Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 4 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 35 kDa.


  • Function

    Mediates the endocytosis of plasma glycoproteins to which the terminal sialic acid residue on their complex carbohydrate moieties has been removed. The receptor recognizes terminal galactose and N-acetylgalactosamine units. After ligand binding to the receptor, the resulting complex is internalized and transported to a sorting organelle, where receptor and ligand are disassociated. The receptor then returns to the cell membrane surface.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed exclusively in hepatic parenchymal cells.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 C-type lectin domain.

Thank you for contacting us. Because we carry over 95,000 products, it isn't feasible for us to keep small sample sizes of our products.

We are happy to reassure our customers that all of our products are covered by our Abpromise, which guarantees that the product will work in the applications and species specified on the datasheet, or we will offer a replacement, credit, or refund within 6 months of purchase.

If the product is to be used in an untested species or application, you may be eligible for our testing discount program if the antibody has not yet been purchased.

As with ab77032 I can also offer youto take part in our Abreviewtesting discount program for ab37470.

I personally would suggest to test ab77032 since this antibody was used in ELISA before.

Please contact our Scientific Support team by replying to this email prior to purchase for more information.

Otherwise, we like to encourage all of our customers to submit an Abreview via the online product datasheet. We always appreciate customer feedback, whether positive or negative, and we make all product information available to researchers. Plus, each Abreview earns Abpoints that can be used for discounts on future purchases or rewards such as Amazon.com gift certificates.

Thank you for your enquiry and patience while I researched your inquiry. ab37470 will detect all three isoforms of Asialoglycoprotein Rec. 2. I have updated the datasheet to reflect this. To date this antibody has only been tested for application by western blotting and is yet to be tested for neutralising activity. Unfortunately the immunogen sequence for this antibody is commercially sensitive. I hope this information helps, please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
