Immunoprecipitation of VTN transfected lysate using anti-VTN MaxPab rabbit polyclonal antibody and Protein A Magnetic Bead (U0007), and immunoblotted with VTN purified MaxPab mouse polyclonal antibody (B01P) (H00007448-B01P).
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the pexin family. It is found in serum and tissues and promotes cell adhesion and spreading, inhibits the membrane-damaging effect of the terminal cytolytic complement pathway, and binds to several serpin serine protease inhibitors. It is a secreted protein and exists in either a single chain form or a clipped, two chain form held together by a disulfide bond. [provided by RefSeq
