|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Description||Rabbit IgG polyclonal antibody for Apolipoprotein A-I(APOA1) detection. Tested with WB in Human;Mouse;Rat.|
|Reconstitution||Add 0.2ml of distilled water will yield a concentration of 500ug/ml.|
|Other Names||Apolipoprotein A-I, Apo-AI, ApoA-I, Apolipoprotein A1, Proapolipoprotein A-I, ProapoA-I, Truncated apolipoprotein A-I, Apolipoprotein A-I(1-242), APOA1|
|Calculated MW||30778 MW KDa|
|Application Details||Western blot, 0.1-0.5 µg/ml, Human, Rat, Mouse|
|Tissue Specificity||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. .|
|Protein Name||Apolipoprotein A-I(Apo-AI/ApoA-I)|
|Contents||Each vial contains 5mg BSA, 0.9mg NaCl, 0.2mg Na2HPO4, 0.05mg Thimerosal, 0.05mg NaN3.|
|Immunogen||A synthetic peptide corresponding to a sequence at the N-terminus of human APOA1 (42-58aa YVDVLKDSGRDYVSQFE), different from the related mouse and rat sequences by two amino acids.|
|Purification||Immunogen affinity purified.|
|Cross Reactivity||No cross reactivity with other proteins|
|Storage||At -20˚C for one year. After r˚Constitution, at 4˚C for one month. It˚Can also be aliquotted and stored frozen at -20˚C for a longer time.Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.|
|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the apolipoprotein A1/A4/E family.|
|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.|

Apolipoprotein A-1, also known as APOA1, is a human protein with a specific role in lipid metabolism. It binds to lipopolysaccharide or endotoxin, and has a major role in the anti-endotoxin function of HDL. The gene is mapped to 11q23. And it is a single polypeptide chain with 243 amino acid residues of known primary amino acid sequence. The ApoA-I protein promotes cholesterol efflux from tissues to the liver for excretion. It is a cofactor for lecithin cholesterolacyltransferase(LCAT) which is responsible for the formation of most plasma cholesteryl esters. ApoA-I was also isolated as a prostacyclin(PGI2) stabilizing factor, and thus may have an anticlotting effect. Defects in the gene encoding it are associated with HDL deficiencies, including Tangier disease, and with systemic non-neuropathic amyloidosis.Additionally, ApoA-I overexpression promotes macrophage-specific reverse cholesterol transport.
