|Application ||FC, WB|
|Calculated MW||H=63,64;M=63;Rat=63 KDa|
|Antigen Region||445-473 aa|
|Other Names||GPI; Glucose-6-phosphate isomerase; Autocrine motility factor; Neuroleukin; Phosphoglucose isomerase; Phosphohexose isomerase; Sperm antigen 36|
|Target/Specificity||This GPI antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 445-473 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human GPI.|
|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||GPI Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Besides it's role as a glycolytic enzyme, mammalian GPI can function as a tumor-secreted cytokine and an angiogenic factor (AMF) that stimulates endothelial cell motility. GPI is also a neurotrophic factor (Neuroleukin) for spinal and sensory neurons.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Secreted|

GPI belongs to the GPI family whose members encode multifunctional phosphoglucose isomerase proteins involved in energy pathways. The protein encoded by this gene is a dimeric enzyme that catalyzes the reversible isomerization of glucose-6-phosphate and fructose-6-phosphate. The protein functions in different capacities inside and outside the cell. In the cytoplasm, the gene product is involved in glycolysis and gluconeogenesis, while outside the cell it functions as a neurotrophic factor for spinal and sensory neurons. Defects in this gene are the cause of nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia and a severe enzyme deficiency can be associated with hydrops fetalis, immediate neonatal death and neurological impairment.
