Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of Human ITIH4 antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human ITIH4 by Western Blot. Western blot shows human plasma. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human ITIH4 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF8157) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for ITIH4 at approximately 120 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: ITIH4

The inter-alpha -trypsin inhibitor heavy chain (ITIH4), also known as IHRP (inter-alpha -trypsin heavy chain-related protein), PK-120 (plasma kallikrein-sensitive glycoprotein 120), or Gp120 (glycoprotein 120), is a secreted, 120 kDa, 930 amino acid (aa), N-glycosylated Type II acute phase protein. It is upregulated in response to trauma such as ischemic stroke or myocardial infarction, and functions as a trypsin inhibitor. It is activated by Kallikrein by cleavage between aa 688-689, creating 100 kDa and 35 kDa portions. Mature human ITIH4 shares 66% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat ITIH4. Human isoforms lacking aa 621-650 (914, 900 and 845 aa forms), aa 727-765 and 851-866 (845 aa) and having 14 aa inserted after aa 727 (914 aa) have been described. Proteolytic cleavage by plasma kallikrein produces a 100 kDa fragment that is further processed to 70 kDa, and 35 kDa fragments. An O-glycosylated form is reported in urine, but not in plasma.
