ApoE belongs to a group of proteins that bind reversibly with lipoprotein and play an important role in lipid metabolism. ApoE is an important constituent of all plasma lipoproteins. It’s interaction with specific ApoE receptor enables uptake of chylomicron remnants by liver cells, which is an essential step during normal lipid metabolism. It also binds with the LDL receptor (apo B/E). Defects in ApoE are a cause of hyperlipoproteinemia type III. ApoE exists in three major isoforms; E2, E3, and E4, which differ from one another by a single amino-acid substitution. E3 is the most common isoform and is present in 40-90% of the population.
Apolipoprotein E3, APOE 3, APOE3, APOE-3
Recombinant human ApoE3
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.
Application & Usage:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. Recombinant ApoA1 (Cat. # 4696-100) can be used as a positive control. The antibody recognizes ~34 kDa of human ApoE3. Reactivity to other species has n
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
