MA1-80192 recognizes human CD91, a type I membrane protein which is also known as alpha-2 macroglobulin receptor (alpha2 MR). MA1-80192 recognizes an epitope in the extracellular region of the 500 kD alpha chain.
A suggested positive control for immunohistochemical applications is liver. Non-reducing conditions are recommended for Western blot applications. For FACS analysis, use 10 µL of the suggested working dilution to label 1x10^6 cells in 100 µL.
The protein encoded by this gene is an endocytic receptor involved in several cellular processes, including intracellular signaling, lipid homeostasis, and clearance of apoptotic cells. In addition, the encoded protein is necessary for the A2M-mediated clearance of secreted amyloid precursor protein and beta-amyloid, the main component of amyloid plaques found in Alzheimer patients. Expression of this gene decreases with age and has been found to be lower than controls in brain tissue from Alzheimer patients.
