|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_077277.1, NP_001034974.1|
|Calculated MW||54568 Da|
|Antigen Region||237-265 aa|
|Other Names||Fukutin-related protein, 2---, FKRP|
|Target/Specificity||This FKRP antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 237-265 amino acids from the Central region of human FKRP.|
|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||FKRP Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transferase involved in the biosynthesis of the phosphorylated O-mannosyl trisaccharide (N-acetylgalactosamine- beta-3-N-acetylglucosamine-beta-4-(phosphate-6-)mannose), a carbohydrate structure present in alpha-dystroglycan (DAG1), which is required for binding laminin G-like domain-containing extracellular proteins with high affinity.|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein. Secreted. Cell membrane, sarcolemma. Rough endoplasmic reticulum. Note=According to some studies the N- terminal hydrophobic domain is cleaved after translocation to the Golgi apparatus and the protein is secreted. Localization at the cell membrane may require the presence of dystroglycan. At the Golgi apparatus localizes to the middle-to-trans-cisternae, as assessed by MG160 colocalization. Detected in rough endoplasmic reticulum in myocytes. In general, mutants associated with severe clinical phenotypes are retained within the endoplasmic reticulum|
|Tissue Location||Expressed predominantly in skeletal muscle, placenta, and heart and relatively weakly in brain, lung, liver kidney and pancreas|

This gene encodes a protein which is targeted to the medial Golgi apparatus and is necessary for posttranslational modification of dystroglycan. Mutations in this gene have been associated with congenital muscular dystrophy, mental retardation, and cerebellar cysts. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants of this gene have been described, but the full-length nature of some of these variants has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq].
