The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-Fr Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use at an assay dependent concentration. Predicted molecular weight: 97 kDa. A recommended starting concentration for Western blots is 1/1000 when using colorimetric substrates such as BCIP/NBT and 1/5000 for chemiluminescent substrates.


  • Function

    Plays a role in neuronal plasticity and the proteolytic action may subserve structural reorganizations associated with learning and memory operations.
  • Tissue specificity

    Brain and Leydig cells of the testis.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in PRSS12 are the cause of mental retardation autosomal recessive type 1 (MRT1) [MIM:249500]. Mental retardation is a mental disorder characterized by significantly sub-average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptative behavior and manifested during the developmental period. Non-syndromic mental retardation patients do not manifest other clinical signs.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the peptidase S1 family.
    Contains 1 kringle domain.
    Contains 1 peptidase S1 domain.
    Contains 4 SRCR domains.

Thank you for contacting us and letting us know about the trouble with this antibody. I do have a couple of additional questions so that I can better understand the situation. Did you also probe for a loading control like beta actin? What is the difference between your control and experimental samples? Could you send an image? I looked through all of our information on this antibody and protein, and I don't have an explanation for why the band would be seen around 65 kDa. We do guarantee all of our products to work as stated on the datasheet for up to 6 months after purchase, so I would be happy to send a replacement or issue a credit or refund if you would like. I look forward to hearing from you. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or if there is anything else we can do for you.
