UPK3A Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 214 amino acids (19-207 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 23.1kDa.UPK3A is fused to a 25 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
UPK3A is a member of the uroplakin-3 family. Uroplakins (UP) which are transmembrane proteins are important components of the urothelium that pass the lipid bilayer once (UPII, UPIIIa, and UPIIIb) or four times (UPIa and UPIb; both members of the "tetraspanin" family). All hold great luminal/extracellular domains, but only UPIIIa and UPIIIb have significant cytoplasmic shares in their C-termini. UPK3A is an extremely specific and moderately sensitive immunohistochemical marker for primary and metastatic urothelial carcinomas. Alterations in this gene are related to renal adysplasia.
