|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||36431 Da|
|Antigen Region||190-219 aa|
|Other Names||Prostasin, 3421-, Channel-activating protease 1, CAP1, Serine protease 8, Prostasin light chain, Prostasin heavy chain, PRSS8|
|Target/Specificity||This PRSS8 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 190-219 amino acids from the Central region of human PRSS8.|
|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||PRSS8 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Possesses a trypsin-like cleavage specificity with a preference for poly-basic substrates. Stimulates epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) activity through activating cleavage of the gamma subunits (SCNN1G).|
|Cellular Location||Prostasin: Cell membrane; Single-pass membrane protein Prostasin heavy chain: Secreted, extracellular space. Note=Found in the seminal fluid. Secreted after cleavage of its C-terminus|
|Tissue Location||Found in prostate, liver, salivary gland, kidney, lung, pancreas, colon, bronchus and renal proximal tubular cells. In the prostate gland it may be synthesized in epithelial cells, secreted into the ducts, and excreted into the seminal fluid|

This gene encodes a trypsinogen, which is a member of the trypsin family of serine proteases. This enzyme is highly expressed in prostate epithelia and is one of several proteolytic enzymes found in seminal fluid. The proprotein is cleaved to produce a light chain and a heavy chain which are associated by a disulfide bond. It is active on peptide linkages involving the carboxyl group of lysine or arginine.
