Coronins are highly-conserved F-actin binding proteins that play important roles in lamellipodial protrusion during various types of cell motility. In yeast, coronins regulate cytoskeletal changes through inhibition of Arp2/3 complex. Human coronins have been classified in three subgroups type I (coronin-1A, -1B, -1C), type II (coronin-2A, -2B), and type III (coronin-7). These coronins have at least one large b-propeller region that mediates protein-protein interactions and type I and II coronins have coiled-coil regions involved in oligiomerization. Coronin-1B is ubiquitously expressed and localizes to the leading edge of cell protrusions in migrating fibroblasts. Both Coronin-1B and Coronin-1A interaction with Arp2/3 complex may be regulated by phosphorylation. PKC phosphorylates the N-terminus at Ser-2 , and this phosphorylation reduces interactions with Arp2/3 leading to diminshed cell motility.

Western blot analysis of human A431 cells treated with Calyculin A (100 nM) for 30 min (lanes 1 & 3) before treatment with lambda phosphatase (lanes 2 & 4). The blots were probed with anti-Coronin-1B (C-terminal region) (lanes 1 & 2) and anti-Coronin-1B (Ser-2) (lanes 3 & 4).

Immunocytochemical labeling of coronin-1B in rabbit spleen fibroblasts treated with Calyculin A. The cells were labeled with rabbit polyclonal Coronin-1B (C-terminus) and Coronin-1B (Ser-2) antibodies, then detected using appropriate secondary antibodies conjugated to Cy3. The antibodies were used in the absence (left) or presence (right) of their respective blocking peptide (CX2585 or CX2625).

Coronin-1B (C-terminus) synthetic peptide (coupled to carrier protein) corresponds to amino acids at the C-terminus of human coronin-1B. This sequence has high homology to the conserved site in rat and mouse coronin-1B, and less than 50% homology to similar regions in other coronins.

This antibody was affinity purified using Coronin-1B (C-terminus) peptide (without carrier). The antibody detects a 60 kDa* band corresponding to Coronin-1B on SDS-PAGE immunoblots of human A431 and HeLa, mouse brain, and rabbit spleen fibroblasts.

*All molecular weights (MW) are confirmed by comparison to Bio-Rad Rainbow Markers and to western blot mobilities of known proteins with similar MW.
