Technical Data
Lipoprotein, Low Density, Acetylated, Human (LDL)
Molecular Biology Storage: 4C Do Not FreezeShipping: Blue Ice
Acetylated Low Density Lipoprotein (AcLDL) is taken up by cells via scavenger receptors and has been used as a mechanism of targeted drug delivery and in combination with saporin for the depletion of specific cell types. AcLDL behaves like oxidised LDL, both of which are degraded within lysosomes.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

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