Despite its predicted molecular weight, OVGP1 often migrates at a higher molecular weight in SDS-PAGE. A suggested positive control is human placenta lysate.
PA5-20580 can be used with blocking peptide PEP-0700.
Oviductins belong to a family of glycoproteins that have been suggested to play several roles during the early processes of reproduction. OVGP1 is a large carbohydrate-rich, epithelial glycoprotein with numerous O-glycosylation sites within threonine, serine, and proline-rich tandem repeats. The protein is secreted from non-ciliated oviductal epithelial cells and associates with ovulated oocytes, blastomeres, and spermatozoan acrosomal regions. At least two isoforms of OVGP are known to exist.
