|Calculated MW||30778 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. Recombinant ApoA1 can be used as a positive control. The antibody recognizes ~28 kDa human ApoA1. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.|
|Other Names||Apolipoprotein A-1, Apo-A1, ApoA-1,|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||ApoA1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Participates in the reverse transport of cholesterol from tissues to the liver for excretion by promoting cholesterol efflux from tissues and by acting as a cofactor for the lecithin cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT). As part of the SPAP complex, activates spermatozoa motility.|
|Tissue Location||Major protein of plasma HDL, also found in chylomicrons. Synthesized in the liver and small intestine. The oxidized form at Met-110 and Met-136 is increased in individuals with increased risk for coronary artery disease, such as in carrier of the eNOSa/b genotype and exposure to cigarette smoking It is also present in increased levels in aortic lesions relative to native ApoA-I and increased levels are seen with increasing severity of disease.|

Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
Apolipoprotein A-I (ApoA1) is the primary protein constituent of HDL, defining its size and shape, solubilizing its lipid components, removing cholesterol from peripheral cells, activating the LCAT enzyme, and delivering the resulting cholesterol esters to the liver.
