|Protein Name||Heat shock protein HSP 90-alpha|
|Molecular Weight||84660 MW|
|Protein Function||Molecular chaperone that promotes the maturation, structural maintenance and proper regulation of specific target proteins involved for instance in cell cycle control and signal transduction. Undergoes a functional cycle that is linked to its ATPase activity. This cycle probably induces conformational changes in the client proteins, thereby causing their activation. Interacts dynamically with various co-chaperones that modulate its substrate recognition, ATPase cycle and chaperone function. Binds bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) et mediates LPS-induced inflammatory response, including TNF secretion by monocytes. .|
|Subcellular Localization||Cytoplasm. Melanosome. Cell membrane. Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV.|
|Alternative Names||Heat shock protein HSP 90-alpha;Heat shock 86 kDa;HSP 86;HSP86;Lipopolysaccharide-associated protein 2;LAP-2;LPS-associated protein 2;Renal carcinoma antigen NY-REN-38;HSP90AA1;HSP90A, HSPC1, HSPCA;|

Predicted bind size: 83KD
Observed bind size: 83KD
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.,
