|Other Names||Lysosomal-associated transmembrane protein 4B, Lysosome-associated transmembrane protein 4-beta, LAPTM4B|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8774a was selected from the N-term region of human LAPTM4B. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Required for optimal lysosomal function (PubMed:21224396). Blocks EGF-stimulated EGFR intraluminal sorting and degradation. Conversely by binding with the phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate, regulates its PIP5K1C interaction, inhibits HGS ubiquitination and relieves LAPTM4B inhibition of EGFR degradation (PubMed:25588945). Recruits SLC3A2 and SLC7A5 (the Leu transporter) to the lysosome, promoting entry of leucine and other essential amino acid (EAA) into the lysosome, stimulating activation of proton-transporting vacuolar (V)-ATPase protein pump (V-ATPase) and hence mTORC1 activation (PubMed:25998567). Plays a role as negative regulator of TGFB1 production in regulatory T cells (PubMed:26126825). Binds ceramide and facilitates its exit from late endosome in order to control cell death pathways (PubMed:26280656).|

LAPTM4B belongs to the LAPTM4/LAPTM5 transporter family. It has an active role in disease progression of malignant cells and is involved in cell proliferation and multidrug resistance. The genetic polymorphism of LAPTM4B is a potential risk factor for the development of colon cancer and gastric cancer. The research results also indicated that LAPTM4B may be a clinically useful prognostic indicator for ovarian carcinoma and may play a role in human hepatocellular carcinoma.
