|Protein Name||Apoptosis inhibitor 5(API-5)|
|Molecular Weight||59005 MW|
|Protein Function||Antiapoptotic factor that may have a role in protein assembly. Negatively regulates ACIN1. By binding to ACIN1, it suppresses ACIN1 cleavage from CASP3 and ACIN1-mediated DNA fragmentation. Also known to efficiently suppress E2F1-induced apoptosis. Its depletion enhances the cytotoxic action of the chemotherapeutic drugs. .|
|Tissue Specificity||Expressed in all tissues tested, including heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas. Highest levels in heart, pancreas and placenta. Highly expressed in several cancers. Preferentially expressed in squamous cell carcinoma versus adenocarcinoma in non-small cell lung cancer. .|
|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the API5 family.|
|Subcellular Localization||Nucleus . Cytoplasm . Mainly nuclear. Can also be cytoplasmic.|
|Alternative Names||Apoptosis inhibitor 5;API-5;Antiapoptosis clone 11 protein;AAC-11;Cell migration-inducing gene 8 protein;Fibroblast growth factor 2-interacting factor;FIF;Protein XAGL;API5;MIG8;|

1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands
3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.
4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
