Detects human Transglutaminase 7/TGM7 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, approximately 5% cross‑reactivity with recombinant human (rh) Transglutaminase 3 is observed, and less than 2% cross-reactivity with rhTransglutaminase 2, rhTransglutaminase 4, and recombinant mouse Transglutaminase 2 is observed.
Polyclonal Sheep IgG
S. frugiperda insect ovarian cell line Sf 21-derived recombinant human Transglutaminase 7/TGM7
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
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 Transglutaminase 7/TGM7 by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of human thyroid tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human Transglutaminase 7/TGM7 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5426) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Transglutaminase 7/TGM7 at approximately XXX kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

Background: Transglutaminase 7/TGM7
Transglutaminase 7 (TG7), encoded by the TGM7 gene, is also known as protein-glutamine-g-glutamyltransferase Z (Tgase Z). It belongs to the family of transglutaminases that catalyze the posttranslational modification of proteins via calcium dependent cross-linking reactions. TG7 is ubiquitously expressed in humans. Members of the TGM family have been implicated in a variety of human diseases including neurodegenerative diseases, celiac disease, lamellar ichthyosis, bleeding disorders, cataract formation, atherosclerosis, and others.
