  • FunctionAs an inhibitor of cysteine proteinases, this protein is thought to serve an important physiological role as a local regulator of this enzyme activity.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in submandibular and sublingual saliva but not in parotid saliva (at protein level). Expressed in various body fluids, such as the cerebrospinal fluid and plasma. Expressed in highest levels in the epididymis, vas deferens, brain, thymus, and ovary and the lowest in the submandibular gland.
  • Involvement in diseaseAmyloidosis 6
    Macular degeneration, age-related, 11
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the cystatin family.
  • Post-translational
    The Thr-25 variant is O-glycosylated with a core 1 or possibly core 8 glycan. The signal peptide of the O-glycosylated Thr-25 variant is cleaved between Ala-20 and Val-21.

  • Standard Curve for Cystatin C (Analyte: ab7653) dilution range 1pg/ml to 1ug/ml using Capture Antibody Mouse monoclonal [Cyst-13] to Cystatin C (ab24327) at 1ug/ml and Detector Antibody Rabbit polyclonal to Cystatin C (ab85790) at 0.5ug/ml
  • ICC/IF image of ab24327 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab24327, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

We originally tested both ab24327 & ab85790 in sandwich ELISA using our Cystain C protein, ab7653 which is unfortunately no longer available in our catalogue.

As an alternative, I would suggest ab87...
