Rabbit anti Human CD5L antibody recognizes the N-terminal (NT) region of human CD5L, also known as Apoptosis Inhibitor expressed by Macrophages (AIM), and SP alpha. CD5L is a soluble ~38 kDa glycoprotein produced by mature macrophages, and has been shown to support their survival and enhance phagocytic function. CD5L expression is upregulated in response to LXR/RXR heterodimer activation.
CD5L has been shown to mediate the survival of macrophages in atherosclerotic plaques.

Applications of CD5L antibody
|Immunohistology - Paraffin 1
- 1This product requires antigen retrieval using heat treatment prior to staining of paraffin sections. Sodium citrate buffer pH 6.0 is recommended for this purpose.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
- Western Blotting
- AHP1169 detects a band of approximately 38kDa in human lymph node tissue lysates.
