Background of PLAC4 antibody

PLAC4 Antibody: PLAC4 (placenta-specific protein 4), was initially discovered as a gene whose mR was expressed in placental syncytiotrophoblast and choriocarcinoma cells. While the function of PLAC4 is currently unclear, its gene is known to be located on chromosome 21q22.3. Due to the PLAC4 gene location on chromosome 21 and the release of its mR transcripts into materl bloodstream from the placenta, it has been proposed to be a useful marker noninvasive pretal chromosome 21 aneuploidy detection, although other reports suggests that PLAC4 mR levels are not altered in the materl circulation of pregncies with trisomy 21.
