Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B
Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL; also called lipocalin 2, siderocalin and neutrophil lipocalin) is a member of the lipocalin family of proteins which bind and transport small lipophilic molecules. NGAL is released by activated neutrophils and occurs as 25kD glycosylated single protein chain monomers, which form dimers and small amounts of higher oligomers, as well as complexes with matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9; gelatinase B) (1). Low level expression of NGAL in a variety of epithelia may be increased in inflammation or cancers (2). The expression and release of NGAL from renal tubules are dramatically increased by ischemic or nephrotoxic injury (3).
Catalog #L2499-17E
Neutrophil Gelatinase Associated Lipocalin (NGAL) belongs to a family of lipocans which include 25 proteins (including alpha1-microglobulin and beta-lactoglobulin), which are characterized by their ability to bind small lipophilic substances in their hydrophobic core. They thereby serve as transporters of substances like retinal, biliverdins & prostaglandins. There are indications that NGAL is involved in modulation of the inflammatory response and is found in the plasma of patients after stroke. Human neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL), and its mouse analog 24p3, are members of the lipocalin family of small secreted proteins. These proteins are up-regulated in a number of pathological conditions, including cancers, and may function as transporters of essential factors.
ApplicationsSuitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot. Not suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionELISA (as capture antibody): 1:30,000 (recombinant human NGAL coated directly at 0.8mg/ml.). Forms a sandwich pair with L2499-16 (as biotinylated detection antibody) for measuring cynomolgus monkey (Macaca fascicularis) and binds human NGAL in solution.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
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.
