Gene Name APBB1IP
Protein Name Amyloid beta A4 precursor protein-binding family B member 1-interacting protein
Molecular Weight 73183 MW
Protein Function Appears to function in the signal transduction from Ras activation to actin cytoskeletal remodeling. Suppresses insulin- induced promoter activities through AP1 and SRE. Mediates Rap1- induced adhesion. .
Tissue Specificity Widely expressed with high expression in thymus, spleen, lymph node, bone marrow and peripheral leukocytes. .
Sequence Similarities Belongs to the MRL family.
Subcellular Localization Cell membrane ; Peripheral membrane protein . Cell projection, lamellipodium . Cell junction, focal adhesion . Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton . Colocalizes with ENA/VASP proteins at lamellipodia tips and focal adhesions, and F- actin at the leading edge. At the membrane surface, associates, via the PH domain, preferentially with the inositol phosphates, PtdIns(5)P and PtdIns(3)P. This binding appears to be necessary for the efficient interaction of the RA domain to Ras-GTPases (By similarity). .

Background for Amyloid beta A4 precursor protein-binding family B member 1-interacting protein

APBB1IP(APBB1-Interacting Protein), also called RIAM or RARP1, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the APBB1IP gene. By genomic sequence analysis, Lafuente et al.(2004) mapped the RIAM gene to chromosome 10p12.1. Using promoter-reporter gene assays, Inagaki et al.(2003) found that RARP1 suppressed transcription from AP1 and SRE sites, but not CRE sites, in all cell lines examined. The proline-rich regions of RARP1 suppressed AP1 transactivation. Lafuente et al.(2004) found that RIAM interacted with profilin and VASP, molecules that regulate actin dynamics, as well as with RAP1-GTP.

Customer Q&As

Q: Do you offer BSA-free antibodies? Keyword: Bovine serum albumin, carrier protein, conjugation
A: Yes, please contact us at for more information about BSA-free antibodies and availability. The new BSA-free formula uses trehalose as a replacement to BSA. We have tested many alternative chemicals and found that trehalose protects the antibodies the best.
Q: Is your western blot protocol provided from the website applicable for all your antibodies? Keyword: applications, WB
A: The protocol is applicable for all our antibodies in WB, the NC Membrane(0.45μm or 0.22μm) and transfer time(70 mins or 50 mins) depends on the protein molecular weight, details can be found in included protocol.
Q: Can I conjugate markers to this antibody? Can I link custom conjugates to this antibody? Keyword: conjugation
A: The antibody is stored with BSA and cannot be conjugated with markers. Carrier free antibodies are available upon request. Please contact
Q: What should I use for negative control?
A: Please contact us for negative control suggestions. You can also check expression databases such as genecards, uniprot etc. Due to logistic reasons, we do not sell serum or lysates that we use internally for positive or negative control.
Q: Where can I find troubleshooting information? What should I do if I have unexpected bands, high background, no signal, weak signal
A: You can find Boster's troubleshoot guides under tech support tab. Please contact us for further assistance on troubleshooting your experiment.
Q: What is the immunogen sequence of this antibody? Is this antibody polyclonal or monoclonal?
A: You can find the immunogen sequence under "Immunogen" and clonality in the product name.
Q: What is the expected band size? Why is it different than the observed band size?
A: The expected band size is predicted on the size of the protein. The actual band size may be affected by a few other factors including but not limited to:
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.,
Q: What is the suggested dilution ratio for Western Blot (WB), Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and or ELISA standards? What is the optimal pH for the sample?
A: Check the datasheet for the product for details on dilution ratios for different experiments. You can find the datasheet button on the right side of the product page.
Q: What is the protocol you used for your Western blotting (WB) and Immunohistochemistry (IHC)?
A: Check our protocols under the tech support tab.
