SAA Mouse anti-Human, Mouse, Clone: Reu86.1, Invitrogen
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Invitrogen MA140180
MA1-40180 detects SAA from human and mouse samples. MA1-40180 is raised against human SAA and Helix Pomatia Haemocyanine. It reacts specifically with SAA-1, the major isoform of SAA in plasma. MA1-40180 has been successfully used in immunohistochemistry (frozen and paraffin), western blot, and immunoassay applications. It is recommended that users test the reagent and determine their own optimal dillutions. The MA1-40180 immunogen is human SAA.The serum amyloid A (SAA) family comprises a number of differentially expressed lipoproteins, acute-phase SAA1 and SAA2, the former being a major component in plasma, and constitutive SAA ft.s (C-SAAs). Although the liver is the primary site of synthesis of both SAA types, extrhepatic production has been reported. The in-vivo concentrations increase by as much as 1000 fold during inflammation. Expression studies show production of SAA proteins in histologically normal, atherosclerotic, Alzheimer, inflammatory, and tumor tissues. SAA has been found to have binding sites for high density lipoproteins, calcium, laminin, and heparin/heparan-sulfate. Also adhesion motifs were identified and new functions, affecting cell adhesion, migration, proliferation and aggregation discovered. These findings emphasize the importance of SAA in various physiological and pathological processes, including inflammation, atherosclerosis, thrombosis, AAamyloidosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and neoplasia. SAA has also a number of immunomodulatory roles, it can induce chemotaxis and adhesion molecule expression, has cytokine-like properties and can promote the upregulation of metalloproteinases. It enhances the binding of high-density lipoprotein to macrophages and thus helps in the delivery of lipids to sites of injury for use in tissue repair. Elevated levels of SAA over time predispose to secondary amyloidosis, extracellular accumulation of amyloid fibrils, derived from a circulating precursor, in various tissue and organs.
