Immunogen Human symplekin
Clone Sym-TJ-E150
Isotype IgG1
Specificity The mab reacts specifically with symplekin (a 150 kDa polypeptide) present in 1) tight junctions (zonula occludens) of polar epithelia and Sertoli cells of testis (but not their vascular endothelia!) and 2) exclusively in the nucleoplasm of these and many other cell types which do not form tight junctions (e.g. stratified epithelia such as oesophagus, tongue mucosa, epidermis, squamous cell carcinoma, nonepithelia such as fibroblasts, endothelia, lymphocytes).
Purification Supernatant
Alternative Name Symplekin / SYMPK
Background Symplekin, 126.5 kD polypeptide (calculated from aa sequence data), apparent Mr 150 kD (after SDS-PAGE), pI 6.5
Alternate names: SPK
Gene ID 8189
NCBI Accession NP_004810.2
UniProt Q92797
Application Notes Immunoblotting. Immunohistochemistry: For nucleoplasmic staining a modified Carnoy fixation procedure issuggested (60% ethanol, 30% chloroform, 10% acetic acid) for 20 min, followed by a 10min ethanol wash. Other applications not tested. Optimal dilutions are dependent on conditions and should be determined by the user.
