Human Ly6K Antibody Summary
Accession # Q17RY6
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.
Detection of Human Ly6K by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human testis tissue. PVDF Membrane was probed with 0.25 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human Ly6K Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6648) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). Specific bands were detected for Ly6K at approximately 25-27 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Ly6K in Human Lung Cancer Tissue. Ly6K was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human lung cancer tissue using Sheep Anti-Human Ly6K Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6648) at 3 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-Sheep HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS019) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm and plasma membrane of cancer cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Ly6K (Lymphocyte antigen 6 locus K; also CO16) is a 26-27 kDa member of the Ly-6 antigen family of molecules. It has restricted expression, being described in testis and skin. Ly6K is found in/on carcinomas, and is known to circulate in normal and tumor-patient blood. Mature human Ly6K is a 121 amino acid (aa) GPI-linked (presumed) glycoprotein. It is synthesized as a 165 aa preproprecursor that contains a 17 aa signal sequence, a 121 aa mature region (aa 18-138), and a 27 aa C‑terminal propeptide. There are two potential splice variants, one that shows a 48 aa substitution, and another that shows a 33 aa substitution for aa 73-165. It is not clear if mouse Ly6K is a true molecular ortholog of human Ly6K. In any event, over aa 18-138, human Ly6K shares 39% aa identity with mouse Ly6K.
