  • Function
    Acts as a receptor for urokinase plasminogen activator. Plays a role in localizing and promoting plasmin formation. Mediates the proteolysis-independent signal transduction activation effects of U-PA. It is subject to negative-feedback regulation by U-PA which cleaves it into an inactive form.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in neurons of the rolandic area of the brain (at protein level). Expressed in the brain.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 3 UPAR/Ly6 domains.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted and Cell membrane.

Thank you for your email. The lot number customer used in 2007 was different than you have been using. So we would expect some variations due to cell line or other lab related factors. I can assure you that there is no change in the antibody its...

Thank you for contacting us. Could you specify are the cells just dying or there is some kind of fungus or bacterial growth? The antibody solution only contain sodium azide as cytotoxic compound however the affect of this would be minimal at th...

Thank you for your enquiry. Ab3129 has not yet been tested for cross-reactivity with mouse uPA, so I would suggest a control from human samples. For example, uPA and uPAR are known to be overexpressed in mesenchymal and epithelial tumor cells. If yo...
