    Suitable for: IPmore details
    Unsuitable for: WB
  • Species reactivity

    Reacts with: Human
    Predicted to work with: Chimpanzee, Monkey, Gorilla
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide within Human PCSK9 aa 450-500. The exact sequence is proprietary.
    Database link: Q8NBP7

  • Positive control

    • IP: HEK-293T whole cell lysate.
  • General notes

    ab245361 has not performed satisfactorily when used for WB of PCSK9 in crude preparations (e.g. whole cell lysate). This antibody can be used for WB of enriched (e.g. immunoprecipitated) sources of PCSK9.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab245361 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
IP Use at 2-10 µg/mg of lysate.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for WB.
  • Target

    • Function

      May be implicated in the differentiation of cortical neurons and may play a role in cholesterol homeostasis.
    • Tissue specificity

      Expressed in neuro-epithelioma, colon carcinoma, hepatic and pancreatic cell lines, and in Schwann cells.
    • Involvement in disease

      Defects in PCSK9 are the cause of familial hypercholesterolemia 3 (FH3) [MIM:603776]. FH3 inheritance is autosomal dominant.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the peptidase S8 family.
      Contains 1 peptidase S8 domain.
    • Post-translational

      The soluble zymogen undergoes autocatalytic intramolecular processing in the endoplasmic reticulum, resulting in the cleavage of its propeptide that remains associated with the secreted enzyme.

    • PCSK9 was immunoprecipitated from HEK-293T (human epithelial cell line from embryonic kidney transformed with large T antigen) whole cell lysate (1 mg for IP, 20% of IP loaded) with ab245361 at 6 µg per reaction. Western blot was performed from the immunoprecipitate using ab245361 at 1 µg/ml.
