- CITATIONS: 1
|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||103134 Da|
|Antigen Region||722-750 aa|
|Other Names||Neuropilin-1, Vascular endothelial cell growth factor 165 receptor, CD304, NRP1, NRP, VEGF165R|
|Target/Specificity||This NRP1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 722-750 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human NRP1.|
|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||NRP1 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||The membrane-bound isoform 1 is a receptor involved in the development of the cardiovascular system, in angiogenesis, in the formation of certain neuronal circuits and in organogenesis outside the nervous system. It mediates the chemorepulsant activity of semaphorins. It binds to semaphorin 3A, The PLGF-2 isoform of PGF, The VEGF-165 isoform of VEGF and VEGF-B. Coexpression with KDR results in increased VEGF-165 binding to KDR as well as increased chemotaxis. It may regulate VEGF-induced angiogenesis.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||The expression of isoforms 1 and 2 does not seem to overlap. Isoform 1 is expressed by the blood vessels of different tissues. In the developing embryo it is found predominantly in the nervous system. In adult tissues, it is highly expressed in heart and placenta; moderately in lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas; and low in adult brain Isoform 2 is found in liver hepatocytes, kidney distal and proximal tubules|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
NRP1 is a membrane-bound coreceptor to a tyrosine kinase receptor for both vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF; MIM 192240) and semaphorin (see SEMA3A; MIM 603961) family members. NRP1 plays versatile roles in angiogenesis, axon guidance, cell survival, migration, and invasion.
