  • IHC image of CSB-PA018672LA01HU diluted at 1:200 and staining in paraffin-embedded human liver tissue performed on a Leica BondTM system. After dewaxing and hydration, antigen retrieval was mediated by high pressure in a citrate buffer (pH 6.0). Section was blocked with 10% normal goat serum 30min at RT. Then primary antibody (1% BSA) was incubated at 4°C overnight. The primary is detected by a Goat anti-rabbit polymer IgG labeled by HRP and visualized using 0.05% DAB.

Target Background

Plays a role in boundary lubrication within articulating joints. Prevents protein deposition onto cartilage from synovial fluid by controlling adhesion-dependent synovial growth and inhibiting the adhesion of synovial cells to the cartilage surface.; Isoform F plays a role as a growth factor acting on the primitive cells of both hematopoietic and endothelial cell lineages.

  6. Double knockdown of PRG4 and IL-24 did not inhibit myxoid liposarcoma (MLS)- cell growth, and single knockdown of PRG4 remarkably increased IL-24 expression. These results suggest that the growth inhibitory effect of PRG4 knockdown is caused by induction of IL-24 expression, and PRG4 may contribute to maintain MLS cell growth through repression of IL-24 expression.
