|Application ||IHC, IF, FC|
|Other Accession||2335, 203717|
|Isotype||Mouse / IgG1, kappa|
|Calculated MW||220kDa (monomer); 440kDa (dimer)|
|Other Names||Fibronectin, FN, Cold-insoluble globulin, CIG, Anastellin, Ugl-Y1, Ugl-Y2, Ugl-Y3, FN1, FN|
|Storage||Store at 2 to 8°C.Antibody is stable for 24 months.|
|Precautions||Fibronectin (8th Type III Repeat) Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Fibronectins bind cell surfaces and various compounds including collagen, fibrin, heparin, DNA, and actin. Fibronectins are involved in cell adhesion, cell motility, opsonization, wound healing, and maintenance of cell shape. Involved in osteoblast compaction through the fibronectin fibrillogenesis cell-mediated matrix assembly process, essential for osteoblast mineralization. Participates in the regulation of type I collagen deposition by osteoblasts.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix|
|Tissue Location||Plasma FN (soluble dimeric form) is secreted by hepatocytes. Cellular FN (dimeric or cross-linked multimeric forms), made by fibroblasts, epithelial and other cell types, is deposited as fibrils in the extracellular matrix. Ugl-Y1, Ugl-Y2 and Ugl-Y3 are found in urine.|

Epitope of this MAb is located in the 8th type III repeat in the cell-binding region of fibronectin. Fibronectins are disulfide-linked, dimeric glycoproteins of ~440kDa. They possess at least four binding sites for collagen, glycosaminoglycans, transglutaminase, and a cell surface receptor. Fibronectins are involved in cell adhesion, tissue organization, and wound healing. Fibronectins are present in basement membranes, interstitial connective tissue matrix, and blood. Cellular fibronectin is widely distributed in the stroma of many malignant tumors. This MAb is excellent for staining of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues.
