Transmembrane protein 119 (TMEM119) is encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 12q23.3. The encoded protein belongs to the transmembrane protein family. TMEM119 has an O-glycosylated N-terminal region.
transmembrane protein 119 recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)
Anti-TMEM119 antibody produced in rabbit has been used in immunohistochemistry.
Transmembrane protein 119 (TMEM119) acts as an osteoinductive factor and facilitates proliferation, migration and invasion of osteosarcoma cells.(28} It is a critical molecule acting downstream of the parathyroid hormone (PTH) and similar to mothers against decapentaplegic-3 (Smad3) signaling pathways in osteoblasts. TMEM119 is considered to be a potential microglial marker that differentiates resident microglia from blood-derived macrophages in the human brain. Mutation in the gene is associated with the development of osteosarcoma.
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.
Solution in phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide.
