Nephronectin in Mouse Pancreas. Nephronectin was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of mouse pancreas using Goat Anti-Mouse Nephronectin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4298) at 1 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Goat IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (VC004). Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (CTS013). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to islet cells. Staining was performed using our protocol for IHC Staining with VisUCyte HRP Polymer Detection Reagents.

Background: Nephronectin

Nephronectin, also named POEM (preosteoblast EGF repeat protein with MAM domain) is a 70‑90 kDa extracellular matrix protein that is a ligand for integrin alpha 8 beta 1 (1, 2). The 561 amino acid (aa) mouse Nephronectin (isoform b) contains a 19 aa signal sequence, a matrilin-type vWA domain, two calcium-binding EGF-like domains, a potential N-linked glycosylation site, a pro/ser/thr-rich mucin-like region, an RGD integrin binding motif, and a MAM domain. These features are often present in matrix proteins that, like Nephronectin, mediate cell adhesion and spreading (1, 2). Isoform a includes a 17 aa insertion between aa 58 and 59 that is missing in isoform b. Mouse Nephronectin shows 88%, 92%, 85% and 77% aa identity with human, rat, bovine and opossum Nephronectin, respectively. It is most highly expressed in developing endocrine organs such as parathyroid, thyroid, hypophysis and pineal organ, and around developing bone, teeth, and muscle (1, 2). Pre-osteoblast cells produce Nephronectin, but down‑regulate it as they differentiate (1). It is also expressed in the Wolffian duct and ureteric bud basement membranes in the developing kidney, where it is colocalizes, and forms an in-vivo complex with integrin alpha 8 beta 1 (2). Since deletion of integrin alpha 8 beta 1 results in renal agenesis, Nephronectin has been proposed to be a critical integrin alpha 8 beta 1 ligand during Nephrogenesis (2, 3).
