saposin Antibody (F-15) is a high quality monoclonal saposin antibody (also designated saposin antibody) suitable for the detection of the saposin protein of human origin. saposin Antibody (F-15) is available as the non-conjugated anti-saposin antibody. The saposin family includes four structurally related activator proteins, saposin A, B, C and D, that are cleaved from the single precursor protein prosaposin. The gene encoding human prosaposin maps to chromosome 10. Prosaposin is synthesized as a protein that is posttranslationally modified to a shorter form and then further glycosylated to yield a secretory product. This form subsequently undergoes partial proteolysis to produce saposin A, B, C and D. Each saposin family member acts in conjunction with hydrolase enzymes to facilitate the breakdown of glycosphingolipids within the lysosome. The saposins modify the environment of target lipids to make them accessible to the active sites of specific enzymes. Saposin A and C are involved in the hydrolysis of glucosylceramidase, and defects in saposin C are linked to Gaucher′s disease. Saposin B facilitates the hydrolysis of the sulfate group from cerebroside sulfate, and defects in this protein are responsible for a form of metachromatic leukodystropy, a progressive neurodegenerative condition. Saposin D may stimulate the hydrolysis of sphingomyelin and ceramide, but its exact physiological role is not clear.

Can sc-100584: saposin (F-15) monoclonal antibody be used to stain formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sections?
Asked by: AbPolly
Thank you for your question. Yes, sc-100584: saposin (F-15) is recommended for use in IHC with paraffin-embedded sections. We recommend performing antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6) and heat. The full protocol can be found here:
