Rabbit IgG polyclonal antibody for Cofilin-1(CFL1) detection. Tested with WB, IHC-P in Human;Mouse;Rat.
Cofilin, a member of the ADF/cofilin family, is actually a protein with 70% sequence homology to ADF, making it part of the ADF/cofilin family of small ADP-binding proteins. It is a ubiquitous actin-binding factor required for the reorganization of actin filaments. The protein is known to sever actin filaments by creating more positive ends on filament fragments, it can cause depolymerization at the minus end of filaments, thereby preventing their reassembly. As a long-lasting in vivo effect, cofilin recycles older ADP-F-actin, helping cell to maintain ATP-G-actin pool for sustained motility. pH, phosphorylation and phosphoinositides regulate cofilin’s binding and associating activity with actin.
