Retinol Binding Protein 4 antibody
In plasma, the RBP4-retinol complex interacts with transthyretin preventing its loss by filtration through the kidney glomeruli. Defects in RBP4 are a cause of retinol-binding protein deficiency and can cause night vision problems (Besch et al. 2003). RBP4 gene variants have been implicated in insulin resistance (Saucedo et al. 2014)
Mouse anti Human retinol binding protein 4 antibody recognizes free RBP4 and RBP4 in complex with transthyretin. It reacts with apo- as well as holo-RBP4. Mouse anti Human RBP4 antibody recognizes RBP4 as a single band of ~20 kDa in HepG2 cell line whole cell lysates by western blotting under reducing conditions.
