anti-Perilipin 3 (N-terminus) guinea pig polyclonal, serum

Cargo protein involved in the trafficking of the mannose-6-phosphate receptor between endosomes and the Golgi complex. Localized on the surface of lipid droplets present in many cells and tissues, especially in the milk fat globule membranes of human and bovine. Increased amounts are found in cervix carcinoma patients.

TIP47 (tail-interacting protein of 47 kD; also named PLIN3) is involved in lipid droplet maturation. The protein has been localized in milk fat globule membranes of human and bovine origin. It has been described also as a placental protein. Increased amounts of TIP47 are secreted into circulation of cervix carcinoma patients. After radical surgery TIP47 serum levels are decreased (Than et al. 1999). TIP47 shows about 40% sequence homology to adipophilin (PLIN2). The GP30 antiserum, however, is specific for TIP47 (PLIN3) and does not cross-react with adipophilin (PLIN2) and perilipin (PLIN1) or other proteins of the PLIN/PAT family. Reactivity on cultured cell lines: PLC cells, pretreated with oleic acid.
