Detection of Human Melanotransferrin/CD228 by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of SK‑Mel‑28 human malignant melanoma cell line and Hs 294T human melanoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Melanotransferrin/CD228 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8175) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for Melanotransferrin/CD228 at approximately 90-95 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Detection of Human Melanotransferrin/CD228 by Simple WesternTM.
Simple Western lane view shows lysates of SK‑Mel‑28 human malignant melanoma cell line, loaded at 0.5 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for Melanotransferrin/CD228 at approximately 109 kDa (as indicated) using 10 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Melanotransferrin/CD228 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8175). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the 12-230 kDa separation system.

Melanotransferrin, also known as MTF, CD228, melanoma-associated antigen p97, MAP97 and MFI2, is a 90-97 kDa sialoglycoprotein member of the transferrin family. Unlike other transferrins, which are secreted, MTF is usually found tethered to the cell membrane by a glycosyl phosphatidyl inositol anchor, with only small amounts of soluble protein detected. MTF is highly expressed on melanoma cells, and at lower levels in salivary gland, pancreas, kidney and testis. Like other transferrins, MTF is an iron-binding protein, and may play roles in cellular proliferation, tumorigenesis, metastasis and migration. Full-length human, mouse and rat MTF is 738 amino acids (aa). Over aa 1-711, human MTF shares 85 and 86% aa identity with mouse and rat MTF, respectively.
