This antibody was generated against the C-terminal region of human ApoA1.Apolipoprotein A-1, also known as APOA1, is a human protein with a specific role in lipid metabolism. It binds to lipopolysaccharide or endotoxin, and has a major role in the anti-endotoxin function of HDL. The gene is mapped to 11q23. And it is a single polypeptide chain with 243 amino acid residues of known primary amino acid sequence. The ApoA-I protein promotes cholesterol efflux from tissues to the liver for excretion. It is a cofactor for lecithin cholesterolacyltransferase (LCAT) which is responsible for the formation of most plasma cholesteryl esters. ApoA-I is also isolated as a prostacyclin (PGI2) stabilizing factor, and thus may have an anticlotting effect. Defects in the gene encoding it are associated with HDL deficiencies, including Tangier disease, and with systemic non-neuropathic amyloidosis. Additionally, ApoA-I overexpression promotes macrophage-specific reverse cholesterol transport.
