ab172730 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
Application notesIs unsuitable for IHC-P.
FunctionThis protein is a minor sialoglycoprotein in human erythrocyte membranes. The blood group Gerbich antigens and receptors for Plasmodium falciparum merozoites are most likely located within the extracellular domain. Glycophorin-C plays an important role in regulating the stability of red cells.
Tissue specificityGlycophorin-C is expressed in erythrocytes. Glycophorin-D is ubiquitous.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glycophorin-C family.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Linked to the membrane via band 4.1.
