Product Description specifically for uPK3A recombinant protein

   uPK3A belongs to the uroplakin-3 family. uroplakins (uP) are key components of the urothelium. They are transmembrane proteins that pass the lipid bilayer once (uPII, uPIIIa, and uPIIIb) or four times (uPIa and uPIb; both belonging to the 'tetraspanin' family). All have large luminal/extracellular domains, but only uPIIIa and uPIIIb have significant cytoplasmic portions in their C-termini. uPK3A is a highly specific and moderately sensitive immunohistochemical marker for primary and metastatic urothelial carcinomas. Mutations in this gene may be associated with renal adysplasia Recombinant human uPK3A protein, fused to His-tag at N-terminus, was expressed in E.coli and purified by conventional chromatography, after refolding of the isolated inclusion bodies in a renaturation buffer.

 UniProt Comments for uPK3A    UPK3A: Component of the asymmetric unit membrane (AUM); a highly specialized biomembrane elaborated by terminally differentiated urothelial cells. May play an important role in AUM-cytoskeleton interaction in terminally differentiated urothelial cells. It also contributes to the formation of urothelial glycocalyx which may play an important role in preventing bacterial adherence. Defects in UPK3A are a cause of renal adysplasia (RADYS); also known as renal agenesis or renal aplasia. Renal agenesis refers to the absence of one (unilateral) or both (bilateral) kidneys at birth. Bilateral renal agenesis belongs to a group of perinatally lethal renal diseases, including severe bilateral renal dysplasia, unilateral renal agenesis with contralateral dysplasia and severe obstructive uropathy. Belongs to the uroplakin-3 family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
