|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_055235, 27121|
|Predicted||Mouse, Rat, Pig, Dog|
|Calculated MW||24876 Da|
|Other Names||Dickkopf-related protein 4, Dickkopf-4, Dkk-4, hDkk-4, Dickkopf-related protein 4 short form, DKK4|
|Format||0.5 mg IgG/ml in Tris saline (20mM Tris pH7.3, 150mM NaCl), 0.02% sodium azide, with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-DKK4 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Antagonizes canonical Wnt signaling by inhibiting LRP5/6 interaction with Wnt and by forming a ternary complex with the transmembrane protein KREMEN that promotes internalization of LRP5/6. DKKs play an important role in vertebrate development, where they locally inhibit Wnt regulated processes such as antero- posterior axial patterning, limb development, somitogenesis and eye formation. In the adult, Dkks are implicated in bone formation and bone disease, cancer and Alzheimer disease (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in cerebellum, T-cells, esophagus and lung|

This gene encodes a protein that is a member of the dickkopf family. The secreted protein contains two cysteine rich regions and is involved in embryonic development through its interactions with the Wnt signaling pathway. Activity of this protein is modulated by binding to the Wnt co-receptor and the co-factor kremen 2.
