|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||90000 Da|
|Antigen Region||85-114 aa|
|Other Names||Transmembrane protease serine 6, 3421-, Matriptase-2, TMPRSS6|
|Target/Specificity||This TMPRSS6 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 85-114 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human TMPRSS6.|
|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||TMPRSS6 Antibody(N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Serine protease which hydrolyzes a range of proteins including type I collagen, fibronectin and fibrinogen. Can also activate urokinase-type plasminogen activator with low efficiency. May play a specialized role in matrix remodeling processes in liver. Through the cleavage of HFE2, a regulator of the expression of the iron absorption-regulating hormone hepicidin/HAMP, plays a role in iron homeostasis.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single- pass type II membrane protein. Note=The processed, activated two- chains form is released in the extracellular space|
|Tissue Location||Liver specific..|
