Human anti Human HbA1c antibody, clone AbD15785 recognizes HbA1c, i.e. hemoglobin when glycated at the N-terminal valine of the hemoglobin β chain. It does not bind to non-glycated hemoglobin. Besides binding to the normal glycated hemoglobin, it also recognizes the glycated hemoglobin variants HbC, HbE, HbD and to a lesser degree HbS. Elevated HbF cannot be detected due to the absence of the hemoglobin β chain.
The measurement of HbA1c levels is used to identify the average plasma glucose concentration. In Diabetes mellitus, higher levels of HbA1c have been associated with cardiovascular disease and other diseases. Levels of more than 6.5% HbA1c (48 mmol/mol) are used as a criterion to diagnose diabetes.
- Target Species
- Product Form
- A monovalent human recombinant Fab (lambda light chain) selected from the HuCAL® phage display library, expressed in E. coli. The antibody is tagged with a V5 tag and a double extended Strep-tag at the C-terminus of the antibody heavy chain. This antibody is supplied as a liquid.
- StrepTactin affinity chromatography
- Buffer Solution
- Phosphate buffered saline
- Preservative Stabilisers
- 0.01% Thiomersal
- The immunogens used in the generation of this antibody were:
A glycated peptide, corresponding to N-terminal 9 amino acids of haemoglobin beta chain coupled to carrier proteins
- The affinity of this antibody, measured against the immunogen, was measured as KD=28 nM by real time, label-free molecular interaction analysis using HbA1c-BSA and HbA1c-TRF conjugates as immobilized antigen.
The affinity of this antibody, as measured against purified HbA1c, was measured as KD=65 nM by real time, label-free molecular interaction analysis using full length HbA1c as immobilized antigen.
- Approx. Protein Concentrations
- Antibody concentration 0.5 mg/ml
- This product is shipped at ambient temperature. It is recommended to aliquot and store at -20°C on receipt. When thawed, aliquot the sample as needed. Keep aliquots at 2-8°C for short term use (up to 4 weeks) and store the remaining aliquots at -20°C.
Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
