    Known variously as APPG, 7B2 and neuroendocrine protein I, Secretogranin V was originally isolated from porcine pituitary in 1983. It soon became evident that Secretogranin V-like immunoreactants were present in many cell types from a variety of species, and it is now recognised to be widely distributed in neural and endocrine tissues. In the early 1990s full length (27kDa) Secretogranin V was shown to be a potent inhibitor of prohormone convertase PC2 activity, a subtilisin-like enzyme responsible for the proteolytic cleavage of many neuroendocrine precursor molecules, including proenkephalin, POMC and gastrin-17. mRNA distribution analysis revealed that in adult rat brain, expression of Secretogranin V mRNA was pan-neuronal, whereas PC2 mRNA was exclusively neuronal, but more restricted. PC2+/Secretogranin V- cells were not encountered in the adult, but were common in developing rat brain. These findings suggest that Secretogranin V may have intracellular functions other than PC2 maturation in certain cells, although some recent work shows a discordancy between mRNA expression and enzymic activity. The mechanism for PC2 maturation appears to involve pro-Secretogranin V binding to inactive pro-PC2 via its polyproline motif (116 PPNPCP 121) in the endoplasmic reticulum and chaperoning pro-PC2 to a later secretory pathway compartment where maturation of PC2 proceeds once pro-Secretogranin V is proteolytically processed by a furin-like convertase into a 21kDa fragment and a C-terminal peptide. It is the C-terminal peptide that potently inhibits maturation of pro-PC2 until the complex is subjected to a decreasing pH gradient along the secretory pathway. It seems likely that mature PC2 then cleaves the CT peptide at its internal lys-lys site. Secretogranin V knockout mice develop a severe Cushings-like phenotype and exhibit multiple metabolic and hormonal abnormalities, indicating that Secretogranin V is required for activation of PC2 in vivo. Conversely, PC2-null mice appear to be viable.

  • ab75197 (1µg/ml) staining secretogranin V in human pancreas using an automated system (DAKO Autostainer Plus). Using this protocol there is strong cytoplasmic staining of Islets of Langerhans.
    Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3 in 1 AR buffer citrate pH 6.0 in a DAKO PT link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 mins. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 min and detected with Dako Envision Flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with Diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that, for manual staining, optimization of primary antibody concentration and incubation time is recommended. Signal amplification may be required.
  • ICC/IF image of ab22699 stained PC12 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab22699, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

Thank you for contacting Abcam Because the ab22699 antibody is only partially purified, the antibody concentration is not determined, and therefore is unknown. I am sorry that we are not able to provide more information. Please let me know if I can be of assistance with anything else.
