Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab28209 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notesWB: 1/1000 - 1/5000. Detects a band of approximately 65 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 66 kDa). This antibody detects the pro form at 65kDa and the active form at 64kDa and also detects activation/breakdown products. The extracellular cleaved form is not detected. Dilution optimised using Chromogenic detection. Not yet tested in other applications. Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • FunctionSeems to specifically activate progelatinase A. May thus trigger invasion by tumor cells by activating progelatinase A on the tumor cell surface. May be involved in actin cytoskeleton reorganization by cleaving PTK7.
    • Tissue specificityExpressed in stromal cells of colon, breast, and head and neck. Expressed in lung tumors.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase M10A family.
      Contains 4 hemopexin-like domains.
    • DomainThe conserved cysteine present in the cysteine-switch motif binds the catalytic zinc ion, thus inhibiting the enzyme. The dissociation of the cysteine from the zinc ion upon the activation-peptide release activates the enzyme.
    • Post-translational
      The precursor is cleaved by a furin endopeptidase.
    • Cellular localizationMembrane. Melanosome. Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV.
