  • Function
    Ceruloplasmin is a blue, copper-binding (6-7 atoms per molecule) glycoprotein. It has ferroxidase activity oxidizing Fe(2+) to Fe(3+) without releasing radical oxygen species. It is involved in iron transport across the cell membrane.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed by the liver and secreted in plasma.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in CP are the cause of aceruloplasminemia (ACERULOP) [MIM:604290]. It is an autosomal recessive disorder of iron metabolism characterized by iron accumulation in the brain as well as visceral organs. Clinical features consist of the triad of retinal degeneration, diabetes mellitus and neurological disturbances.
    Note=Ceruloplasmin levels are decreased in Wilson disease, in which copper cannot be incorporated into ceruloplasmin in liver because of defects in the copper-transporting ATPase 2.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the multicopper oxidase family.
    Contains 3 F5/8 type A domains.
    Contains 6 plastocyanin-like domains.

  • ab110449 staining ceruloplasmin in astroglial cells from rat by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence).  Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.3% Triton X-100 in 0.1% PBS and blocked with 10% serum for 30 minutes at 24°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody for 4 hours at 24°C. An undiluted Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated Donkey polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.

Thank you for your comment.

Before offering a testing discount for new species, our Scientific Team need to check the sequence homology to see if the cross-reactivity is expected or not.

If the homology is higher than 95%, then there is normally high chance for cross-reactivity. For this case, the homology is below 90%,so it is unlikely that ab110449 recognizes porcine Ceruloplasmin.

If you need any further assistance in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for the reply.

I have checked the sequence homology between human and pig (Sus scrofa) and it is only 87%. This means that the probability of this antibody to recognize pig (porcine) Ceruloplasmin is low. Please advise your customer to consult the following websites for further information:

Gracias po contactarnos.

En principio no habría ningún problema para conjugar estos anticuerpos. Lo que si es necesario tener en cuenta es que el kit de conjugación sea compatible con los buffers y aditivos en los que conserva el anticuerpo.
Ignoro si disponéis de un kit de conjugación de anticuerpos, si os hiciera falta existen en nuestro catálogo los kits EasyLink para llevar a cabo la conjugación de anticuerpos con distintas enzimas o fluorocromos.
En el apartado correspondiente a las cuestiones técnicas del uso de estos kits encontrarás los buffers compatibles con los reactivos del kit, así como cuestiones relativas a la purificación y la concentración del anticuerpo que resultan útiles antes de usarlos.
En el primero de los links indicado hay a su vez links directos a los kits de conjugación EasyLink tanto con HRP como con AP.
Espero que esta información te sea útil, de lo contrario, por favor no dudes en volver a contactarnos.
