Serum Amyloid A antibody | SAA19
SAA is a widely used marker of inflamation as elevated levels of SAA may be detected in the blood of the individual following infection or tissue trauma.
Serum amyloid A is highly conserved between species with human SAA being similar in structure to SAA in other species. Studies have been undertaken that demonstrate monoclonal antibodies raised against human SAA can be used to develop assays for measurement of SAA in domestic animals (Christensen, M, et al.).
In addition to human SAA, clone SAA19 recognises canine, equine and feline SAA. Structurally canine, feline and equine SAA differ from human SAA in that they contain an 8 aa insert in the central region of the sequence, human SSA being 104 aa, equine SAA 110 aa, while canine and feline SAA are 111 aa.
Clone SAA19 may be use as a capture reagent along with clone VSA34 (MCA6031GA) as the detection reagent in the development of immunoassays to detect SAA in dogs, cats and horses along with recombinant SAA (for canine, product code PDP006, for feline, product code PFP003 and for equine, product code PEP006) as standards.
