Technical Data
Lipocalin 2 (HNL, NGAL, Neutrophil Gelatinase Associated Lipocalin, Oncogene 24p3, Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin precursor P25, alpha-2 microglobulin-related subunit of MMP-9)
Mouse neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL; also called lipocalin 2, 24p3, SIP24, uterocalin and siderocalin) is a member of the lipocalin family of proteins which bind and transport small lipophilic molecules. 24p3 was observed to be dramatically upregulated in kidney cell cultures infected with SV40 (1) and subsequently identified as a lipocalin (2). Unlike human NGAL, it is an acute phase protein upregulated in the liver (3), but like its mammalian homologues it is upregulated and secreted by the kidney in response to ischemic or nephrotoxic injury (4). It is also upregulated in the involuting uterus and mammary gland (5).

Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
