|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||P61556, NP_997465.1|
|Calculated MW||59523 Da|
|Antigen Region||79-107 aa|
|Other Names||Syncytin-2, Endogenous retrovirus group FRD member 1, Envelope polyprotein, HERV-FRD, HERV-FRD_6p241 provirus ancestral Env polyprotein, Surface protein, SU, Transmembrane protein, TM, ERVFRD-1, ERVFRDE1|
|Target/Specificity||This HERV-FRD antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 79-107 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human HERV-FRD.|
|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||HERV-FRD Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||This endogenous retroviral envelope protein has retained its original fusogenic properties and participates in trophoblast fusion and the formation of a syncytium during placenta morphogenesis. The interaction with MFSD2A is apparently important for this process (PubMed:18988732).|
|Tissue Location||Expressed at higher level in placenta. Expressed at lower level in adrenal, bone marrow, brain, breast, colon, kidney, lung, ovary, peripheral blood lymphocytes, prostate, skin, spleen, testis, thymus, thyroid, trachea|

Human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) make up approximately 8% of the human genome. Although most HERVs are nonfunctional, the HERV-W (ERVWE1; MIM 604659) and HERV-FRD envelope (env) proteins can induce cell-cell fusion when expressed in cells possessing appropriate receptors (Blaise et al., 2003 [PubMed 14557543]).
