  • Function

    This protein is, quantitatively, the main protein synthesized and secreted in the endometrium from mid-luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and during the first semester of pregnancy.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Lipocalin family.
  • Post-translational

    At least two differentially glycosylated forms are found. Glycodelin-A (GdA) (amniotic fluid) with contraceptive and immunosuppressive activities and glycodelin-S (Gds) (seminal plasma) whose role is not yet known. The gender-specific glycosylation may serve to regulate key process involved in human reproduction.

Thank you for contacting us.

Yes, in addition to the primary antibody, only a secondary antibody is needed.

I can recommend a couple secondariesthat are HRP-conjugated:

Thank you for contacting us.

This antibody ab17247 has so far only been tested in indirect ELISA (coating the sample to the plate, and then using primary and secondary antibodies). It has not been tried in sandwich ELISA, thus, we do not have a specific antibody pair that was tested.

None of the other anti-Placental Protein 14 / Glycodelin A antibodies have been tested for ELISA and human samples, but if the customer would like to try one of these antibodies together with ab17247 in a sandwich ELISA, they can use our testing discount program:

For UNTESTED species and/or applications, we have established a testing discount program. Here is a brief description of how it works:

The testing discount program is for customers who like to use an antibody/protein/kit on an untested species/application. You would purchase the antibody/protein/kit at full price, test it and submit an Abreview with your data (positive or negative). On your next order you will receive a discount for ONE antibody/protein at the full price (100%) of the antibody/protein you have tested, or a full price discount for the amount paid for the kit. The terms and conditions applicable to this offer can be found here: https://www.abcam.com/collaborationdiscount.
This programapplies to ELISA kits and other kits we offer.

Please let me know if the customer would be interested in this.
