|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_000032, 348|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 35 kDa |
Observed: 34 kDa
|Application Notes||APO-E antibody can be used for detection of APO-E by Western blot at 1 - 2 μg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 5 μg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 μg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||APO-E antibody was raised against a 19 amino acid peptide near the carboxy terminus of human APO-E.|
The immunogen is located within amino acids 220 - 270 of APO-E.
|Reconstitution & Storage||APO-E antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.|
|Precautions||APO-E Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Mediates the binding, internalization, and catabolism of lipoprotein particles. It can serve as a ligand for the LDL (apo B/E) receptor and for the specific apo-E receptor (chylomicron remnant) of hepatic tissues.|
|Tissue Location||Occurs in all lipoprotein fractions in plasma. It constitutes 10-20% of very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) and 1-2% of high density lipoproteins (HDL). APOE is produced in most organs. Significant quantities are produced in liver, brain, spleen, lung, adrenal, ovary, kidney and muscle|

APO-E Antibody: Chylomicron remnants and very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) remnants are rapidly removed from the circulation by receptor-mediated endocytosis in the liver. Apolipoprotein E (APO-E), a main apoprotein of the chylomicron, binds to a specific receptor on liver cells and peripheral cells and is essential for the normal catabolism of triglyceride-rich lipoprotein constituents. Defects in APO-E result in familial dysbetalipoproteinemia, or type III hyperlipoproteinemia (HLP III), in which increased plasma cholesterol and triglycerides are the consequence of impaired clearance of chylomicron and VLDL remnants.
