Data Examples

Western Blot Detection of Human Glypican 3 antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human Glypican 3 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human Glypican 3 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2119) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Glypican 3 at approximately 75 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Immunocytochemistry Glypican 3 antibody in HepG2 Human Cell Line by Immunocytochemistry (ICC). View Larger

Glypican 3 in HepG2 Human Cell Line. Glypican 3 was detected in immersion fixed HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line using Sheep Anti-Human Glypican 3 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2119) at 1.7 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL010) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm and cell membranes. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Glypican 3 in Human Breast. Glypican 3 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human breast using 5 µg/mL Sheep Anti-Human Glypican 3 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2119) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Sheep HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS019) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Immunohistochemistry Glypican 3 antibody in Human Liver Cancer Tissue by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P). View Larger

Glypican 3 in Human Liver Cancer Tissue. Glypican 3 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human liver cancer tissue using Sheep Anti-Human Glypican 3 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2119) at 10 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Sheep HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS019) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

Human Glypican 3 ELISA Standard Curve. Recombinant Human Glypican 3 protein was serially diluted 2-fold and captured by Mouse Anti-Human Glypican 3 Monoclonal Antibody (MAB21191) coated on a Clear Polystyrene Microplate (DY990). Sheep Anti-Human Glypican 3 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2119) was biotinylated and incubated with the protein captured on the plate. Detection of the standard curve was achieved by incubating Streptavidin-HRP (DY998) followed by Substrate Solution (DY999) and stopping the enzymatic reaction with Stop Solution (DY994).

Background: Glypican 3

Glypicans (GPC) are a family of heparan sulfate proteoglycans that are attached to the cell surface by a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor. Six members of this family have been identified in mammals (GPC1-GPC6). All glypican core proteins contain an N-terminal signal peptide, a large globular cysteine-rich domain (CRD) with 14 invariant cysteine residues, a stalk-like region containing the heparan sulfate attachment sites, and a C-terminal GPI attachment site. While glypican proteins do not share strong amino acid sequence identity (they range from 17-63%), the conserved cysteine residues in their CRDs suggests similarity in their three‑dimensional structure (1, 2).

Mutations in GPC3 cause a rare disorder in humans, Simpson-Golabi-Behmel Syndrome, which is characterized by pre and postnatal overgrowth of multiple tissues and organs and an increased risk for developing embryonic tumors (3). These features are also present in the mouse knock-out of GPC3 indicating that GPC3 regulates cell survival and inhibits cell proliferation during development (4). Glypican 3 has been implicated in regulating many different signaling pathways including: IGF, FGF, BMP, and Wnt. An endoproteolytic processing of GPC3 by proprotein convertases is required for the modulation of Wnt signaling (5). Direct interaction with FGF-basic has been observed and is mediated by the heparan sulfate chains (6).
