Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-Fr 1/10 - 1/200. 1/10 for staining human tissue, 1/200 for staining rat tissue.
IHC-P 1/10 - 1/200. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval via the microwave method before commencing with IHC staining protocol. 1/10 for staining human tissue, 1/200 for staining rat and mouse tissue (see Abreview).
ELISA Use a concentration of 2 µg/ml.


  • Function

    Contributes to the lung's defense against inhaled microorganisms. May participate in the extracellular reorganization or turnover of pulmonary surfactant. Binds strongly maltose residues and to a lesser extent other alpha-glucosyl moieties.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the SFTPD family.
    Contains 1 C-type lectin domain.
    Contains 1 collagen-like domain.
  • Post-translational

    The N-terminus is blocked.
    Hydroxylation on proline residues within the sequence motif, GXPG, is most likely to be 4-hydroxy as this fits the requirement for 4-hydroxylation in vertebrates.
  • Cellular localization

    Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix. Secreted > extracellular space > surface film.
