|Calculated MW||45538 Da|
|Application & Usage||The peptide is used for blocking the antibody activity of FIAF. It usually blocks the antibody activity completely in Western blot analysis by incubating the peptide with equal volume of antibody for 30-60 minutes at 37°C.|
|Other Names||Angiopoietin-related protein 4, 425O18-1, Angiopoietin-like protein 4, Fasting-induced adipose factor, Hepatic fibrinogen/angiopoietin-related protein, HFARP, Secreted protein Bk89, Angptl4, Farp, Fiaf, Ng27|
|Formulation||50 µ (0.5 mg/ml) in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 50% glycerol, 1% BSA and 0.02% thimerosal.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||FIAF Blocking Peptide is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||Farp, Fiaf, Ng27|
|Function||Protein with hypoxia-induced expression in endothelial cells. May act as a regulator of angiogenesis and modulate tumorigenesis. Inhibits proliferation, migration, and tubule formation of endothelial cells and reduces vascular leakage. May exert a protective function on endothelial cells through an endocrine action. It is directly involved in regulating glucose homeostasis, lipid metabolism, and insulin sensitivity (By similarity). In response to hypoxia, the unprocessed form of the protein accumulates in the subendothelial extracellular matrix (ECM). The matrix-associated and immobilized unprocessed form limits the formation of actin stress fibers and focal contacts in the adhering endothelial cells and inhibits their adhesion. It also decreases motility of endothelial cells and inhibits the sprouting and tube formation.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted. Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix. Note=The unprocessed form interacts with the extracellular matrix. This may constitute a dynamic reservoir, a regulatory mechanism of the bioavailability of ANGPTL4|
|Tissue Location||Predominantly expressed in adipose tissue and is strongly up-regulated by fasting in white adipose tissue and liver.|
