  • RelevanceANKH (progressive ankylosis protein homolog) is a multipass transmembrane protein that is expressed in joints and other tissues and controls pyrophosphate levels in cultured cells. The ANKH OR and ANKH TR are novel genetic markers that are significantly associated with ankylosing spondylitis. Mutation at the mouse ‘progressive ankylosis’ (ank) locus causes a generalized, progressive form of arthritis accompanied by mineral deposition, formation of bony outgrowths, and joint destruction. The human homolog is virtually identical to the mouse protein and ANKH-mediated control of pyrophosphate levels has been suggested as a possible mechanism regulating tissue calcification and susceptibility to arthritis in higher animals.

  • ab90104 staining ANKH in Mouse pre-osteoblast MC3T3 cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with formalin, permeabilized with TritonX and blocked with 3% serum for 1 hour at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/250 in 0.5% serum + PBS) for 12 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor®488-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/100) was used as the secondary antibody.
