  • Function

    Gel-forming mucin that is thought to contribute to the lubricating and viscoelastic properties of whole saliva and cervical mucus.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed on surface airway epithelia. Expressed mainly in mucous cells of submucosal glands of airway tissues. Highly expressed in the sublingual gland. Also found in submaxillary glands, endocervix, gall bladder, and pancreas.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 CTCK (C-terminal cystine knot-like) domain.
    Contains 3 HAT repeats.
    Contains 3 TIL (trypsin inhibitory-like) domains.
    Contains 3 VWFC domains.
    Contains 4 VWFD domains.
  • Domain

    The cysteine residues in the Cys-rich subdomain repeats are not involved in disulfide bonding.
  • Post-translational

    Highly glycosylated. C-, N- and O-glycosylated. C-mannosylated in the Cys-rich subdomains probably on the first Trp residue of the WXXW motif. Highly O-glycosylated in the Ser/Thr-rich tandem repeat (TR) region. The repeat region is about 59% O-glycosylated with a high abundance of NeuAc(2)Hex(1)HexNac1-ol.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for contacting us.

I have been searching the antibodies as per your requirements. We have different anti Mucin 5AC antibodies however I am not sure which would better suits you because is not very clear from the immunogen.

Regarding the anti MUC 5B we have ab105460 which detects the non glycosylated domain of MUC5B. Please check he datasheet.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
