  • RelevanceN epsilon carboxymethyl lysine (CML or Carboxymethyl Lysine) is formed by the non enzymatic Schiff base reaction of glucose with proteins, followed by an Amadori rearrangement and oxidation that leaves only a carboxymethyl group attached to the lysine. The levels of CML adducts accumulate over time and have been used as an indicator of both serum glucose levels and oxidative protein damage. Elevated serum CML modified proteins have been associated with diabetes and may contribute to diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy and angiopathy.

  • ab30917 staining Carboxymethyl Lysine in Human skin tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formalin and embedded in paraffin. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/125 in PBS + 1% BSA) for overnight at 4°C. A Biotin-conjugated secondary was used with DAB visualisation the samples were then counterstained with haematoxylin.

I'm sorry I was not clearer in my explanation. Both ab30917 and ab30922 should be suitable for you experiment. The reason why we sometimes have what seems to be duplicates within our catalogue is that in order to make sure we have a continuous supply o...
