|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 52 kDa |
Observed: 47 kDa
|Application Notes||Fibulin 3 antibody can be used for detection of Fibulin 3 by Western blot at 0.5 - 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 20 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||EFEMP1; At least three isoforms of Fibulin 3 are known to exist. This antibody is predicted to not cross-react with other Fibulin proteins.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Fibulin 3 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||Fibulin 3 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Binds EGFR, the EGF receptor, inducing EGFR autophosphorylation and the activation of downstream signaling pathways. May play a role in cell adhesion and migration. May function as a negative regulator of chondrocyte differentiation. In the olfactory epithelium, it may regulate glial cell migration, differentiation and the ability of glial cells to support neuronal neurite outgrowth.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space. Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix Note=Localizes to the lamina propria underneath the olfactory epithelium.|
|Tissue Location||In the eye, associated with photoreceptor outer and inner segment regions, the nerve fiber layer, outer nuclear layer and inner and outer plexiform layers of the retina|

Fibulin 3 Antibody: Fibulin 3, also known as epidermal growth factor (EGF)-containing fibulin-like extracellular matrix protein 1 (EFEMP1), is a member of the fibulin family of extracellular glycoproteins, a group of proteins that are widely distributed and frequently associated with vascular and elastic tissues. The fibulin proteins typically contain a tandem array of EGF-like repeats and a fibulin-type COOH-terminal module. Aberrant accumulation of Fibulin 3 in the endoplasmic reticulum of retinal pigment epithelial cells has been shown to be associated with inherited forms of macular degeneration, but the loss of Fibulin 3 expression does not lead to macular degeneration but rather the appearance of hernias due to a reduction of elastic fibers of fascial connective tissue. Recent experiments have shown that expression of Fibulin 3 promotes tumor growth and may thus be a therapeutic target.
