  • Description
    Goat polyclonal to Apolipoprotein A I
  • SpecificityTypically less than 1% cross reactivity against other types of apoLipoprotein was detected by ELISA. This antibody reacts with mouse apoLipoprotein A-I and has negligible cross-reactivity with Type A-II, B, C-I, C-II, C-III, E and J apoLipoproteins.

  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse
  • Immunogen

    Full length native apoLipoprotein Type A-I (purified).

  • General notesThis antibody has been used to determine that atherosclerotic lesions in the human aorta contain considerable amounts of lipoproteins. These lipoproteins were observed to be complexed with components of the extracellular matrix (especially LDL and proteoglycans). The role of these matrix-lipoprotein complexes is not entirely clear, however, animal models of atherosclerosis have shown that increased cellular proliferation and increased production of extracellular matrix components occur following injury to the intimal layer of the aorta.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab7614 in the following tested applications.

  • FunctionParticipates in the reverse transport of cholesterol from tissues to the liver for excretion by promoting cholesterol efflux from tissues and by acting as a cofactor for the lecithin cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT). As part of the SPAP complex, activates spermatozoa motility.
  • Tissue specificityMajor protein of plasma HDL, also found in chylomicrons. Synthesized in the liver and small intestine.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in APOA1 are a cause of high density lipoprotein deficiency type 2 (HDLD2) [MIM:604091]; also known as familial hypoalphalipoproteinemia (FHA). Inheritance is autosomal dominant.
    Defects in APOA1 are a cause of the low HDL levels observed in high density lipoprotein deficiency type 1 (HDLD1) [MIM:205400]; also known as analphalipoproteinemia or Tangier disease (TGD). HDLD1 is a recessive disorder characterized by the absence of plasma HDL, accumulation of cholesteryl esters, premature coronary artery disease, hepatosplenomegaly, recurrent peripheral neuropathy and progressive muscle wasting and weakness. In HDLD1 patients, ApoA-I fails to associate with HDL probably because of the faulty conversion of pro-ApoA-I molecules into mature chains, either due to a defect in the converting enzyme activity or a specific structural defect in Tangier ApoA-I.
    Defects in APOA1 are the cause of amyloid polyneuropathy-nephropathy Iowa type (AMYLIOWA) [MIM:107680]; also known as amyloidosis van Allen type or familial amyloid polyneuropathy type III. AMYLIOWA is a hereditary generalized amyloidosis due to deposition of amyloid mainly constituted by apolipoprotein A1. The clinical picture is dominated by neuropathy in the early stages of the disease and nephropathy late in the course. Death is due in most cases to renal amyloidosis. Severe peptic ulcer disease can occurr in some and hearing loss is frequent. Cataracts is present in several, but vitreous opacities are not observed.
    Defects in APOA1 are a cause of amyloidosis type 8 (AMYL8) [MIM:105200]; also known as systemic non-neuropathic amyloidosis or Ostertag-type amyloidosis. AMYL8 is a hereditary generalized amyloidosis due to deposition of apolipoprotein A1, fibrinogen and lysozyme amyloids. Viscera are particularly affected. There is no involvement of the nervous system. Clinical features include renal amyloidosis resulting in nephrotic syndrome, arterial hypertension, hepatosplenomegaly, cholestasis, petechial skin rash.

  • ab7614 staining Apolipoprotein A I in mouse liver tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue underwent formaldehyde fixation before enzymatic antigen retrieval with Proteinase K and then blocking with 2% BSA for 20 minutes was performed. The primary antibody was diluted 1/6000 and incubated with sample for 24 hours at 4°C in 1% BSA. A Biotin conjugated goat polyclonal to rabbit IgG was used at dilution at 1/200 as secondary antibody.

Thank you for your enquiry. We would suggest performing a regular sandwich ELISA protocol.If you need anything further or any help then please let us know.

Thank you for your enquiry. The immunogen is from mouse that's why the antibody recognizes mouse Apolipoprotein A I.

Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately, the purified Apolipoprotein A I protein which has been used is not commercially available.
