||FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY (RUO).
||Rabbit polyclonal antibody anti-ABCG8 (1-320) is suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunofluorescence.
||PBS containing 0.02% Sodium Azide, 50% Glycerol, pH7.3.
||WB 1:500-1:2000IF 1:50-1:200
||Store in a freezer at-20°C and avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
||Recombinant fusion protein containing a sequence corresponding to amino acids 1-320 of human ABCG8 (NP_071882.1).
| Tissue Specificity || Predominantly expressed in the liver. Low expression levels in the small intestine and colon. Very low levels in other tissues, including brain, heart and spleen. |
| Post Translational Modifications || N-glycosylated. |
| Function || ABCG5 and ABCG8 form an obligate heterodimer that mediates Mg(2+)- and ATP-dependent sterol transport across the cell membrane. Plays an essential role in the selective transport of the dietary cholesterol in and out of the enterocytes and in the selective sterol excretion by the liver into bile. Required for normal sterol homeostasis. The heterodimer with ABCG5 has ATPase activity. |
