The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent concentration. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval (boil tissue section in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min).
FunctionCell surface proteoglycan that bears heparan sulfate. Inhibits the dipeptidyl peptidase activity of DPP4. May be involved in the suppression/modulation of growth in the predominantly mesodermal tissues and organs. May play a role in the modulation of IGF2 interactions with its receptor and thereby modulate its function. May regulate growth and tumor predisposition.
Tissue specificityHighly expressed in lung, liver and kidney.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in GPC3 are the cause of Simpson-Golabi-Behmel syndrome type 1 (SGBS1) [MIM:312870]; also known as Simpson dysmorphia syndrome (SDYS). SGBS is a condition characterized by pre- and postnatal overgrowth (gigantism) with visceral and skeletal anomalies.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glypican family.
Cellular localizationCell membrane and Secreted > extracellular space.
