Glycophorin C overexpression 293T lysate (whole cell)
ab94093 is a 293T cell transfected lysate in which Human Glycophorin C has been transiently over-expressed using a pCMV-Glycophorin C plasmid. The lysate is provided in 1X Sample Buffer. Note: For more details about how the transfected lysate was prepared view preparation notes
Function: This 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 specificity: Glycophorin-C is expressed in erythrocytes. Glycophorin-D is ubiquitous.
Similarity: Belongs to the glycophorin-C family.
