|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 64, 84 kDa |
Observed: 60 kDa
|Application Notes||KIRREL3 antibody can be used for detection of KIRREL3 by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/ml. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||KIRREL3; KIRREL3 antibody is human, mouse and rat reactive. At least two isoforms are known to exist; this antibody will detect both isoforms. KIRREL3 antibody is predicted to not cross-react with other members of the KIRREL protein family.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||KIRREL3 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.|
|Precautions||KIRREL3 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Synaptic adhesion molecule required for the formation of target-specific synapses. Required for formation of target- specific synapses at hippocampal mossy fiber synapses. Required for formation of mossy fiber filopodia, the synaptic structures connecting dentate granule and GABA neurons. Probably acts as a homophilic adhesion molecule that promotes trans-cellular interactions and stabilize mossy fiber filipodia contact and subsequent synapse formation. Required for the coalescence of vomeronasal sensory neuron axons. May be involved in the hematopoietic supportive capacity of stroma cells; the secreted extracellular domain is directly responsible for supporting hematopoietic stem cells.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in fetal and adult brain (PubMed:19012874). Also expressed in kidney, specifically in podocytes of kidney glomeruli (PubMed:12424224). Also expressed in skeletal muscle (PubMed:25488023).|

KIRREL3, also known as nephrin-like protein 2, is a type I transmembrane protein belonging to a family of three podocin interacting proteins and the immunoglobulin superfamily (1). KIRREL3 is involved in the regulation of both glomerular and neural development (2), and more specifically, the nucleogenesis of the pontine nuclei in the developing hindbrain (3). KIRREL3 has also been shown to interact with the synaptic scaffold protein calmodulin-associated serine/threonine kinase (CASK) in neuronal cells (4).
