|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Other Accession||NP_001161066.1, NP_000299.2, NP_001121167.1|
|Calculated MW||54466 Da|
|Antigen Region||18-45 aa|
|Other Names||Lysosomal protective protein, Carboxypeptidase C, Carboxypeptidase L, Cathepsin A, Protective protein cathepsin A, PPCA, Protective protein for beta-galactosidase, Lysosomal protective protein 32 kDa chain, Lysosomal protective protein 20 kDa chain, CTSA, PPGB|
|Target/Specificity||This CTSA antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 18-45 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human CTSA.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CTSA Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Protective protein appears to be essential for both the activity of beta-galactosidase and neuraminidase, it associates with these enzymes and exerts a protective function necessary for their stability and activity. This protein is also a carboxypeptidase and can deamidate tachykinins.|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
CTSA encodes a glycoprotein which associates with lysosomal enzymes beta-galactosidase and neuraminidase to form a complex of high molecular weight multimers. The formation of this complex provides a protective role for stability and activity. Deficiencies in this gene are linked to multiple forms of galactosialidosis.
