Antibody Name: myp Ab1

Common Name: major yolk protein

Synonyms: major yolk platelet glycoprotein

Gene: myp

Clone Type: Polyclonal

Clone Number
Purification Affinity Purification
Isotype IgG
Host Organism rabbit
Echinoderm Reactivity S. purpuratus, L. pictus
Non-Echinoderm Reactivity
Description: Reacts with the intact and proteolytic products of a ~160 kDa yolk platelet glycoprotein that is conserved among echinoids (Arbacia punctulata, Dendraster excentricus, Heliocidaris tuberculata) up to the pluteus larval stage. Created by the Lennarz lab formerly within the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas.
Name 90-kDa glycoprotein
Type polypeptide
Post Translational Modifications Proteolysis
Source Organism purple sea urchin
Description Abundant protein product excised from polyacrylamide gel utilized to separate gastrula stage polymannose glycoproteins.
Reported Usage
enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay
western blot
