Background of MUC4

Mucin 4, also known as MUC4, is a mucin protein that in humans is encoded by the MUC4 gene. Like other mucins, Mucin 4 is a high-molecular weight glycoprotein. It is mapped to 3q29. In normal functioning, Mucin 4 is known to play anti-adhesive roles in the body, such as in lubricating the reproductive lining. It is found in the respiratory tract, particularly in the trachea and lung and the digestive tract, in the esophagus and colon, as well as in the visual and auditory systems. Mucin 4 serves to protect and lubricate the epithelium, which facilitates transport and traps foreign particles. It is found to be overexpressed during the luteal phase of menstruation. Mucin 4 may also have a role in fetal morphogenic development.

Antibody Validation

Boster validates all antibodies on WB, IHC, ICC, Immunofluorescence and ELISA with known positive and negative samples to ensure specificity and high affinity.

4 Customer Q&As for Anti-MUC4 Antibody Picoband™


We are currently using anti-MUC4 antibody PB9147 for human tissue, and we are satisfied with the WB results. The species of reactivity given in the datasheet says human, rat. Is it likely that the antibody can work on dog tissues as well?

The anti-MUC4 antibody (PB9147) has not been validated for cross reactivity specifically with dog tissues, though there is a good chance of cross reactivity. We have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in dog you can get your next antibody for free. Please contact me if I can help you with anything.
