Detection of Human Ajuba by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of PC-3 human prostate cancer cell line, A549 human lung carcinoma cell line, and HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Human Ajuba Antigen Affinity‑purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5594) followed by HRP‑conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). A specific band was detected for Ajuba at approximately 55 to 60 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Ajuba (an Urdu word meaning "curiosity") is a 55‑60 kDa member of the Zyxin/Ajuba family of proteins. Ajuba is found in keratinocytes, astrocytes and neurons, and exhibits multiple functions. It shuttles between the nucleus and cytosol, and participates in alpha -catenin:F-actin binding, beta -catenin binding and phosphorylation, p62 aPKC scaffold protein binding and NF-kappa B activation, and Aurora-A binding and phosphorylation. Human Ajuba is 538 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a Pro-rich preLIM region that binds actin and Grb2 (aa 1‑335), an NES (aa 280‑287), and three LIM domains that bind multiple proteins (aa 336‑397, 401‑461 and 462‑530).
