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. Use in Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence reported in scientific literature (PMID 23185679)
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.

ABCA1 (ATP-binding cassette transporter A1) The ABCA1 molecule is a primary gatekeeper for regulating the intracellular transport of cholesterol. It belongs to a larger related multifamily of cAMP-dependent anion transporter cell membrane molecules. These key proteins are responsible for tr... Read full blog post.
