PA1-31405 detects SR-BI from rat, mouse, human samples.
PA1-31405 has been successfully used in immunoprecipitation, immunohistochemistry (paraffin tissue), Western blot applications.
The PA1-31405 immunogen is: A C-terminal peptide containing residues from mouse Scavenger Receptor-BI (within residues 450-509).
High density lipoproteins (HDLs) play a critical role in cholesterol metabolism and their plasma concentrations are inversely correlated with risk for atherosclerosis. The SR-BI binds HDLs and mediates selective uptake of HDL cholesteryl ester. SR-BI binds HDL with high affinity, is expressed primarily in liver and nonplacental steroidogenic tissues, and mediates selective cholesterol uptake by a distinct mechanism. In mice, it seems that SR-BI plays a key role in determining the levels of plasma lipoprotein cholesterol and the accumulation of cholesterol stores in the adrenal gland.
