Application Abreviews Notes
ELISA 1/6000.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for WB.
  • Target

    • Function

      Storage protein of egg white. Lack protease inhibitory activity.
    • Tissue specificity

      Major protein of egg white.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the serpin family. Ov-serpin subfamily.
    • Post-translational

      The signal sequence is not cleaved. The functional signal for membrane translocation of ovalbumin becomes accessible when the nascent chain is 50 to 60 residues long. The hydrophobic sequence which lies between residues 27 and 43 folds back on the preceding residues to form an amphipathic hairpin structure which is the signal element recognized by the membrane.

    Ab17291 and ab17293 are specific for denatured (heat, reduced or surface-bound) ovalbumin. Tested in inhibition ELISA, the two antibodies do not react with the exact same epitope, but are slightly overlapping. From the dilution guidelines, it is seen that ab17291 seems to be slightly stronger than the ab17293 in affinity. Ab17290 and ab17292 are specific for native ovalbumin. Tested in inhibition ELISA, the two antibodies do not react with the exact same epitope, but are slightly overlapping. From the dilution guidelines, it is seen that the ab17292 seems to be the antibody with the highest affinity. If you have any additional questions, please contact us again.
