Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B
ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter genes are involved in the regulation of the amount of dietary cholesterol retained in the body. ABCG8, expressed at high levels in the liver and intestine, normally cooperates with ABCG5 to limit intestinal absorption and promote biliary excretion of sterols. The mutated form of this transporter can lead to sterol accumulation and atherosclerosis or sitosterolemia, a rare autosomal recessive disorder, characterized by hyperabsorption of sterols and the inability to excrete sterols into bile.
Catalog #A0004-10
Application(s)
A doublet is seen at ~67 and ~72kD in Western analysis. Longer exposure times are needed to visualize the wild type ABCG8.
Recommended DilutionWestern Blot -1:250 (ECL)
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and add glycerol (40-50%). Freeze at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
