PA1-075 detects receptor for advanced glycation endproducts (RAGE) from mouse and rat samples.
PA1-075 has been successfully used in Western blot and immunohistochemistry procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects two bands in the 45 kDa range representing the RAGE protein pre and post-glycosylation in mouse lung extract. This antibody also detects an ~25 kDa protein that is believed to be proteolytic degradation product. Immunohistochemical staining of RAGE in transgenic mouse retina results in staining of the retinal pigmented epithelium and photo receptor cell layers.
The PA1-075 immunogen is a synthetic peptides corresponding to residues C(362) W R K R Q P R (R/L) E E R K A P E S Q E D(380) of rat RAGE. This sequence is 100% conserved in mouse and 70% conserved in humans. This peptide (Cat. # PEP-194) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
The receptor for advanced glycation endproducts (RAGE) is a member of the Immunoglobin superfamily of cell surface markers. This protein is able to interact with many molecules including: advanced glycation endproducts (AGE), amphoterin, and ligands. Research has shown that the accumulation of RAGE ligands in the biological system (endothelium mononuclear phagocytes, neurons and smooth muscle cells) can lead to destructive tissue diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, amyloidoses, tumors and inflammation disorders.
