Dilution optimised using Chromogenic detection. Can be used for detection of Apo B-100 in plasma and lipoproteins.
1/4000 - 1/40000.
Apolipoprotein B is a major protein constituent of chylomicrons (apo B-48), LDL (apo B-100) and VLDL (apo B-100). Apo B-100 functions as a recognition signal for the cellular binding and internalization of LDL particles by the apoB/E receptor.
Involvement in disease
Hypobetalipoproteinemia, familial, 1 Familial ligand-defective apolipoprotein B-100 Defects in APOB associated with defects in other genes (polygenic) can contribute to hypocholesterolemia.
Contains 1 vitellogenin domain.
Palmitoylated; structural requirement for proper assembly of the hydrophobic core of the lipoprotein particle.
