Western Blot (Tissue lysate)
SPINK1 monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 4D4. Western Blot analysis of SPINK1 expression in human pancreas.
The protein encoded by this gene is a trypsin inhibitor, which is secreted from pancreatic acinar cells into pancreatic juice. It is thought to function in the prevention of trypsin-catalyzed premature activation of zymogens within the pancreas and the pancreatic duct. Mutations in this gene are associated with hereditary pancreatitis and tropical calcific pancreatitis. [provided by RefSeq
