  • Species reactivity

    Reacts with: Mouse
  • Immunogen

    Full length native apoLipoprotein Type A-I (purified).

  • General notes

    This antibody has been used to determine that atherosclerotic lesions in the human aorta contain considerable amounts of lipoproteins. These lipoproteins were observed to be complexed with components of the extracellular matrix (especially LDL and proteoglycans). The role of these matrix-lipoprotein complexes is not entirely clear, however, animal models of atherosclerosis have shown that increased cellular proliferation and increased production of extracellular matrix components occur following injury to the intimal layer of the aorta.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab7614 in the following tested applications.

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

  • Function

    Participates in the reverse transport of cholesterol from tissues to the liver for excretion by promoting cholesterol efflux from tissues and by acting as a cofactor for the lecithin cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT). As part of the SPAP complex, activates spermatozoa motility.
  • Tissue specificity

    Major protein of plasma HDL, also found in chylomicrons. Synthesized in the liver and small intestine.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in APOA1 are a cause of high density lipoprotein deficiency type 2 (HDLD2) [MIM:604091]; also known as familial hypoalphalipoproteinemia (FHA). Inheritance is autosomal dominant.
    Defects in APOA1 are a cause of the low HDL levels observed in high density lipoprotein deficiency type 1 (HDLD1) [MIM:205400]; also known as analphalipoproteinemia or Tangier disease (TGD). HDLD1 is a recessive disorder characterized by the absence of plasma HDL, accumulation of cholesteryl esters, premature coronary artery disease, hepatosplenomegaly, recurrent peripheral neuropathy and progressive muscle wasting and weakness. In HDLD1 patients, ApoA-I fails to associate with HDL probably because of the faulty conversion of pro-ApoA-I molecules into mature chains, either due to a defect in the converting enzyme activity or a specific structural defect in Tangier ApoA-I.
    Defects in APOA1 are the cause of amyloid polyneuropathy-nephropathy Iowa type (AMYLIOWA) [MIM:107680]; also known as amyloidosis van Allen type or familial amyloid polyneuropathy type III. AMYLIOWA is a hereditary generalized amyloidosis due to deposition of amyloid mainly constituted by apolipoprotein A1. The clinical picture is dominated by neuropathy in the early stages of the disease and nephropathy late in the course. Death is due in most cases to renal amyloidosis. Severe peptic ulcer disease can occurr in some and hearing loss is frequent. Cataracts is present in several, but vitreous opacities are not observed.
    Defects in APOA1 are a cause of amyloidosis type 8 (AMYL8) [MIM:105200]; also known as systemic non-neuropathic amyloidosis or Ostertag-type amyloidosis. AMYL8 is a hereditary generalized amyloidosis due to deposition of apolipoprotein A1, fibrinogen and lysozyme amyloids. Viscera are particularly affected. There is no involvement of the nervous system. Clinical features include renal amyloidosis resulting in nephrotic syndrome, arterial hypertension, hepatosplenomegaly, cholestasis, petechial skin rash.

BATCH NUMBER 57140 ORDER NUMBER 58914 DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM The antibody did not stain specific protein in arterial tissue (immunhistochemistry of formalin fixed tissue), in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (cytospin of native cells) nor in plasma (western blot). The only detectable signal in the tissue was in leukocytes (presumably false positive peroxidase signal). Simultaneously we used your antibody against ApoB100 (ab7616) which worked perfectly fine, both in tissue and in the western blot. SAMPLE human arterial tissue, liver and kidney. human plasma human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) PRIMARY ANTIBODY tissue: ab7614; 10?g/ml (1:100; 1: 50 and 1:200 were also tested) in Antibody diluent (DAKO S2022); 1h RT Western blot: ab7614; 1?g/ml 5% fat free milk/TBS, 1h RT wash: tissue 2x in PBS; Western blot 3x in TBS. SECONDARY ANTIBODY tissue: Medite, NCL-RTU-Qu. Novostain Universal Quick kit, 30min RT Western blot: peroxidase conjugated rabbit anti goat DAKO (P0449) 0.1?g/ml in 5% fat-free milk/TBS; 1h RT wash: tissue 2x in PBS; Western blot 3x in TBS. DETECTION METHOD tissue: DAB (DAKO K3468) western blot: super signal West Pico kit (Pierce 1856135 + 1856136) POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE CONTROLS USED Plasma contains known amount of ApoA1 (1.5mg/ml) as a positive control tissue we used liver. we did not use purified protein nor deficiency plasma. ANTIBODY STORAGE CONDITIONS after arrival, 5 aliquots (20?l) were pipeted and stored frozen at -20? after thawing one aliquot for usage, the ab stored at 4? and not refrozen. the interval between antibody arrival and aliquotation was 5 days and the first aliquot was immediately. FIXATION OF SAMPLE tissues were fixed in 4% phosphate buffered formalin plasma and PBMC were used unfixed ANTIGEN RETRIEVAL used only for formalin fixed tissues: proteinase K was used according to the manufacturer's description (DAKO S3020) alternatively we tried citrate buffer in heat pressure chamber but this resulted in high background staining PERMEABILIZATION STEP The only procedure were permeabilization was used was in cytospin preps of PBMCs. We used 0.1% saponin in PBS-FCS. BLOCKING CONDITIONS for tissue: Medite, normal horse serum, NCL-H-serum, ready for use for western blot: 5% fat free milk in TBS (pH 7.4) for cytospin: 1% BSA-1%FCS in PBS (pH 7.4) HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU TRIED THE APPLICATION? >10 HAVE YOU RUN A "NO PRIMARY" CONTROL? Yes DO YOU OBTAIN THE SAME RESULTS EVERY TIME? Yes WHAT STEPS HAVE YOU ALTERED? primary antibody dilution alternative detection approaches such as western blot. different presumably positive tissues. more 300 arterial specimens were stained and were negative ! we ordered a second antibody lot ! ADDITIONAL NOTES Since we are very interested in the reliable detection of apolipoprotein A1 in arterial tissues we are looking forward to your suggestions.

Thank you for your enquiry and for taking your time to fill in the on-line Questionnaire. We are very sorry to hear that you are having problem with this antibody. We have searched our database and found that this is a popular selling product and your feedback is the first we have received about it not working. We would like to emphasize the fact that this antibody has been tested for cross-reaction only with mouse but other species have not been characterized yet. Therefore, unfortunately, we do not know if it recognizes human Apolipoprotein A I. We would suggest using mouse samples as positive control along with the human samples to make sure that the detection system works properly. Since you are using this antibody on human samples which has not been tested yet, we would appreciate any feedback information about your results which we could share with our present and future customers. Please let us know how you get on, and in return we will award you 50 points with the Abcam Loyalty Scheme which can be redeemed on a number of rewards. We hope this information will be useful for you.
