Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Serum E B
Serum amyloid P component or SAP or APCS, or PTX2 (mature chain 204 aa, chromosome 1q21-23) with which CRP has about 59% homology, is situated in the same area of chromosome 1. SAP is universally present in amyloid deposits, senile plaque and neurofibrially tangels in Alzheimer’s patients. SAP levels in CSF can be useful for assessing cognitive impairment in AD patients. However, SAP appeared not to be required for A-beta deposition since no endogenous SAP immunoreactivity was found in mice overexpressing APP.
In mice with a targeted deletion of the SAP gene, induction of reactive amyloidosis was retarded, demonstrating the participation of SAP in pathogenesis of amyloidosis in vivo and confirming that inhibition of SAP binding to amyloid fibrils is an attractive therapeutic target. SAP knock out mice develop antinuclear autoimmunity and glomerulonephritis. However the exact role of SAP in SLE is not clear. SAP also neutralizes LPS and it is potentially useful in defense against serious gram-negative sepsis.
