Product information "Anti-Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase Receptor Type M (PTPRM, PTPu, PTPRu, and RPTPu)"
Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase, receptor type M (PTPRM), also called PTPµ, PTPRµ, and RPTPµ, is expressed at highest levels in pulmonary vascular epithelia, where interactions with cadhedrins are believed to be important in regulating barrier permeability. The MAM and Fibronectin III (FNIII) domains on the extracellular side of PTPRM bind between cells, affecting adhesion and contact inhibition. Culturing cells to high density concentrates PTPRM at sites of tight contact and induces proteolytic cleavage of the 100kD extracellular domain. Applications: Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blotting. Other applications not tested. Recommended Dilution: Western Blotting: 1ug/mL, Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher. Storage and Stability: May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and add glycerol (40-50%). Freeze at -20°C or colder. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
