Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
ALK‑7 in Human Pancreas. ALK-7 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human pancreas using Mouse Anti-Human ALK-7 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7749) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counter-stained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to islet cells.

Activin receptor-like kinase 7 (ALK-7), also known as Activin R1C (gene name ACVR1C), is a glycosylated 58 kDa type I receptor in the superfamily of TGF-beta serine/threonine kinase receptors. It associates with type II receptors to form a signaling complex that responds to the ligands Activin AB, and Activin B, GDF3, and Nodal. ALK-7 plays a role in regulating energy balance by inhibiting insulin secretion and inducing pancreatic beta cell apoptosis. It is expressed in adipose tissue but downregulated in obesity. ALK-7 is also expressed in pituitary gonadotropic cells and in pre-eclamptic placenta. It induces the apoptosis of trophoblasts as well as ovarian granulosa and epithelial cells. Within the extracellular domain, human ALK-7 shares 95% and 91% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with mouse and rat ALK-7, respectively. Alternate splicing of human ALK-7 generates additional isoforms with either a 50 aa N-terminal truncation or with deletions of 79 aa or 157 aa that encompass the transmembrane segment.
