|Protein Function||May play a role in cell differentiation, proliferation and apoptosis. Binds cholesterol in cholesterol-containing plasma membrane microdomains and may play a role in the organization of the apical plasma membrane in epithelial cells. During early retinal development acts as a key regulator of disk morphogenesis (PubMed:19228982). Involved in regulation of MAPK and Akt signaling pathways. In neuroblastoma cells suppresses cell differentiation such as neurite outgrowth in a RET-dependent manner. .|
|Tissue Specificity||In the submandibular gland, expressed on the apical side of epithelial cells. In the parotid gland, expressed in the intercalated ducts. In the sublingual gland, expressed in intercalated ducts. In the extraorbital lacrimal gland, expressed in the intercalated tubules and larger intralobular ducts. Expressed in the retina. Present in urine within small membrane particles (at protein level). In the embryo, expressed on the apical side of neuroepithelial cells and of other epithelia such as lung buds, gut and ureter buds. In the adult, expressed at the apical side of the kidney tubules and of the ependymal layer of the brain. Not expressed in gut, liver, lung, pituitary, adrenal, heart or spleen. Localized to the nascent disk membranes at the base of the rod outer segment in the retina (at protein level). .|
|Subcellular Localization||Apical cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell projection, microvillus membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell projection, cilium, photoreceptor outer segment. Endoplasmic reticulum . Endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment . Found in extracellular membrane particles in various body fluids such as ventricular fluid of the developing brain and urine.|
|Alternative Names||Prominin-1;Antigen AC133 homolog;Prominin-like protein 1;CD133;Prom1;Prom, Proml1;|

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.,
