RAGE 1 Antibody #4800
|W IHC-P||H (Mk)||Endogenous||58||Rabbit|
Reactivity Key: H=Human Mk=Monkey
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
RAGE 1 Antibody detects endogenous levels of total RAGE 1 protein.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the carboxy terminus of human RAGE isoform 1 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
The receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) is member of the immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily. It can be expressed as full-length, membrane-bound RAGE isoform 1 or as a secreted sRAGE protein that lacks a transmembrane domain (1). RAGE is detected during early developmental stages and in the lung under normal physiological conditions (2) and is upregulated at sites of inflammation (3). Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and a variety of other ligands interact with this receptor (1). Ligand binding activates full-length RAGE and initiates downstream signaling pathways that include activation of NF-κB, which leads to production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and inflammation (4). Activation of these pathways has been implicated in various disease states including Alzheimer disease, diabetes, arthritis, and atherosclerosis (4). Soluble RAGE can competitively bind RAGE ligands in the extracellular environment, which prevents ligand interaction with full-length RAGE at the cell surface (1).
