[F06] FITC-conjugated Goat Anti-Human Apolipoprotein B-10020F-G1a
|Concentration:||1 mg/ml (OD 1.35 / 280 nm)|
|Antigen:||Human Apolipoprotein B100|
|Form:||Freeze dried powder|
|Buffer:||75 mM Sodium Phosphate, 75 mM NaCl, 0.5 mM EDTA, 0.02% NaN3, pH 7.2|
Specifically binds to human apo B-100. Molar F/P ratio is 6.1. The investigator should determine working dilutions.
|Use:||The antibody can be used for detection of apo B-100 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.

ApoB exists in human plasma in two isoforms, ApoB-48 (Chen et al., 1987) and Apo B-100 (Wei et al., 1985, Yang et al., 1986a; 1989a,b; 1990; Chen et al., 1986; Yang et al., 1990, Yang and Pownall, 1992). Apo B-100 is the major physiological ligand for the LDL receptor. Apo B-100 is a large monomeric protein, containing 4536 amino acids (m.w. 515 kDa, Yang et al., 1986b).
Apo B-100 is synthesized in the liver and is required for the assembly of VLDL. It is found in LDL and VLDL after the removal of the Apo A, E and C. Apo B-48 is present in chylomicrons and their remnants. It is essential for the intestinal absorption of dietary lipids. Apo B levels correlate with the risk of coronary disease.
The Apo B protein is directly involved in the retention of LDL with the arterial wall (Olofsson and Boren, 2012). Apo B-48 is synthesized in the small intestine. It comprises approximately half of the N-terminal region of ApoB-100 and is the result of posttranscriptional mRNA editing by a stop codon in the intestine not found in the liver.
