Goat anti Human lipocalin-2 antibody recognizes human Lipocalin-2 (LCN2), otherwise known as Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL), a secreted glycoprotein and member of the Lipocalin family, which is highly expressed in the bone marrow, lungs, stomach, liver and adipose tissue, and is implicated in innate immunity and apoptosis.
LCN2 acts as a protein transporter, through the binding of small lipophilic substances in the hydrophobic core. Expression of LCN2 is up-regulated during inflammation, and plays an important role in the innate immune response, by binding to bacterial iron-containing siderophores, limiting bacterial growth.
Purified IgG - liquid
Antiserum to human LCN2 was raised by repeated immunisation of with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared by affinity chromatography.
0.02% Sodium Azide (NaN3) 0.5% Bovine Serum Albumin
Synthetic peptide sequence C-AILREDKDPQKMY from the internal region of LCN2 (NP_005555.2).
