Product nameAnti-Fibronectin antibody [IST-9]
See all Fibronectin primary antibodies
DescriptionMouse monoclonal [IST-9] to Fibronectin
SpecificityThis antibody reacts with an epitope (PEDGIHELFP) located in the ED-A sequence of cellular fibronectin (it therefore only detects the cFN and not extracellular FN (plasma FN)). (Liao et al.) The ED-A segment can be included or omitted from the molecule depending on the pattern of splicing of the mRNA precursors. In transformed or tumour derived cells the ED-A segment is about 10-times higher than in FN from normal fibroblasts, and it may therefore be a significant marker for malignancy (Borsi et al., and others).
Tested applicationsSuitable for: WB, RIA, ELISA, IHC-Fr, ICC/IF, Other, Blocking, IHC-Pmore details
Species reactivityReacts with: Rat, Chicken, Cow, Dog, Human, Pig, Monkey
Predicted to work with: Mouse, Rabbit
EpitopeLiao et al: Clone IST-9, binds to the Ile43 and His44 residues within ED-A in a conformationally dependent fashion, implicating the loop region encompassing both residues as critical for mediating ED-A function. The conformational domain C-C'-E of rat EIIIA encompassing the His44 residue is crucial for constituting the IST-9 epitope.

FunctionFibronectins bind cell surfaces and various compounds including collagen, fibrin, heparin, DNA, and actin. Fibronectins are involved in cell adhesion, cell motility, opsonization, wound healing, and maintenance of cell shape. Involved in osteoblast compaction through the fibronectin fibrillogenesis cell-mediated matrix assembly process, essential for osteoblast mineralization. Participates in the regulation of type I collagen deposition by osteoblasts.
Anastellin binds fibronectin and induces fibril formation. This fibronectin polymer, named superfibronectin, exhibits enhanced adhesive properties. Both anastellin and superfibronectin inhibit tumor growth, angiogenesis and metastasis. Anastellin activates p38 MAPK and inhibits lysophospholipid signaling.
Tissue specificityPlasma FN (soluble dimeric form) is secreted by hepatocytes. Cellular FN (dimeric or cross-linked multimeric forms), made by fibroblasts, epithelial and other cell types, is deposited as fibrils in the extracellular matrix. Ugl-Y1, Ugl-Y2 and Ugl-Y3 are found in urine.
Involvement in diseaseGlomerulopathy with fibronectin deposits 2
Sequence similaritiesContains 12 fibronectin type-I domains.
Contains 2 fibronectin type-II domains.
Contains 16 fibronectin type-III domains.
Developmental stageUgl-Y1, Ugl-Y2 and Ugl-Y3 are present in the urine from 0 to 17 years of age.
It is not known whether both or only one of Thr-2064 and Thr-2065 are/is glycosylated.
Forms covalent cross-links mediated by a transglutaminase, such as F13A or TGM2, between a glutamine and the epsilon-amino group of a lysine residue, forming homopolymers and heteropolymers (e.g. fibrinogen-fibronectin, collagen-fibronectin heteropolymers).
Phosphorylated by FAM20C in the extracellular medium.
Proteolytic processing produces the C-terminal NC1 peptide, anastellin.
Cellular localizationSecreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix.

Performed under reducing conditions.
Exposure time: 15 seconds
Blocked with 5% milk for 1 hour at 20°C.
Extracellular matrix expression pattern.
Fibronectin was displayed in microtissues after ten days. (Bar in A549/SV80 monocultures: 50 μm, bar in all other microtissues: 100 μm); Secretion of fibronectin could be observed in microtissues containing fibroblasts, whereas in all tumour cell monocultures no fibronectin secretion could be detected.
