Sheep anti Human Prealbumin antibody recognises prealbumin, also known as transthyretin, a homotetrameric serum and cerebrospinal fluid protein which acts as a carrier for the thyroid hormone thyroxine. Each monomer is a 127 amino acid polypeptide. Prealbumin is synthesised principally in the liver and choroid plexus from where it is secreted into the serum and cerebrospinal fluid respectively.
Sheep anti Human Prealbumin antibody is also available as nephelometric grade whole serum and in bulk quantities. Please enquire for further details.
