Detection of Human and Mouse HSP47 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line, HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line, A549 human lung carcinoma cell line, and NIH‑3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse HSP47 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB9166) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for HSP47 at approximately 47 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
HSP47 in Human Breast Cancer Tissue. HSP47 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human normal breast (left) and breast cancer tissue (right) using Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse HSP47 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB9166) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cancer cell cytoplasm. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Heat Shock Protein 47 (HSP47), also known as Serpin-H1/CBP1/CBP2, is localized to endoplasmic reticulum (ER),
where it is a collagen-specific molecular chaperone. In the ER, HSP47 interacts with and
stabilizes correctly-folded procollagen. Nucleotide polymorphisms may be
associated with preterm birth and Osteogenesis Imperfecta type X. Serpin-H1 is up-regulated in several cancers
including squamous cell carcinoma, breast and prostate carcinomas. Expression in tumors drives malignant growth
and invasion by enhancing deposition of extracellular matrix proteins.
