AHP2108 specifically recognises an epitope within the N-terminal (NT) region of human DPM1, otherwise known as dolichol-phosphate mannosyltransferase, a member of the glycosyltransferase 2 family, expressed in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER).
DPM1 is involved in the formation of dolichol phosphate mannose (Dol-P-Man), through the transfer of mannose from GDP-mannose to dolichol monophosphate. Dol-P-Man then acts as a mannosyl donor for protein N-glycosylation, glycosyl phosphatidylinositol membrane anchoring, and O-mannosylation. Defects in DPM1 are responsible for the congenital disorder known as glycosylation type 1E (CDG1E), a metabolic deficiency in glycoprotein biosynthesis, resulting in severe mental and psychomotor retardation.
Purified IgG - liquid
Antiserum to human DPM1 (NT) was raised by repeated immunisation of goats with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared by affinity chromatography.
