MAP7 Antibodies, cDNA Clones Research Reagents

MAP7 (Microtubule Associated Protein 7, also known as EMAP115; E-MAP-115), located on 6q23.3, is a Protein Coding gene. The product of this gene is a microtubule-associated protein that is predominantly expressed in cells of epithelial origin. It belongs to the MAP7 family. MAP7 is a ubiquitous microtubule-associated protein (MAP) that organizes the microtubule cytoskeleton in mitosis and neuronal branching. MAP7 is a retinoic acid-inducible gene expressed in cells of epithelial origin and implicated in microtubule functions required for spermatogenesis.

    MAP7 の背景知識

    MAP7 (ensconsin, E-MAP-115) is a ubiquitous MAP that organizes the microtubule cytoskeleton in mitosis and neuronal branching. Microtubule-associated protein MAP7 (ensconsin in Drosophila) is an essential kinesin-1 cofactor and promotes kinesin-1 recruitment to microtubules. MAP7 is a unique microtubule-associated protein that interacts with both microtubules and the motor protein kinesin-1. Structure-function analysis in rat embryonic sensory neurons shows that the kinesin-1 interacting domain in MAP7 is required for axon and branch growth but not for branch formation. Also, two unique microtubule-binding sites are found in MAP7 that have distinct dissociation kinetics and are both required for branch formation. Furthermore, MAP7 recruits kinesin-1 dynamically to microtubules, leading to alterations in organelle transport behaviors, particularly pause/speed switching. Microtubule-associated protein 7 (MAP7) plays an important role in cancer cells.
