MA5-17159 targets PSAP in FACS, ICC, IHC, IF and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-17159 immunogen is purified recombinant fragment of human PSAP (amino acids: 325-524 ) expressed in E. Coli.
MA5-17159 detects PSAP which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 58.1kDa.
This gene encodes a highly conserved glycoprotein which is a precursor for 4 cleavage products: saposins A, B, C, and D. Each domain of the precursor protein is approximately 80 amino acid residues long with nearly identical placement of cysteine residues and glycosylation sites. Saposins A-D localize primarily to the lysosomal compartment where they facilitate the catabolism of glycosphingolipids with short oligosaccharide groups. The precursor protein exists both as a secretory protein and as an integral membrane protein and has neurotrophic activities. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Gaucher disease, Tay-Sachs disease, and metachromatic leukodystrophy. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms.
