- CITATIONS: 1
|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||42803 Da|
|Antigen Region||29-59 aa|
|Other Names||Advanced glycosylation end product-specific receptor, Receptor for advanced glycosylation end products, AGER, RAGE|
|Target/Specificity||This RAGE (AGER) antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 29-59 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human RAGE (AGER).|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|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||RAGE (AGER) Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Mediates interactions of advanced glycosylation end products (AGE). These are nonenzymatically glycosylated proteins which accumulate in vascular tissue in aging and at an accelerated rate in diabetes. Acts as a mediator of both acute and chronic vascular inflammation in conditions such as atherosclerosis and in particular as a complication of diabetes. AGE/RAGE signaling plays an important role in regulating the production/expression of TNF- alpha, oxidative stress, and endothelial dysfunction in type 2 diabetes. Interaction with S100A12 on endothelium, mononuclear phagocytes, and lymphocytes triggers cellular activation, with generation of key proinflammatory mediators. Interaction with S100B after myocardial infarction may play a role in myocyte apoptosis by activating ERK1/2 and p53/TP53 signaling (By similarity). Receptor for amyloid beta peptide. Contributes to the translocation of amyloid-beta peptide (ABPP) across the cell membrane from the extracellular to the intracellular space in cortical neurons. ABPP-initiated RAGE signaling, especially stimulation of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), has the capacity to drive a transport system delivering ABPP as a complex with RAGE to the intraneuronal space. Can also bind oligonucleotides.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Isoform 10: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Endothelial cells.|
