Rabbit anti Human vitamin D binding protein antibody recognizes Vitamin D binding protein (VDBP), the major carrier protein of vitamin D that also transports components such as fatty acids and endotoxins and has an important role in the actin scaveging system. VDBP is a 52-58 kDa plasma protein synthesized mainly by hepatocytes. Polymorphisms in the gene give rise to three major electrophoretic variants, Gc1, Gc1s and Gc1f that differ by amino acid substitutions as well as glycosylations.
