PA1-22558 detects apolipoprotein A1 in human samples. This antibody does not detect apolipoprotein A2, B, C1, C2, C3, E, or J.
PA1-22558 has been successfully used in ELISA , Western blot, immunoprecipitation and immunohistochemistry (paraffin) procedures.
The PA1-22558 immunogen is purified full length native apolipoprotein type A-I.
Store at 4°C short term. For extended storage aliquot and store at -20°C, avoiding freeze/thaw cycles.
At least 9 distinct polymorphic forms of apolipoproteins are known. The apolipoproteins act as stabilizers of the intact lipoprotein particles. Quantitative measurements of HDL, LDL and VLDL particles in human serum are often used to estimate an individuals' relative risk of coronary heart disease. In addition, quantitative immunological measurements of certain apolipoproteins (especially A-1 and B) have been suggested to be more accurate estimators of coronary heart disease than measurements of lipoprotein particles (especially HDL and LDL). The apolipoproteins are derived from human plasma by density gradient ultracentrifugation and HPLC.
