Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab85388 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
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 75 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 79 kDa).

Target

  • Function
    Ligand for tyrosine-protein kinase receptors AXL, TYRO3 and MER whose signaling is implicated in cell growth and survival, cell adhesion and cell migration. GAS6/AXL signaling plays a role in various processes such as endothelial cell survival during acidification by preventing apoptosis, optimal cytokine signaling during human natural killer cell development, hepatic regeneration, gonadotropin-releasing hormone neuron survival and migration, platelet activation, or regulation of thrombotic responses.
  • Tissue specificity
    Plasma. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are widely expressed. Isoform 1 is the predominant form in spleen.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 4 EGF-like domains.
    Contains 1 Gla (gamma-carboxy-glutamate) domain.
    Contains 2 laminin G-like domains.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Isoform 1 is proteolytically processed after secretion to yield a N-terminal 36 kDa protein and a C-terminal 50 kDa protein including the laminin G-like domains which activates AXL.
    Gamma-carboxyglutamate residues are formed by vitamin K dependent carboxylation. These residues are essential for the binding of calcium.

  • Anti-GAS 6 antibody (ab85388) at 1 µg/ml + Human heart tissue lysate - total protein (ab29431) at 10 µg

    Secondary
    Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 79 kDa
    Observed band size: 75 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at: 37 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.


    Exposure time: 20 minutes


    We hypothesize that the 75 kDa band represents the mature form of GAS 6, due to the removal of a 30 amino acid signal pepide. Abcam welcomes customer feedback and would appreciate any comments regarding this product and the data presented above.
