Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of u-Plasminogen Activator (uPA)/Urokinase antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of u‑Plasminogen Activator (uPA)/Urokinase by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of mouse kidney tissue, mouse liver tissue, and mouse placenta tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Rat Anti-Mouse u-Plasminogen Activator (uPA)/Urokinase Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB9185) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). A specific band was detected for u-Plasminogen Activator (uPA)/Urokinase at approximately 54 and 30 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

u‑Plasminogen Activator (uPA)/Urokinase in Mouse Kidney. u-Plasminogen Activator (uPA)/Urokinase was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse kidney using Rat Anti-Mouse u-Plasminogen Activator (uPA)/Urokinase Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB9185) at 25 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL013) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm in convoluted tubules. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

Background: u-Plasminogen Activator (uPA)/Urokinase

Urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) is a 378 amino acid enzyme which cleaves the zymogen plasminogen to form the active enzyme plasmin. uPa occurs in high and low molecular mass forms each consisting of two chains (A and B).  The high mass form has a long A chain while the low mass form has a short chain AuPA is widely expressed in normal tissues including epithelia, muscle, reproductive organs and brain, and  is highly expressed in kidney, where it localizes to proximal and distal tubules and is secreted into urine. uPA is known to play a role in wound healing and  tissue remodeling and  tumor invasion
