Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab82172 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
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.

Boil tissue section in 10mM Citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min.


  • FunctionComponent of the asymmetric unit membrane (AUM); a highly specialized biomembrane elaborated by terminally differentiated urothelial cells. May play an important role in AUM-cytoskeleton interaction in terminally differentiated urothelial cells. It also contributes to the formation of urothelial glycocalyx which may play an important role in preventing bacterial adherence.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in ureter.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in UPK3A are a cause of renal adysplasia (RADYS) [MIM:191830]; also known as renal agenesis or renal aplasia. Renal agenesis refers to the absence of one (unilateral) or both (bilateral) kidneys at birth. Bilateral renal agenesis belongs to a group of perinatally lethal renal diseases, including severe bilateral renal dysplasia, unilateral renal agenesis with contralateral dysplasia and severe obstructive uropathy.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the uroplakin-3 family.
  • Cellular localizationEndoplasmic reticulum membrane. Heterodimer formation with UPK1B is a prerequisite to exit out of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER).
