General description

Plasminogen activator, urokinase receptor (PLAUR) is a well-characterized receptor for matrix-degrading proteases. It is encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 19q13.31.


peptide corresponding to a sequence at the C-terminus of human PLAUR/uPAR.


Monoclonal Anti-PLAUR/uPAR antibody produced in mouse has been used in Western blotting (WB).

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Plasminogen activator, urokinase receptor (PLAUR) plays a vital role in tumor cell invasion, angiogenesis and metastasis. It acts as a key regulator of cell-surface plasminogen activator. It is implicated in various normal and pathological processes. Elevated expression of the gene has been observed in various types of cancers, including head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Thus, it is considered as an potent biomarker for targeted imaging or therapy. Upregulated expression of PLAUR leads to the progression of kidney disease in children.
