Fibroblast Activation Protein alpha /FAP in C2C12 Mouse Cell Line. Fibroblast Activation Protein a/FAP was detected in immersion fixed C2C12 mouse myoblast cell line using Rat Anti-Mouse Fibroblast Activation Protein a/FAP Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB9727) at 8 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL013) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to plasma membrane and cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Background: Fibroblast Activation Protein alpha/FAP

FAP (also known as seprase) is a 95 kDa Type II transmembrane serine protease that is structurally related to dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPPIV/CD26) (1, 2). Within the extracellular domain, mouse FAP shares 90% and 97% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with human and rat FAP, respectively (3, 4). Alternative splicing of mouse FAP generates isoforms with a 33 aa or 5 aa deletion in the extracellular juxtamembrane region (3). FAP is expressed on reactive stromal fibroblasts in tumor tissue and wound healing and on synoviocytes in rheumatoid arthritis (1, 5-7). It exhibits dipeptidyl peptidase activity with substrate specificity similar to DPPIV, which is specific for N-terminal Xaa-Pro sequences (5, 8). FAP is also an endopeptidase that can degrade Gelatin, Collagens I and IV, Fibronectin, and Laminin (1, 5, 8) as well as several peptide hormones (e.g. Neuropeptide Y, Brain Natriuretic Peptide, Substance P, Peptide YY, and Incretins) (9). The enzymatic activity is dependent on FAP association with DPPIV on the cell surface (5, 8, 10, 11). The matrix-dedgrading activity of FAP contributes to tumor cell migration and invasion (10-13). In addition, FAP can enhance tumor cell growth by limiting the development of anti-tumor immunity (14).
