Bulk anti-Hepsin In Vivo Antibody – Low Endotoxin (2D5-1.9)
ichorbio’s anti-Hepsin In Vivo Antibody – Low Endotoxin (2D5-1.9) is manufactured in a cGMP compliant, ISO Quality Standard 9001:2015 facility. ichorbio’s low endotoxin antibodies have half the endotoxin of comparable antibodies from our competitors at less than 1.0 EU/mg. If ichorbio’s low endotoxin antibodies are not low enough we also offer ultra low endotoxin antibodies which have even less endotoxin (<0.75EU/mg) at an even higher purity (98% versus 95%). ichorbio: the best antibodies for in vivo research.
Mouse IgG2a κ
Serine protease hepsin, hpn
Clone 2D5 recognizes Human hepsin. It binds to a separate epitope than clone 3H10.1. These clones do not interfere with one another.
This monoclonal antibody was purified using multi-step affinity chromatography methods such as Protein A or G depending on the species and isotype.
Hepsin is expressed on the surface of epithelial cells including the liver, kidney, prostate, and thyroid in human tissues.
Hepsin is a type II transmembrane serine protease (TTSP) expressed on the surface of epithelial cells including the liver, kidney, prostate, and thyroid in human tissues. The physiological function of hepsin is unclear, although, In vitro studies have shown that hepsin activates blood clotting factors VII, XII, and IX, pro-urokinase (pro-uPA), and pro-hepatocyte growth factor (pro-HGF). The over-expression of hepsin has been implicated in several types of cancer, especially ovarian and prostate, which makes it an attractive diagnostic marker for cancers. Most notably, hepsin has been identified as one of the most highly induced genes in prostate cancer, and this over-expression is correlated with the cancer progression and metastasis. Furthermore anti-hepsin antibodies have been shown to inhibit the invasion of human prostate cancer cells.
