TM4SF1/L6 in A549 Human Cell Line.
TM4SF1/L6 was detected in immersion fixed A549 human lung carcinoma cell line using Mouse Anti-Human TM4SF1/L6 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8164) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cell membranes. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.
TM4SF1/L6 in Human Breast Cancer Tissue.
TM4SF1/L6 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human breast cancer tissue using Mouse Anti-Human TM4SF1/L6 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8164) at 5 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Mouse IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC001). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm in cancer cells.

TM4SF1 (Transmembrane 4 L6 family Member 1; also L6 and M3s1) is a 23-28 kDa member of the L6 tetraspanin family of molecules. It is expressed by fibroblasts, endothelial cells and a variety of tumor cells. TM4SF1 is embedded in both the plasma membrane and the membrane of late endocytic organelles. Here, it appears to be ubiquitinated, and to regulate endocytosis, an action that impacts effective cell migration. TM4SF1 is reported to interact with alpha 5 and beta 1 integrins, and this may impact cell motility. It also suppresses the expression of CD63 and CD82, two molecules that impede cell mobility. Mouse TM4SF1 is a 202 amino acid (aa) 4‑transmembrane (TM) glycoprotein. It contains a short N-terminal cytoplasmic region (aa 1-9), followed by four TM regions and another C-terminal cytoplasmic region (aa 183-202). There is one potential isoform variant that shows an alternative start site at Met60. Over aa 116-161, mouse TM4SF1 shares 73% and 96% aa sequence identity with human and rat TM4SF1, respectively.
