|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||69069 Da|
|Antigen Region||49-76 aa|
|Other Names||Afamin, Alpha-albumin, Alpha-Alb, AFM, ALB2, ALBA|
|Target/Specificity||This AFM antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 49-76 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human AFM.|
|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||AFM Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Vitamin E binding protein. May transport vitamin E in body fluids under conditions where the lipoprotein system is not sufficient. May be involved in the regulation and transport of vitamin E at the blood-brain barrier.|
|Tissue Location||High level detected in plasma but also in extravascular fluids such as follicular and cerebrospinal fluids (at protein level).|

AFM is a member of the albumin gene family, which is comprised of four genes that localize to chromosome 4 in a tandem arrangement. These four genes encode structurally-related serum transport proteins that are known to be evolutionarily related. The protein encoded by this gene is regulated developmentally, expressed in the liver and secreted into the bloodstream.
