  • Positive control
    • WB: Mouse liver tissue lysate ICC/IF: HepG2 cells.
  • General notes

    This antibody can detect the membrane bound form, not the mature form. It detects SFTPC in the cytoplasm before propeptide (1-23aa) is removed from golgi.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab170699 in the following tested applications.

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

  • Function
    Pulmonary surfactant associated proteins promote alveolar stability by lowering the surface tension at the air-liquid interface in the peripheral air spaces.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in SFTPC are the cause of pulmonary surfactant metabolism dysfunction type 2 (SMDP2) [MIM:610913]; also called pulmonary alveolar proteinosis due to surfactant protein C deficiency. A rare disease associated with progressive respiratory insufficiency and lung disease with a variable clinical course, due to impaired surfactant homeostasis. It is characterized by alveolar filling with floccular material that stains positive using the periodic acid-Schiff method and is derived from surfactant phospholipids and protein components. Excessive lipoproteins accumulation in the alveoli results in severe respiratory distress.
    Genetic variations in SFTPC are a cause of susceptibility to respiratory distress syndrome in premature infants (RDS) [MIM:267450]; also known as RDS in prematurity. RDS is a lung disease affecting usually premature newborn infants. It is characterized by deficient gas exchange, diffuse atelectasis, high-permeability lung edema and fibrin-rich alveolar deposits called 'hyaline membranes'.

Cell harvesting/tissue preparation method: ATII cells were isolated from normal human lung tissue following collagenase and trypsin digestion, DNase I treatment, Percoll density gradient centrifugation, filtration through 40um cell strainers, and depletion of alveolar macrophages using anti-CD14 antibody. 1 - 2 x 10^6 Cells were then washed with FACS buffer (PBS containing 1% BSA and 0.02% NaN3) three times in 96-well U bottom plate by centrifugation. Cells were then stained with Anti-Prosurfactant Protein C antibody (ab170699) (1:15) for 30min at 4oC in the dark, followed by secondary antibody, sheep anti-rabbit IgG Dylight649 (1:100 AbD Serotec) in FACS buffer for 30min at 4oC in the dark. Cells were washed with FACS buffer three times before FACS analysis.
Sample buffer: FACS buffer (PBS containing 1% BSA and 0.02% NaN3)
