Specificity / Sensitivity
RECK (D8C7) Rabbit mAb detects endogenous levels of total RECK protein.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ile913 of human RECK protein.
RECK (reversion-inducing cysteine-rich protein with Kazal motif) is a GPI-anchored membrane glycoprotein that negatively regulates members of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family and functions as a suppressor of transformation (1,2). Its function in MMP inhibition makes RECK a crucial factor in the regulation of extracellular matrix formation and stability during development (2-4). RECK has also been linked to the regulation of other extracellar matrix proteases such as ADAM10 and CD13 and functions in modulating target protein endocytosis and Notch signaling (5,6). RECK is widely expressed in normal tissue and decreased expression of RECK due to promoter methylation has been correlated with tumor transformation, angiogenesis and metastasis (1,7-9). Therefore, loss of RECK expression serves as a prognostic hallmark for cancer malignancy (10,11)
