Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
Phospholipid transfer protein , Lipid transfer protein II
Plasma phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) plays a central role in regulating plasma HDL levels and distribution of HDL subpopulations. This regulation is evidenced in vivo by markedly reduced plasma HDL levels in PLTP gene knock-out mice. PLTP also facilitates free cholesterol influx into HDL.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 473 of human PLTP
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg affinity purified rabbit anti-PLTP polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 1% BSA and 0.02% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Immunohistochemistry
Western blotting (1:200-1000 dilutions) and in Immunohistochemistry (1:50 dilutions). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes 55 kDa PLTP of human and mouse origins.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
