The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.3 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 26 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 21 kDa).
Approx 26kDa band observed in Human Heart and Kidney lysates and in Mouse and Rat Kidney lysates (calculated MW of 21.0kDa according to NP_001312.1). The observed molecular weight corresponds to earlier findings in literature with different antibodies (Huber et al, J Biol Chem. 2000 Feb 25;275(8):5504-11; PMID: 10681529).
Use a concentration of 3 - 6 µg/ml.
FunctionDrastically down-regulated in response to PDGF-BB or cell injury, that promote smooth muscle cell proliferation and dedifferentiation. Seems to play a role in the development of the embryonic vascular system.
Tissue specificityHighly expressed in the aorta, but not in heart and skeletal muscle.
