Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab85716 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 24 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 37 kDa).|
FunctionClosely involved in osteoclastic bone resorption and may participate partially in the disorder of bone remodeling. Displays potent endoprotease activity against fibrinogen at acid pH. May play an important role in extracellular matrix degradation.
Tissue specificityPredominantly expressed in osteclasts (bones).
Involvement in diseaseDefects in CTSK are the cause of pycnodysostosis (PKND) [MIM:265800]. PKND is an autosomal recessive osteochondrodysplasia characterized by osteosclerosis and short stature.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase C1 family.

Performed under reducing conditions.
Predicted band size: 37 kDa
Observed band size: 24 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
Exposure time: 20 minutes
We hypothesize that the 24 kDa band represents the mature form of Cathepsin K.
