By sandwich ELISA, MA5-14668 can be used as a detection antibody with Product # 710263 or # 701239 as a coating antibody, to generate a matched pair. Using these matched pairs, recombinant human Apo A-1, but not recombinant mouse Apo A-1, was detected. MA5-14668 can be used to detect Apo A-1 from serum samples. To increase sensitivity of sandwich ELISAs with MA5-14668, a biotinylated detection antibody followed by Streptavidin-HRP is recommended.
By Western blot, MA5-14668 detects recombinant human Apo A-1, but not recombinant mouse Apo A-1. MA5-14668 may not be as successful for detecting endogenous Apo A-1 by Western blot.
Product MA514668 is a smaller package size of MIA1402 (formerly sold as a Seradyn product).
This gene encodes apolipoprotein A-I, which is the major protein component of high density lipoprotein (HDL) in plasma. The protein promotes cholesterol efflux from tissues to the liver for excretion, and it is a cofactor for lecithin cholesterolacyltransferase (LCAT) which is responsible for the formation of most plasma cholesteryl esters. This gene is closely linked with two other apolipoprotein genes on chromosome 11. Defects in this gene are associated with HDL deficiencies, including Tangier disease, and with systemic non-neuropathic amyloidosis.
