|Target/Specificity||ABD11803 recognises an epitope within the 74-182 C-terminal (CT) sequence (11kD peptide fragment) of human serum Retinol Binding Protein (RBP), a single-chain glycoprotein belonging to the superfamily of hydrophobic molecule transporter proteins, which is responsible for the transport of Retinol (vitamin A1) from the liver to peripheral target tissues.RBP is synthesised by hepatic parenchymal cells where it becomes bound to its ligand retinol and is then released into the circulation, where it binds further to the protein transthyretin, to form a transporting complex. An increasing number of studies suggest that the subsequent release of retinol from RBP at the plasma membrane occurs through interaction of RBP with specific membrane receptors.|
