Alternate Names for Recombinant Human Lipocalin-1 Protein, CF

TPVon Ebner gland protein
VEGPlipocalin 1 (protein migrating faster than albumin, tear prealbumin)
Lipocalin-1, also known as tear prealbumin or von Ebner’s gland protein (VEGP), is encoded by the LCN1 gene (1-3). It is a member of the Lipocalin superfamily that binds many different classes of lipophylic chemicals (4). Lipocalin-1 contains three sequence motifs similar to the cystatins, a superfamily of cysteine protease inhibitors (5). In fact, it has been suggested that Lipocalin-1 is a physiological inhibitor of cysteine proteases and plays a role in the control of inflammatory processes in oral and ocular tissues (5). Recombinant Human Lipocalin-1 corresponds to the mature and secreted protein. It is a weak inhibitor of cysteine proteases such as cathepsin V, which is similar to recombinant human Cystatin S (Catalog # 1296-PI).
