gene encodes a component of BLOC-1 (biogenesis of lysosome-related organelles complex 1). Components of this complex are involved in the biogenesis of organelles such as melanosomes and platelet-dense granules. A mouse model for Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome is mutated in the murine version of this gene. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Read-through transcription exists between this gene and the upstream EEF1E1 (eukaryotic translation elongation factor 1 epsilon 1) gene, as well as with the downstream TXNDC5 (thioredoxin domain containing 5) gene.
