|Other Names||Secreted frizzled-related protein 5, sFRP-5, Frizzled-related protein 1b, FRP-1b, Secreted apoptosis-related protein 3, SARP-3, SFRP5, FRP1B, SARP3|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6991c was selected from the Center region of human SFRP5. 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||Soluble frizzled-related proteins (sFRPS) function as modulators of Wnt signaling through direct interaction with Wnts. They have a role in regulating cell growth and differentiation in specific cell types. SFRP5 may be involved in determining the polarity of photoreceptor, and perhaps, other cells in the retina.|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and pancreas. Weak expression in heart, liver and muscle.|

Secreted frizzled-related protein 5 (SFRP5) is a member of the SFRP family that contains a cysteine-rich domain homologous to the putative Wnt-binding site of Frizzled proteins. SFRPs act as soluble modulators of Wnt signaling. SFRP5 and SFRP1 may be involved in determining the polarity of photoreceptor cells in the retina.
