AGP1 (Alpha-1-acid Glycoprotein 1, AGP 1, Orosomucoid-1, OMD 1, ORM1)
Description:
a1-Acid Glycoprotein (AGP; also OMD/Orosomucoid) is a 40-46kD member of the immunocalin subfamily, lipocalin family of molecules. In mouse, circulating AGP is principally the product of hepatocytes that originates from multiple related genes (AGP-1, -2 and -3 in Mus musculus). Circulating AGP-1 and -2 are both 189aa in length, the principal sources of protein, and show 83% aa identity; AGP-3 contributes little to the AGP pool. In mouse blood, AGP is normally 200-400ug/ml. In response to inflammatory mediators (IL-6; IL-1), its concentration will rise 2-10 fold. More importantly, a complex glycosylation pattern will also change, transitioning from modestly branched to highly branched oligosaccharides. This change is reflected in its bioactivity, which has been shown to be a function of carbohydrate branching. AGP is generally considered to be a suppressor of inflammation.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin fixed paraffin embedded): 5ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
