Lyophilised:The lyophilized IgG is stable at 4°C for at least one month and for more than a year when kept at –20°C. When reconstituted in sterile water to a concentration of >0.5 mg/ml the antibody is stable for at least six months at 2-4°C in the presence of a preservative. Reconstituted antibody can also be aliquoted and stored at –20°C to –70°C for at least 1 year without detectable loss of activity. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Shipped at 4°C. Upon delivery aliquot and store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/5000. Predicted molecular weight: 24 kDa.
May be involved in cell migration and/or actin cytoskeleton organization. When expressed in keratinocytes, induces changes in cell morphology with transfected cells showing an elongated shape, numerous membrane protrusions, major reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton, increased motility and decreased cell adhesion. Required for normal lung cell proliferation and alveolus formation at birth. Induces platelet aggregation. Does not have any effect on folic acid or amino acid transport. Does not function as a water channel or as a regulator of aquaporin-type water channels.
Highly expressed in placenta, lung, skeletal muscle and brain. Weakly expressed in brain, kidney and liver. In placenta, expressed on the apical plasma membrane of endothelium. In lung, expressed in alveolar epithelium. Up-regulated in colorectal tumors and expressed in 25% of early oral squamous cell carcinomas.
Belongs to the podoplanin family.
Extensively O-glycosylated. Contains sialic acid residues. O-glycosylation is necessary for platelet aggregation activity. The N-terminus is blocked.
Membrane. Cell projection > filopodium membrane. Cell projection > lamellipodium membrane. Cell projection > microvillus membrane. Cell projection > ruffle membrane. Localized to actin-rich microvilli and plasma membrane projections such as filopodia, lamellipodia and ruffles.
