Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) is produced in the liver, brain, kidneys, and spleen. ApoE is mostly found in the intermediatedensity lipoproteins. A critical component of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins, it transports lipoproteins, fat-soluble vitamins, and cholesterol into the tissues and then into the blood. This protein is initially recognized for its importance in lipoprotein metabolism and cardiovascular disease. Recently, ApoE has been shown to be involved in Alzheimer's disease, immunoregulation, and cognition. This kit is designed to detect ApoE in serum, plasma, cell culture supernatants, and cell lysates.
AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in a no-wash, highly sensitive, quantitative assay. In an AlphaLISA assay, a biotinylated anti-analyte antibody binds to the Streptavidin-coated Donor beads while another anti-analyte antibody is conjugated to AlphaLISA Acceptor beads. In the presence of the analyte, the beads come into close proximity. The excitation of the Donor beads causes the release of singlet oxygen molecules that triggers a cascade of energy transfer in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm.
