|Immunogen||Human recombinant C-Reactive protein.|
|Description||FUNCTION: Displays several functions associated with host defense: it promotesagglutination, bacterial capsular swelling, phagocytosis and complement fixation throughits calcium-dependent binding to hosphorylcholine. Can interact with DNA and histonesand may scavenge nuclear material released from damaged circulating cells.COFACTOR: Binds 2 calcium ions per subunit. SUBUNIT: Homopentamer. Pentaxin (orpentraxin) have a discoid arrangement of 5 non-covalently bound subunits.SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Secreted protein. ALTERNATIVE PRODUCTS: 2 namedisoforms produced by alternative splicing. TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Found in plasma.INDUCTION: The concentration of CRP in plasma increases greatly during acute phaseresponse to tissue injury, infection or other inflammatory stimuli. It is induced by IL-1 andIL-6. MISCELLANEOUS: This protein owes its name to its ability precipitatepneumococcal C-polysaccharide in the presence of calcium. SIMILARITY: Belongs tothe pentaxin family. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 pentaxin domain. Alternate Names: anti-GENE NAME: CRP antibody, anti-PTX1 antibody. Related Diseases: Inflammatory Markers|
|Specificity||It has been shown to be specific for C-reactive protein by WB. Species Reactivity: Human, other species have not yet been tested. Localization: Accession Number: CRP_HUMAN.|
|Application Notes||Western Blot. Extremely high titer antibody. For western blot a dilution of 1: 10,000 to 1:100,000 is recommended. The optimal dilution should be determined by the end user.|
