Target Details

  • Target: Activin C
  • Target background: Activin is part of the TGF-beta superfamily, known to regulate growth and differentiation of cells. The ?-C subunit of Activin is expressed in a range of tissues having growth promoting and inhibitory properties. ?-C Clone 1 recognizes the ?-C subunit of Activin and is a useful stain to detect expression of the protein in hepatocyte cells.
