Background of alpha Adaptin

Alpha Adaptin, also known as adaptor related protein complex, alpha 1 subunit. The alpha adaptins are exclusively found in the endocytic coated vesicles. Huntingtin-interacting protein 1 (HIP1) is enriched in membrane-containing cell fractions and has been implicated in vesicle trafficking. Waelter et al. (2001) identified 3 HIP1-associated proteins, clathrin heavy chain (CLTC)and alpha-adaptin A and C. Coat proteins of approximately 100-kD (adaptins) are components of the adaptor complexes which link clathrin to receptors in coated vesicles. The alpha-adaptins separate into two bands on SDS gels.

Antibody Validation

Boster validates all antibodies on WB, IHC, ICC, Immunofluorescence and ELISA with known positive and negative samples to ensure specificity and high affinity.

1 Customer Q&As for Anti-Alpha-Adaptin AP2A1 Antibody (Monoclonal, 100/2)


We are currently using anti-Alpha-Adaptin antibody (Monoclonal, 100/2) MA1105 for rat tissue, and we are well pleased with the WB results. The species of reactivity given in the datasheet says human, rat. Is it possible that the antibody can work on zebrafish tissues as well?

The anti-Alpha-Adaptin antibody (Monoclonal, 100/2) (MA1105) has not been validated for cross reactivity specifically with zebrafish tissues, though there is a good chance of cross reactivity. We have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in zebrafish you can get your next antibody for free. Please contact me if I can help you with anything.
