Urokinase (PLAU) Antibody (C-term)

Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - Urokinase (PLAU) Antibody (C-term) AP8161B
    Western blot analysis of anti-PLAU Pab (Cat. #AP8161b) in CEM cell line lysate (35ug/lane). PLAU(arrow) was detected using the purified Pab
  • IHC-P - Urokinase (PLAU) Antibody (C-term) AP8161B
    Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human prostata carcinoma tissue reacted with PLAU antibody (C-term ), which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
  • IF - Urokinase (PLAU) Antibody (C-term) AP8161B
    Confocal immunofluorescent analysis of Urokinase (PLAU) Antibody (C-term)(Cat#AP8161b) with A2058 cell followed by Alexa Fluor 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit lgG (green). DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclear (blue).
  • FC - Urokinase (PLAU) Antibody (C-term) AP8161B
    Urokinase (PLAU) Antibody (C-term) (Cat. #AP8161a) flow cytometric analysis of A2058 cells (right histogram) compared to a negative control cell (left histogram).FITC-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.

PLAU, a member of the peptidase family S1, is a potent plasminogen activator and is clinically used for therapy of thrombolytic disorders. PLAU specifically cleaves the Arg-|-Val bond in plasminogen to form plasmin. The protein is found in high and low molecular mass forms. Each consists of two chains, A and B. The high molecular mass form contains a long chain A. Cleavage occurs after residue 155 in the low molecular mass form to yield a short A1 chain. The protein is used in Pulmonary Embolism (PE) to initiates fibrinolysis. Structurally, PLAU contains 1 EGF-like domain and 1 kringle domain.
