Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 21 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 21 kDa).


  • Function
    This protein is, quantitatively, the main protein synthesized and secreted in the endometrium from mid-luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and during the first semester of pregnancy.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Lipocalin family.
  • Post-translational
    At least two differentially glycosylated forms are found. Glycodelin-A (GdA) (amniotic fluid) with contraceptive and immunosuppressive activities and glycodelin-S (Gds) (seminal plasma) whose role is not yet known. The gender-specific glycosylation may serve to regulate key process involved in human reproduction.
