|Other Names||Microfibrillar-associated protein 5, MFAP-5, MP25, Microfibril-associated glycoprotein 2, MAGP-2, MFAP5, MAGP2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7319b was selected from the C-term region of human MFAP5. 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||May play a role in hematopoiesis. In the cardiovascular system, could regulate growth factors or participate in cell signaling in maintaining large vessel integrity (By similarity). Component of the elastin-associated microfibrils (PubMed:8557636).|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix|

MFAP5 is a 25-kD microfibril-associated glycoprotein which is rich in serine and threonine residues. The protein lacks a hydrophobic carboxyl terminus and proline-, glutamine-, and tyrosine-rich regions, which are characteristics of a related 31-kDa microfibril-associated glycoprotein (MFAP2). The close similarity between these two proteins is confined to a central region of 60 aa where precise alignment of 7 cysteine residues occurs. The structural differences suggest that this protein has some functions that are distinct from those of MFAP2.
