Data Example

Western Blot Detection of Human  alpha -Parvin by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human alpha -Parvin by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HUVEC human umbilical vein endothelial cells and human tonsil tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human alpha -Parvin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5556) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for alpha -Parvin at approximately 55 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

Background: alpha-Parvin

alpha -Parvin (parvus [Latin for "small"]-A/ alpha ; also actopaxin and PARV-A) is a 53 kDa member of the parvin family, alpha ‑actinin superfamily of proteins. It is widely expressed, and participates in actin filament assembly that precedes cell migration. Human PARVA is 372 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains two CH/calponin homology domains (aa 99‑202 and 265‑369), two NLSs (aa 19‑26 and 38‑40), and a recently identified paxillin binding sequence (aa 248‑256). Multiple phosphorylation sites occur between Ser4 and Thr16 that are apparently utilized. PARVA is likely to exist as a dimer. There are three isoform variants of PARVA. All three contain an alternate start site at Met41, with one also showing a 21 aa substitution for aa 239‑372, and a second also showing a 46 aa substitution for aa 134‑372, respectively. Over aa 46‑133, human and mouse PARVA share 95% aa identity.
