Target

  • Function
    Major structural protein of tissues such as aorta and nuchal ligament, which must expand rapidly and recover completely. Molecular determinant of the late arterial morphogenesis, stabilizing arterial structure by regulating proliferation and organization of vascular smooth muscle.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed within the outer myometrial smooth muscle and throughout the arteriolar tree of uterus (at protein level). Also expressed in the large arteries, lung and skin.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in ELN are a cause of autosomal dominant cutis laxa (ADCL) [MIM:123700]. Cutis laxa is a rare connective tissue disorder characterized by loose, hyperextensible skin with decreased resilience and elasticity leading to a premature aged appearance. The skin changes are often accompanied by extracutaneous manifestations, including pulmonary emphysema, bladder diverticula, pulmonary artery stenosis and pyloric stenosis.
    Defects in ELN are the cause of supravalvular aortic stenosis (SVAS) [MIM:185500]. SVAS is a congenital narrowing of the ascending aorta which can occur sporadically, as an autosomal dominant condition, or as one component of Williams-Beuren syndrome.
    Note=ELN is located in the Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) critical region. WBS results from a hemizygous deletion of several genes on chromosome 7q11.23, thought to arise as a consequence of unequal crossing over between highly homologous low-copy repeat sequences flanking the deleted region. Haploinsufficiency of ELN may be the cause of certain cardiovascular and musculo-skeletal abnormalities observed in the disease.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the elastin family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Elastin is formed through the cross-linking of its soluble precursor tropoelastin. Cross-linking is initiated through the action of lysyl oxidase on exposed lysines to form allysine. Subsequent spontaneous condensation reactions with other allysine or unmodified lysine residues result in various bi-, tri-, and tetrafunctional cross-links. The most abundant cross-links in mature elastin fibers are lysinonorleucine, allysine aldol, desmosine, and isodesmosine.
    Hydroxylation on proline residues within the sequence motif, GXPG, is most likely 4-hydroxy as this fits the requirement for 4-hydroxylation in vertebrates.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix. Extracellular matrix of elastic fibers.

Question
Answer

Thank you for your enquiry.

I can confirm that ab21640 and ab9519 are sold as whole antiseruma and ascites respectively. Unpurified antibodies, such as these sold as whole antiserum, ascites or tissue culture supernatant will not have a concentration stated on the datasheet. Antibody concentration is usually determined by protein assay, and serum / ascites / tissue culture supernatant will contain a lot of other proteins, which means the antibody quantification would not be accurate.

I can confirm that for whole antiserum, concentration of antibody is known to very between 1 - 10 mg/ml, while the Anti-Elastin antibody [BA-4] (ab9519) is estimated to be around 0.1-0.2 mg/mL.

I am sorry we are not able to provide an exact concentration on this occasion, but hope this information will be helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Question
Answer

Vielen Dank für Ihren Anruf.


Ich habe einen Proteinsequenz Vergleich zwischen den Immunogenen derMaus Klone [BA-4] und[10B8] (ab9519, ab97963und ab77804)durchgeführt, und folgendes hat sich ergeben: Die Übereinstimmung zwischen dem Immunogen und demRatten Protein beträgt höchstens%. Damit ein Antikörper kreuzreagiert, sollte die Übereinstimmung mindestens 85% betragen. Es daher unwahrscheinlich, dass diese Antikörper IhrZielproteindetektieren werden.

Allerdings haben wir einen polyklonalenKaninchen Antikörper, der sowohl an der Ratte als auch in der ICC getestet wurde und dazu noch eine hohe Spezifität aufweist.

Answer

Thank you for taking time to complete our questionnaire and for contacting us. I am sorry to hear this antibody is not providing satisfactory results. The details provided will enable us to investigate this case and will provide us with vital information for monitoring product quality. I appreciate the time you have spent in the laboratory and understand your concerns. It is regrettable the results have not been successful. With this specific antibody it has been shown that the method of antigen retrieval can be crucial in its performance and enzymatic retrieval is the most efficient. However, having reviewed the protocol details, I believe this product should have given satisfactory results with the methods used and unfortunately cannot find any additional suggestions to make. May I ask, did the positive control you carried out with the pericardium also give a negative result? It appears that you may have received a faulty vial of this antibody. I apologise for the inconvenience caused by this and would like to offer you a free of charge replacement of this antibody with a different lot or if this is unsatisfactory I can offer a credit note. In order to process this can you please let me know the original order number, the date on which it was placed or the address used to process it. Thank you for your cooperation. I look forward to hearing from you with details of how you would like to proceed.

Thanks for your reply. I'm sorry but the specific enzyme used for antigen retrieval with ab9519 is not known. I think it would be useful to try pepsin or trypsin as well. Also, what type of sample tissue are you working with?
