|Other Names||SPARC, Basement-membrane protein 40, BM-40, Osteonectin, ON, Secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine, SPARC, ON|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6743b was selected from the C-term region of human SPARC. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Appears to regulate cell growth through interactions with the extracellular matrix and cytokines. Binds calcium and copper, several types of collagen, albumin, thrombospondin, PDGF and cell membranes. There are two calcium binding sites; an acidic domain that binds 5 to 8 Ca(2+) with a low affinity and an EF-hand loop that binds a Ca(2+) ion with a high affinity.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix, basement membrane. Note=In or around the basement membrane|
