Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab50068 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • FormLiquid
  • Additional notes

    - First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions.
    - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer.
    - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent.
    - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised.
    - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

  • FunctionApolipoprotein 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 diseaseHypobetalipoproteinemia, familial, 1
    Familial ligand-defective apolipoprotein B-100
    Defects in APOB associated with defects in other genes (polygenic) can contribute to hypocholesterolemia.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 vitellogenin domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Palmitoylated; structural requirement for proper assembly of the hydrophobic core of the lipoprotein particle.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Secreted.
