  • Application notesELISA: Use at an assay dependent dilution.
    IHC-P: Use at an assay dependent dilution. Perform enzymatic antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol (0.1% trypsin).
    IHC-Fr: Use at an assay dependent dilution. Fix with methanol:acetone.
    WB: Use at an assay dependent dilution. Predicted molecular weight: 26.6 kDa.

  • Target

    • FunctionCytotoxin and helminthotoxin. Also induces non-cytolytic histamine release from human basophils. Involved in antiparasitic defense mechanisms and immune hypersensitivity reactions. The proform acts as a proteinase inhibitor, reducing the activity of PAPPA.
    • Tissue specificityHigh levels of the proform in placenta and pregnancy serum; in placenta, localized to X cells of septa and anchoring villi. Lower levels in a variety of other tissues including kidney, myometrium, endometrium, ovaries, breast, prostate, bone marrow and colon.
    • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 C-type lectin domain.
    • Developmental stageLevels of the proform increase in serum and placenta during pregnancy.
    • Post-translational
      modifications
      Nitrated.
    • Cellular localizationCytoplasmic vesicle > secretory vesicle. The proform is secreted. The mature protein is found in the matrix of the eosinophil's large specific granule and Secreted. The proform is secreted.
