This product is the carrier-free version of product #49285. All data were generated using the same antibody clone in the standard formulation which contains BSA and glycerol.
This formulation is ideal for use with technologies requiring specialized or custom antibody labeling, including fluorophores, metals, lanthanides, and oligonucleotides. It is not recommended for ChIP, ChIP-seq, CUT&RUN, or CUT&Tag assays. If you require a carrier-free formulation for chromatin profiling, please contact us. Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Supplied in 1X PBS, BSA and Azide Free.
For standard formulation of this product see product #49285.
Store at -20°C. This product will freeze at -20°C so it is recommended to aliquot into single-use vials to avoid multiple freeze/thaw cycles. A slight precipitate may be present and can be dissolved by gently vortexing. This will not interfere with antibody performance.
Specificity / Sensitivity
ApoE (E7X2A) Rabbit mAb (BSA and Azide Free) recognizes endogenous levels of total mouse ApoE protein. Non-specific staining was observed in mouse pancreatic islets by immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Asp26 of mouse ApoE protein.
Apolipoproteins are plasma lipoproteins that function as transporters of lipids and cholesterol in the circulatory system. Chylomicrons are a fundamental class of apolipoproteins containing very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL), intermediate-density lipoproteins (IDL), low-density lipoproteins (LDL), and high-density lipoproteins (HDL) (1,2).
Human ApoE has three isoforms: ApoE2, ApoE3, and ApoE4. These three isoforms differ in the combination of cysteine and arginine residues located at positions 130 and 176. The ApoE4 isoform contains arginine at both locations (3). Arginine 130 in ApoE4 allows for interaction between carboxy- and amino-terminal domains through orientation of arginine 61, leading to a preference for binding lower density lipoproteins, where ApoE2 and ApoE3 show preference for binding HDL. Mouse ApoE contains similar sequence to human ApoE4, with arginine present at equivalent positions to 130 and 176. However, the mouse sequence lacks arginine at critical position 61, which allows it to behave similarly to human ApoE3, including preferential binding to HDL (4).
