Technical Data
Lipoprotein, Low Density, Oxidized, Human (LDL)
Molecular Biology Storage: 4C Do Not FreezeShipping: Blue Ice
Low density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidative modification is one of the major processes involved in atherosclerosis along with other degenerative disorders. Oxidised LDL is preferentially accumulated by macrophages which become so called "foam cells" within the atheromatous plaque and contributes to the accumulation of cholesterol, typical of atherosclerosis.

Suitable for use in Functional Assays. Other applications not tested.

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

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at 4C. Do not freeze. Aliquots are stable for 4 weeks after receipt. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial prior to removing the cap.
Source: Human plasma
Purity: Purified to homogeneity by ultra-centrifugation. Oxidized using 20uM cupric sulfate in PBS at 37C for 24 hours. Oxidation is terminated with excess EDTA. The level of oxidation is measured using TBARS (Thiobarbituric acid reactive substances) determination using a Malondialdehyde (MDA) standard.
Concentration: ~2mg/ml
