Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab87360 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 21 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 14 kDa).|
FunctionMay function as an output molecule from the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) that transmits behavioral circadian rhythm. May also function locally within the SCN to synchronize output. Potently contracts gastrointestinal (GI) smooth muscle.
Tissue specificityExpressed in the testis and, at low levels, in the small intestine.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in PROK2 are the cause of Kallmann syndrome type 4 (KAL4) [MIM:610628]; also known as hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and anosmia. Anosmia or hyposmia is related to the absence or hypoplasia of the olfactory bulbs and tracts. Hypogonadism is due to deficiency in gonadotropin-releasing hormone and probably results from a failure of embryonic migration of gonadotropin-releasing hormone-synthesizing neurons. KAL4 patients have variable degrees of olfactory and reproductive dysfunction, but do not show any of the occasional clinical anomalies reported in Kallmann syndrome such as renal agenesis, cleft lip/palate, selective tooth agenesis, and bimanual synkinesis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the AVIT (prokineticin) family.
