The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 39 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionMay play a role in lipid exchange and transport throughout the body. May participate in reverse cholesterol transport from peripheral cells to the liver.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed; the highest levels are in spinal cord, placenta, adrenal gland; also detected in spleen, bone marrow, uterus, trachea, mammary gland and testis; levels are low in brain, heart and pancreas.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the apolipoprotein L family.
