TFF3 in Human Colon. TFF3 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human colon using 25 µg/mL Human TFF3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4407) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific labeling was localized to the cytoplasm of goblet cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Trefoil Factor 3 (TFF3) is one of three trefoil peptides secreted by epithelial cells that line mucus membranes. Trefoils contribute to protection and repair of the gastrointestinal tract. TFF3 is secreted by mucus-producing goblet cells in the large and small intestines and lower respiratory tract. It is mainly active as a disulfide-linked homodimer. The mature 59 aa, 6.5 kDa human TFF3 contains one trefoil structure formed by intramolecular disulfides and shows 76% aa identity with mouse TFF3.
