Home Antibody All anti-FAP antibodies
|This affinity purified antibody was prepared from whole rabbit serum produced by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide corresponding to an internal region of mouse FAP protein.|
||ELISA: 1:100,000, WB: 1:500 to 1:2,000
|0.02 M Potassium Phosphate, 0.15 M Sodium Chloride, pH 7.2|
|This antibody is suitable for Cancer, Immunology and Nuclear Signaling research. Fibroblast Activation Protein (FAP) is expressed in the stroma of sites that are undergoing wound healing. In addition, it has recently been reported that FAP is expressed in the stroma of sites of metastatic disease. Inhibition of FAP may lead to a dramatic decrease in the number of metastatic osteosarcoma lung nodules. FAP exists as an inactive monomer and when activated forms homodimers or heterodimers with DPP4. Multiple isoforms of FAP are reported as alternative splicing products from a common gene.

Western blot using affinity purified anti-FAP antibody shows detection of FAP protein in whole cell lysates from FAP expressing HEK cells (lane 4) but not control HEK cells (lane 3). Specific band staining is blocked when the primary antibody is pre-incubated with immunizing peptide (lanes 1 and 2 respectively). The band at ~90 kDa, indicated by the arrowhead, corresponds to the expected molecular weight of transfected FAP. Primary antibody was used at 1:1,000.
