[F02] FITC-conjugated Sheep Anti-Human Apolipoprotein (a)10F-S1a
|Concentration:||1 mg/ml (OD 1.35 / 280 nm)|
|Antigen:||Human Apolipoprotein (a)|
|Buffer:||75 mM Sodium Phosphate, 75 mM NaCl, 0.5 mM EDTA, 0.02% NaN3, pH 7.2|
Specifically binds to human apo (a). Molar F/P ratio is 5.7. The investigator should determine working dilutions.
|Use:||The antibody can be used for detection of human albumin in plasma and lipoproteins, immunoassays, immunoblots, enzyme conjugation, or biotinylation.|
|Storage:||-20°C for long-term storage, 4°C for short- term storage. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing.|
|Form:||Freeze dried powder|
|Stabilizer:||5 mg / ml Bovine Serum Albumin.|
Freeze-dried product should be stored refrigerated until opened. After opening, restore to suggested ml volume with distilled water. If it is not completely clear after standing for 1-2 hours at room temperature, centrifuge the product. It is stable for several weeks at 4°C as an undiluted liquid. Do not use for more than one day after dilution. For extended storage after reconstitution, we suggest aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing; or the addition of an equal volume of glycerol to make a final glycerol concentration of 50%, followed by storage at -20°C. The concentration of protein and buffer salts will decrease to one-half of the original after the addition of glycerol.

The Lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)] structure is similar to that of low density lipoprotein (LDL), regarding size and lipid composition of the particles and the presence of apolipoprotein B-100 (apo B-100). In addition to apo B-100, Lp(a) has a second protein, apolipoprotein (a) [apo (a)], which the molecular weight of that glycoprotein varies widely from 400 to 700 kDa. (Maranhão et al., 2013)
Previous research has shown that apo (a) has a similar structure with plasminogen and contains a serine protease domain and two types of plasminogen-like kringle domains. (McLean et al., 1987) The plasma concentration of human lipoprotein[a], Lp[a], is highly correlated with coronary artery disease. (Gaubatz et al., 1990)
