|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||Q8SQC1, NP_005496.4|
|Calculated MW||60878 Da|
|Antigen Region||72-101 aa|
|Other Names||Scavenger receptor class B member 1, SRB1, CD36 and LIMPII analogous 1, CLA-1, CD36 antigen-like 1, Collagen type I receptor, thrombospondin receptor-like 1, SR-BI, CD36, SCARB1, CD36L1, CLA1|
|Target/Specificity||This SCARB1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 72-101 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human SCARB1.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||SCARB1 Antibody(N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for different ligands such as phospholipids, cholesterol ester, lipoproteins, phosphatidylserine and apoptotic cells (PubMed:12016218, PubMed:12519372, PubMed:21226579). Facilitates the flux of free and esterified cholesterol between the cell surface and extracellular donors and acceptors, such as high density lipoproteins (HDL) and to a lesser extent, apoB- containing lipoproteins and modified lipoproteins. Necessary for selective HDL-cholesterol uptake (PubMed:26965621). Probably involved in the phagocytosis of apoptotic cells, via its phosphatidylserine binding activity (PubMed:12016218).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Membrane, caveola; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Predominantly localized to cholesterol and sphingomyelin-enriched domains within the plasma membrane, called caveolae|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed.|

Receptor for different ligands such as phospholipids, cholesterol ester, lipoproteins, phosphatidylserine and apoptotic cells. Probable receptor for HDL, located in particular region of the plasma membrane, called caveolae. Facilitates the flux of free and esterified cholesterol between the cell surface and extracellular donors and acceptors, such as HDL and to a lesser extent, apoB-containing lipoproteins and modified lipoproteins. Probably involved in the phagocytosis of apoptotic cells, via its phosphatidylserine binding activity. Receptor for hepatitis C virus glycoprotein E2. Binding between SCARB1 and E2 was found to be independent of the genotype of the viral isolate. Plays an important role in the uptake of HDL cholesteryl ester (By similarity).
