GIRDers of actIN filament (Girdin) belongs to a family of proteins characterized by the presence of a coiled-coil domain. Girdin is an actin-binding protein that is activated by the serine/threonine kinase Akt. Girdin is a key modulator of the AKT-mTOR signaling pathway that controls the timing of newborn neuron integration during adult neurogenesis, including correct neuron positioning, dendritic development, and synapse formation. It also enhances Akt signaling by mediating phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)-dependent activation of Akt by growth factor receptor tyrosine kinases and G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Elevated levels of Girdin expression are associated with cancer metastasis. Girdin is also known as coiled-coil domain containing 88A (CCDC88A), G alpha-interacting vesicle-associated protein, Hook-related protein 1, Akt-phosphorylation enhancer (APE), GIV, GRDN, HkRP1, and KIAA1212.
These products are affinity-purified IgG antibodies that recognize human Girdin protein. The antibodies were raised in rabbit using synthetic peptides, and can be used for Western blot (WB) detection, immunohistochemical (IHC) detection, immunocytochemical (ICC) detection, or immunoprecipitation (IP) of human Girdin protein.
