  • Function
    Major acute phase reactant. Apolipoprotein of the HDL complex.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed by the liver; secreted in plasma.
  • Involvement in disease
    Note=Reactive, secondary amyloidosis is characterized by the extracellular accumulation in various tissues of the SAA protein. These deposits are highly insoluble and resistant to proteolysis; they disrupt tissue structure and compromise function.
    Note=Elevated serum SSA protein levels may be associated with lung cancer.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the SAA family.
  • Post-translational
    This protein is the precursor of amyloid protein A, which is formed by the removal of approximately 24 residues from the C-terminal end.

Thank you for your email.

Finally, I have checked the sequence homology between human and horse SAA proteins, the homology is quite low with matching stretches. Read More

Thank you for contacting us.

We can recommend paring between ab687 and ab18711 instead of ab18713 Read More

Thank you for contacting us. The antibody ab687 is reactive towards the Serum Amyloid A protein and not specific variants.. We do not have any antibodies specific for SAA1,SAA2 or SAA4.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not ...

Unfortunately, because we use the entire, intact protein antigen to raise the antibodies, we have no way of knowing whether the antibody is directed at the SAA carboxy terminus.
