|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-Human Activin betaC-subunit antibody, clone betaC clone 1 recognizes the BetaC-subunit of Activin (BetaC-activin), a member of the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) superfamily and one of a group of proteins which regulate growth and differentiation in a range of cells and tissues, via both autocrine and paracrine pathways. Activins were originally characterised by the formation of specific homo- and heterodimers of activin BetaA- or BetaB-subunits, but additional subunits of activin have since been identified including BetaC, BetaD and BetaE. BetaC-activin, expressed in the liver, prostrate, ovary and testis, has been shown to exhibit both growth promoting and inhibitory properties, and evidence suggests that BetaC-activin can form BetaC homodimers and also heterodimers with BetaA (putative activin AC) and BetaB (putative activin BC). Clone betaC clone 1 has been shown to recognize both monomeric and dimeric BetaC-activin and does not cross react with BetaAf, BetaB or BetaE.|
