Description

General description

MFAP5 (microfibrillar associated protein 5), also known as MAGP-2 (microfibril-associated glycoprotein 2) is a firbillin-interacting component of the ECM (extracellular matrix). It is found in elastin-associated or isolated microfibrills. MAGP1 and MAG2 form a family of small extracellular matrix microfibril-associated proteins.

Immunogen

Microfibrillar-associated protein 5 precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Application

Anti-MFAP5 antibody produced in rabbit, a Prestige Antibody, is developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project (www.proteinatlas.org). Each antibody is tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues. These images can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. The antibodies are also tested using immunofluorescence and western blotting. To view these protocols and other useful information about Prestige Antibodies and the HPA, visit sigma.com/prestige.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

Biochem/physiol Actions

MFAP5 (microfibrillar associated protein 5) interacts with multiple microfibrillar components, including fibrillin-1, fibrillin-2, fibulin-1, and tropoelastine, and thus participates in the physiology of ECM (extracellular matrix). Loss-of-function mutations in this gene lead to matrix aberration, which underlies the pathogenesis of familial thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections. It is a marker of chondrocytes and distinguishes them from synovial cells. In endothelial cells, it acts as an antagonist of Notch signaling, thus, facilitating angiogenic cell spouting. MFAP5 protein influences the metastasis and invasion in ovarian cancer, which is mediated by FAK (focal adhesion kinase)/CREB (cAMP response element binding protein)/TNNC1 (troponin C Type 1) signaling. This protein also serves as a marker for poor prognosis in ovarian cancer.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
• IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
• Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.
• Validated for multiple commonly used applications such as IHC (Immunohistochemistry), IF (Immunofluorescence), and WB (Western Blot)
