[S05] Sheep Anti-Human Apolipoprotein AII Antiserum12S-S1
|Antigen:||Human Apolipoprotein AII|
Specifically binds to human apo AII. Dilution for immunoblot and ELISA range: 1,000 to 320,000.
The antibody can be used for detection of human apo AII in human plasma and lipoproteins, using immunoassays or immunoblots.
|Storage:||-20°C for long-term storage, 4°C for short- term storage. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing.|
Apo AII comprises 25% of HDL. It exists in human plasma as a dimer of 2 identical chains of 77 amino acid residues, joined by disulfide. The molecular weight is reported to be 8.7 kDa for a single chain (Brewer et al., 1972).
Studies on mouse reported that apo AII may be proatherogenic (Warden et al., 1993); however, case-control study in the large European Prospective Investigation demonstrated that plasma Apo AII concentrations were strongly inversely correlated with CHD events (Birjmohun et al., 2007).
