Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notes
    ELISA: 1/40,000 - 1/200,000.
    WB: 1/10000 - 1/20000. Detects a band of approximately 58 kDa.

    Although not tested, this antibody is likely functional in immunohistochemistry and immunoprecipitation.

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • Function

      Promotes endocytosis, possesses opsonic properties and influences the mineral phase of bone. Shows affinity for calcium and barium ions.
    • Tissue specificity

      Synthesized in liver and selectively concentrated in bone matrix. Secreted in plasma. It is also found in dentin in much higher quantities than other plasma proteins.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the fetuin family.
      Contains 2 cystatin fetuin-A-type domains.
    • Post-translational

      Phosphorylation sites are present in the extracelllular medium.
      O- and N-glycosylated. O-glycosylated with core 1 or possibly core 8 glycans. N-glycan at Asn-156: Hex5HexNAc4; N-glycan heterogeneity at Asn-176: Hex5HexNAc4 (major) and Hex6HexNAc5 (minor).

    • All lanes : Anti-Fetuin antibody (ab34505) at 1/10000 dilution

      Lane 1 : 250 ng of purified
      human Fetuin
      Lane 2 : 5µl of human serum at 1/50 dilution

      Observed band size: 58 kDa
      why is the actual band size different from the predicted?

      A doublet band or slightly lower molecular weight band (see lane 1) may be visible by western blot due to proteolytic processing, variable glycosylation and/or phosphorylation. Proteolytic processing may include the removal of a 40 amino acid residue bridging peptide from the A and B chains of fetuin in vivo.
