Detection of Mouse Progranulin/PGRN by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of mouse uterus tissue and J774A.1 mouse reticulum cell sarcoma macrophage cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Mouse Progranulin/PGRN Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2557) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Progranulin/PGRN at approximately 85‑90 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Progranulin in Mouse Kidney.
Progranulin was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of mouse kidney using Sheep Anti-Mouse Progranulin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2557) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Sheep HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS019) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Mouse Progranulin, also known as Proepithelin, PC Cell-derived Growth Factor and Acrogranin, is a secreted protein of 572 amino acid residues. It contains seven and one half granulin repeats which are characterized by 6 disulfide bridges. Progranulin can be converted in vivo to granulins by proteolysis. Progranulin is a mitogen that stimulates proliferation and survival of various epithelial, mesenchymal and tumor cells. Several granulins have also been shown to be biologically active and may play a role in inflammation and wound healing. Mouse Progranulin shares 86% and 75% amino acid sequence homology with rat and human Progranulin, respectively.
