|Other Names||Uroplakin-3a, UP3a, Uroplakin III, UPIII, UPK3A, UPK3|
|Format||200ug/ml of Ab purified from rabbit anti-serum by Protein A. Prepared in 10mM PBS with 0.05% BSA & 0.05% azide. Also available WITHOUT BSA at 1.0mg/ml.|
|Storage||Store at 2 to 8°C.Antibody is stable for 24 months.|
|Precautions||Uroplakin 3A (Bladder Carcinoma Marker) Antibody - Without BSA is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of the asymmetric unit membrane (AUM); a highly specialized biomembrane elaborated by terminally differentiated urothelial cells. May play an important role in AUM-cytoskeleton interaction in terminally differentiated urothelial cells. It also contributes to the formation of urothelial glycocalyx which may play an important role in preventing bacterial adherence (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Note=Heterodimer formation with UPK1B is a prerequisite to exit out of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER).|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in ureter.|

Uroplakin-3A (UPK3A) is a component of the asymmetric unit membrane (AUM). It is a highly specialized bio-membrane made by terminally differentiated urothelial cells. The protein may play an important role in AUM-cytoskeleton interaction in terminally differentiated urothelial cells. UPK3A also contributes to the formation of urothelial glycocalyx, which may play an important role in preventing bacterial adherence through FimH bacterial protein binding leading to bladder infection. UPK3A has been shown as a helpful marker for the detection of bladder cancer.
