General description

PCNT (pericentrin) is a centrosomal protein mapped on chromosome 21q22.3. It is localized in the centrosome as an integral component of the pericentriolar material.

Immunogen

Pericentrin recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Application

Anti-PCNT antibody produced in rabbit, a Prestige Antibody, is developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project . Each antibody is tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues. These images can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. The antibodies are also tested using immunofluorescence and western blotting. To view these protocols and other useful information about Prestige Antibodies and the HPA, visit sigma.com/prestige.

Biochem/physiol Actions

PCNT (pericentrin) is associated with various centrosomal activities. It forms a functional complex with pericentriolar material 1 (PCM1) in cells, which is responsible for centrosome function. In association with DISC1 (Disrupted-In-Schizophrenia 1), PCNT performs a vital role in the microtubule network assembly. During cytoskeleton assembly, it binds to the microtubule nucleation component, γ-tubulin, and plays a crucial role in the cell-cycle progression by directing a proper spindle organization. It has been observed that low level of PCNT alters the arrangement of mitotic spindles and leads missegregation of chromosomes. Mutation in PCNt gene causes two autosomal recessive disorders named Seckel syndrome and Majewski osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type II (MOPD II).

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.
