You can check the tissue specificity below for information on selecting positive and negative control.
|Molecular Weight||123799 MW|
|Protein Function||Actin filament (F-actin)-binding protein involved in cell-matrix adhesion and cell-cell adhesion. Regulates cell- surface E-cadherin expression and potentiates mechanosensing by the E-cadherin complex. May also play important roles in cell morphology and locomotion. .|
|Tissue Specificity||Metavinculin is muscle-specific.|
|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the vinculin/alpha-catenin family.|
|Subcellular Localization||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton . Cell junction, adherens junction . Cell membrane ; Peripheral membrane protein ; Cytoplasmic side . Cell junction, focal adhesion . Cytoplasmic face of adhesion plaques. Recruitment to cell-cell junctions occurs in a myosin II- dependent manner. Interaction with CTNNB1 is necessary for its localization to the cell-cell junctions (By similarity). Colocalizes with LIMD1 in the focal adhesions. .|

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.,
