|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||20194 Da|
|Antigen Region||10-41 aa|
|Other Names||Parathyroid hormone-related protein, PTH-rP, PTHrP, Parathyroid hormone-like protein, PLP, PTHrP[1-36], PTHrP[38-94], Osteostatin, PTHrP[107-139], PTHLH, PTHRP|
|Target/Specificity||This PTHLH antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 10-41 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human PTHLH.|
|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||PTHLH Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Neuroendocrine peptide which is a critical regulator of cellular and organ growth, development, migration, differentiation and survival and of epithelial calcium ion transport. Regulates endochondral bone development and epithelial-mesenchymal interactions during the formation of the mammary glands and teeth. Required for skeletal homeostasis. Promotes mammary mesenchyme differentiation and bud outgrowth by modulating mesenchymal cell responsiveness to BMPs. Upregulates BMPR1A expression in the mammary mesenchyme and this increases the sensitivity of these cells to BMPs and allows them to respond to BMP4 in a paracrine and/or autocrine fashion. BMP4 signaling in the mesenchyme, in turn, triggers epithelial outgrowth and augments MSX2 expression, which causes the mammary mesenchyme to inhibit hair follicle formation within the nipple sheath (By similarity). Promotes colon cancer cell migration and invasion in an integrin alpha-6/beta-1- dependent manner through activation of Rac1.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Secreted.|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous. Also expressed in the mammary gland|

PTHLH is a member of the parathyroid hormone family. This hormone regulates endochondral bone development and epithelial-mesenchymal interactions during the formation of the mammary glands and teeth. This hormone is involved in lactation possibly by regulating the mobilization and transfer of calcium to the milk. The receptor of this hormone, PTHR1, is responsible for most cases of humoral hypercalcemia of malignancy.
