|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Other Accession||O88496, NP_000812.2|
|Calculated MW||87561 Da|
|Antigen Region||548-578 aa|
|Other Names||Vitamin K-dependent gamma-carboxylase, Gamma-glutamyl carboxylase, Peptidyl-glutamate 4-carboxylase, Vitamin K gamma glutamyl carboxylase, GGCX, GC|
|Target/Specificity||This GGCX antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 548-578 amino acids from the Central region of human GGCX.|
|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||GGCX Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Mediates the vitamin K-dependent carboxylation of glutamate residues to calcium-binding gamma-carboxyglutamate (Gla) residues with the concomitant conversion of the reduced hydroquinone form of vitamin K to vitamin K epoxide.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|

This gene encodes an enzyme which catalyzes the posttranslational modification of vitamin K-dependent protein. Many of these vitamin K-dependent proteins are involved in coagulation so the function of the encoded enzyme is essential for hemostasis. Mutations in this gene are associated with vitamin K-dependent coagulation defect and PXE-like disorder with multiple coagulation factor deficiency. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
