|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_008883, 49619237|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||29643 Da|
|Application Notes||UPK1B antibody can be used for detection of UPK1B by Western blot at 0.5 - 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||UPK1B; At least two isoforms of UPK1B are known to exist; this antibody will recognize both isoforms. UPK1B antibody is predicted to not cross-react with other tetraspanin protein family members.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||UPK1B 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||UPK1B Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of the asymmetric unit membrane (AUM); a highly specialized biomembrane elaborated by terminally differentiated urothelial cells. May play an important role in normal bladder epithelial physiology, possibly in regulating membrane permeability of superficial umbrella cells or in stabilizing the apical membrane through AUM/cytoskeletal interactions (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.|
|Tissue Location||Bladder epithelium.|

UPK1B Antibody: Uroplakin-1B (UPK1B) is a member of the transmembrane 4 superfamily, also known as the tetraspanin family. Most of these members are cell-surface proteins that are characterized by the presence of four hydrophobic domains. The proteins mediate signal transduction events that play a role in the regulation of cell development, activation, growth and motility. UPK1B is found in the asymmetrical unit membrane (AUM) where it can form a complex with other transmembrane 4 superfamily proteins and may play a role in normal bladder epithelial physiology, possibly in regulating membrane permeability of superficial umbrella cells or in stabilizing the apical membrane through AUM/cytoskeletal interactions.
