Detection of TSPAN12 in HEK293 Human Cell Line Transfected with Human TSPAN12 and eGFP by Flow Cytometry. HEK293 human embryonic kidney cell line transfected with human TSPAN12 and eGFP was stained with either (A) Mouse Anti-Human TSPAN12 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8910) or (B) Mouse IgG2B Isotype Control (Catalog # MAB004) followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B).
TSPAN12 in HeLa Human Cell Line. TSPAN12 was detected in immersion fixed HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line using Mouse Anti-Human TSPAN12 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8910) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

TSPAN12 is a member of the transmembrane 4 superfamily, also known as the tetraspanin family. They mediate signal transduction events that play a role in the regulation of cell development, activation, growth and motility. TSPAN12 plays a central role in retinal vascularization by regulating norrin signal transduction. TSPAN12 acts in concert with norrin to promote FZD4 multimerization and subsequent activation of FZD4, leading to promote accumulation of beta-catenin and stimulate LEF/TCF-mediated transcriptional programs. Defects in TSPAN12 are the cause of vitreoretinopathy exudative type 5, a disorder of the retinal vasculature characterized by an abrupt cessation of growth of peripheral capillaries, leading to an avascular peripheral retina.
