The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 60 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 45 kDa).
Is unsuitable for ICC,IHC-P or IP.
Major transport protein for glucocorticoids and progestins in the blood of almost all vertebrate species.
Plasma; synthesized in liver. Has also been identified in a number of glycocorticoid responsive cells.
Involvement in disease
Defects in SERPINA6 are a cause of corticosteroid-binding globulin deficiency (CBG deficiency) [MIM:611489]. CBG deficiency is an extremely rare hereditary disorder characterized by reduced corticosteroid-binding capacity with normal or low plasma corticosteroid-binding globulin concentration, and normal or low basal cortisol levels associated with hypo/hypertension and muscle fatigue.
Belongs to the serpin family.
N-glycosylated; binds 5 oligosaccharide chains. Glycosylation in position Asn-260 is needed for steroid binding.
