UFD1 forms a ternary complex with Nuclear protein localization protein 4 homolog (NPLOC4) and valosin-containing Protein (VCP), and this complex plays an essential role in detecting and binding ubiquinated proteins. The complex also aids in the export of misfolded proteins from the ER to the cytoplasm, where they are degraded by the proteasome. The NPLOC4-UFD1-VCP complex controls the disassembly of the mitotic spindle and the formation of a closed nuclear membrane after mitosis occurs.Product Details

- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.05 - 1 µg per ml. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration of 1 μg/ml is recommended. For immunoprecipitation, the suggested use of this reagent is 2.5 µg per ml. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
When stained for ICC, the methanol permeabilization method proved more effective than the Triton X-100 permeabilization method in localizing expression in the endoplasmic reticulum.
