Data Examples

Western Blot Detection  of Human EPCR by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human EPCR by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human skin tissue, human placenta tissue, and HUVEC human umbilical vein endothelial cells. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.25 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human EPCR Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2245) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF017). A specific band was detected for EPCR at approximately 40-45 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Immunohistochemistry EPCR in Human Liver. View Larger

EPCR in Human Liver. EPCR was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human liver using 1.7 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human EPCR Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2245) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Background: EPCR

EPCR is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein in the CD1/MHC family. It is expressed most strongly in the endothelial cells of arteries and veins in heart and lung. Membrane bound EPCR is released by metalloproteolytic cleavage to generate the soluble receptor. Protein C is a vitamin K-dependent serine protease that plays a major role in blood coagulation. Binding of Protein C to EPCR leads to the proteolytic activation of PAR1 (protease-activated receptor 1) on endothelial cells and subsequent up-regulation of Protein C-induced genes.  The extracellular domain of human and mouse EPCR shares approximately 61% amino acid sequence homology.
