    • Sheep anti LOX-1 antibody recognizes the type II membrane glycoprotein LOX-1 (lectin-like oxidized LDL receptor-1), a 40-50kDa class E scavenger receptor, expressed by endothelial cells, macrophages, activated platelets and smooth muscle cells. LOX-1 binds to a wide range of ligands, including oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL), hypochlorite modified high-density lipoprotein (HDL), aged/apoptotic cells, activated platelets and bacteria, reflecting its versatile physiological functions.

      AHP952 will detect LOX-1 on transfected cells and in recombinant protein reconstitution assays. LOX-1 levels are low in normal resting human tissues so may fall below detectable levels.

      Expression of the LOX-1 gene is upregulated by oxLDL and the binding of LOX-1 to oxLDL results in the activation of NF-kappaB. Furthermore, LOX-1 antibodies have been shown to suppress the oxidized HDL (oxHDL) activation of NF-KappaB in endothelial cells, suggesting that this activation may be due to the binding of oxHDL to LOX-1.

      Angiotensin II and the inflammatory cytokine Tumour Necrosis Factor alpha (TNFalpha) also invoke an increase in LOX-1 gene expression and studies have focused on its role in endothelial dysfunction (Chen, M. et al.)(Sawamura, T. et al.) and inflammatory diseases such as atherosclerosis (Murphy, J.E. et al.) and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as its affect on CD40/CD40L signaling in both atherosclerosis and human coronary artery endothelial cells (HCAECs) (Li, D. et al. ).
