Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab54728 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
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml. This antibody has only been tested in WB against the recombinant fragment used as immunogen. We have no data on the detection of endogenous protein.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 3 µg/ml.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 20801503


  • FunctionMay affect the rate of fibrils formation.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in DCN are the cause of congenital stromal corneal dystrophy (CSCD) [MIM:610048]. Corneal dystrophies are inherited, bilateral, primary alterations of the cornea that are not associated with prior inflammation or secondary to systemic disease. Most show autosomal dominant inheritance.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family. SLRP class I subfamily.
    Contains 12 LRR (leucine-rich) repeats.
  • Post-translational
    The attached glycosaminoglycan chain can be either chondroitin sulfate or dermatan sulfate depending upon the tissue of origin.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.
