A recommended positive control is human liver tissue lysate.
At least three isoforms of SHBG are known to exist; this antibody will detect all three isoforms.
SHBG is a steroid binding protein that was first described as a plasma protein secreted by the liver and is thought to participate in the regulation of steroid responses. SHBG transports androgens and estrogens in the blood, binding each steroid molecule as a dimer formed from identical or nearly identical monomers. Low plasma SHBG levels are associated with obesity, abdominal adiposity, metabolic syndrome, and predict the development of type 2 diabetes. Polymorphisms in this gene have been associated with polycystic ovary syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
