This ABCG1 antibody is useful for Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry paraffin embedded sections and Western Blot. In Western blot mouse peritoneal macrophages treated with 22-R-hydroxycholesterol and T0901317 (stimulating ABCG1 expression) were tested, where a band was observed at ~90 kDa. Preliminary results suggest that this antibody does not appear to work in Immunoprecipitation.In vivo assay was reported in scientific literature.
ABCG1 (ATP-binding cassette sub-family G member 1), a transporter protein primarily involved in macrophage lipid homeostasis, localizes to intracellular compartments associated with ER /Golgi membranes, and its expression is highest in macrophage-rich tissue such as spleen, lung, and thymus as well as in brain. ABCG1 form heterodimers with heterologous ABCG partners and functional heterodimerization with ABCG4 has been of great interest because brain cells, mainly neurons and astrocytes, depict high expression of both transporters. ABCG1 involves in the export of a variety of lipids (in conjunction with ABCA1) including cholesterol and phospholipids from macrophages to HDL. Macrophage lipid export is the first step in the reverse cholesterol transport pathway that exports cholesterol from peripheral cells to circulating lipoproteins for eventual excretion via liver. Cholesterol export to lipoprotein acceptors is compromised in macrophage foam cells, one of the early hallmarks of atherosclerosis. Moreover, ABCG1 plays role in T cells/inflammation, brain lipid homeostasis and its expression increases in macrophages of Tangier disease patients.

FAQs for ABCG1 (2)
In the immunohistochemistry paraffin section protocol....the PBS buffer....should it be at certain pH?
For IHC application, different labs cites the pH of PBS buffer in the range of 7.1 - 7.6 but most commonly used pH is pH 7.4 (this is what we use in our lab). You may use this PBS (pH 7.4) for making permeablization buffer, antibody diluent buffers and for making wash buffer. For more on the protocol that we use in our lab and for IHC-P troubleshooting suggestions, you may visit: IHC-P Protocol and IHC-P Troubleshooting.
I was wondering what does Format 7C mean as far as anitbodies go?
7C is a fluorophore - it is useful for FLOW. The details of the fluor are (A=425, E=500)
