Human Glypican 3
Accession # P51654.1
Accession #
N-terminal Sequence
No results obtained. Gln25 inferred from enzymatic pyroglutamate treatment revealing Pro26 and Ser359.
Structure / Form
Disulfide-linked homodimer. Glypican 3 is subject to endoproteolytic processing by proprotein convertases (PC). By amino acid sequencing, Two subunits (Alpha and Beta) are present (Alpha inferred to start with Gln25 and Beta starting with Ser359).  They are associated via disulfide bonds.   
Predicted Molecular Mass
87 kDa (monomer)
230-330 kDa, under non-reducing conditions.

Carrier Free

What does CF mean?

CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.

What formulation is right for me?

In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.


Formulation Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS.
Reconstitution Reconstitute at 500 μg/mL in PBS.

Background: Glypican 3

Glypican 3 (GPC3), also known as OCI5 and MXR7, is a member of the heparan sulfate proteoglycan (HSPG) family (1). In mammals, six glypican family members have been identified, all sharing a structurally common extracellular domain (ECD) with a large globular cysteine-rich domain (CRD) with 14 invariant cysteine residues, a stalk-like region containing the heparan sulfate attachment sites, and a C‑terminal GPI attachment site. The ECD of GPC3 can be cleaved by furin to produce two subunits that are linked by disulfide bonds: a 40 kDa N‑terminal alpha subunit that can be secreted into the blood and a 30 kDa membrane-bound C‑terminal beta subunit containing two HS glycan chains (1-3). Within ECD, human GPC3 shares 96% amino acid sequence identity with both mouse and rat GPC3. Several isoforms of GPC3 due to alternative splicing have been reported (1). GPC3 is widely expressed on the membrane of various embryonic cells, but not on those in adult liver, and is involved in the regulation of growth and development of the body (4). GPC3 is over-expressed in hepatocellular carcinomas and binding of GPC3 to CD81 promotes development of carcinomas by activation of Hippo pathways in hepatocytes (5). GPC3 is an important biomarker present in the serum of hepatocellular carcinoma patients, which distinguishes benign from cancerous nodules (6). Loss-of-function mutations in GPC3 are associated with Simpson-Golabi-Behmel (SGB) syndrome, a condition characterized by tissue overgrowth (dysmorphogenesis) (7).
