Data Examples

Western Blot Detection of Mouse Thrombospondin‑4 by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Mouse Thrombospondin‑4 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of mouse muscle tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Mouse Thrombospondin-4 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7860) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Thrombospondin-4 at approximately 120 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Thrombospondin‑4 in Mouse Skeletal Muscle. Thrombospondin-4 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse skeletal muscle using Sheep Anti-Mouse Thrombospondin-4 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7860) at 5 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). Specific staining was localized to connective tissue.

Background: Thrombospondin-4

Mouse Thrombospondin-4 (TSP-4) is a 120-130 kDa adhesive glycoprotein that belongs to the thrombospondin family of proteins.  It is 963 amino acids (aa) in length and highly modular in structure, containing one Lamnin G-like domain, four EGF-like domains and eight type 3 TSP domains.  It circulates as a disulfide-linked homopentamer, and is up-regulated in the heart in response to ischemic injury and pathology. Mature mouse TSP-4 is 93% aa identical to human TSP4.
