Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab48895 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
ICC Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use a concentration of 0.6 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 47 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 47 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.


  • FunctionThe mammalian zona pellucida, which mediates species-specific sperm binding, induction of the acrosome reaction and prevents post-fertilization polyspermy, is composed of three to four glycoproteins, ZP1, ZP2, ZP3, and ZP4. ZP3 is essential for sperm binding and zona matrix formation.
  • Tissue specificityOocytes.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ZP domain family. ZPC subfamily.
    Contains 1 ZP domain.
  • DomainThe ZP domain is involved in the polymerization of the ZP proteins to form the zona pellucida.
  • Post-translational
    Proteolytically cleaved before the transmembrane segment to yield the secreted ectodomain incorporated in the zona pellucida.
    O-glycosylated; removal of O-linked glycans may play an important role in the post-fertilization block to polyspermy.
