  • RelevanceLipid-transfer proteins (LTP) are basic, 9-kDa proteins present in high amounts (as much as 4% of the total soluble proteinss) in higher plants. LTPs can enhance the in vitro transfer of phospholipids between membranes and can bind acyl chains. On the basis of these properties, LTPs were thought to participate in membrane biogenesis and regulation of the intracellular fatty acid pools. However, the isolation of several cDNAs and genes revealed the presence of a signal peptide indicating that LTPs could enter the secretory pathway. They were found to be secreted and located in the cell wall. Thus, novel roles were suggested for plant LTPs: participation in cutin formation, embryogenesis, defense reactions against phytopathogens, symbiosis, and the adaptation of plants to various environmental conditions. The validity of these suggestions needs to be determined, in the hope that they will elucidate the role of this puzzling family of plant proteins. Barley LTP1 has been shown to play a role in beer foam stabilization.

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    I can confirm that ab53538 was raised against the first 15 amino acids of the mature
    protein and not the signal peptide.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    This antibody has not been validated for use in WB, but it may be suitable for that purpose. Based on the purity of the antibody, I would recommend at least a 1:500 dilution and an overnight incubation at 4C....
