LOX-1 belongs to the C-type lectin-like protein superfamily. This unique scavenger receptor plays important roles in atherogenesis. Like other scavenger receptors, LOX-1 has a wide spectrum of physiological ligands, including OxLDL, anionic phospholipids, aged/apoptotic cells, activated platelets, and bacteria. The LOX-1 gene is a so-called immediate early gene that is dynamically modulated by several factors in vitro and in vivo. LOX-1 expression is induced by stimuli such as inflammatory cytokines, OxLDL, TNF-alpha, TGF-beta, and ANG II in vitro, and several proatherogenic factors in vivo. Monoclonal antibody neutralizes LOX-1 and inhibits Hsp70 binding to dendritic cells and Hsp70-induced antigen cross-presentation. In vivo, targeting LOX-1 with a tumor antigen using anti-LOX-1 antibody induces antitumor immunity.

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

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

Sp2/0 myeloma cells with spleen cells from Balb/c mice.

Storage and Stability:

May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. 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.
