Anti-Lipoprotein I (LpI) [9A11.B5] Antibody

This mouse IgM monoclonal antibody was generated against lipoprotein and recognizes Callinectes sapidus (blue crab) (and possibly multiple other crustaceans) Crustacean Lipoprotein I (LpI).

Highlights:

  • Recognizes Callinectes sapidus (blue crab) (and possibly multiple other crustaceans) Crustacean LpI
  • May react with a broader spectrum of Lps from crustaceans
  • May be especially useful in the study of crustaceans’ immunological response to, e.g., environmental stress and disease.
  • Suitable for Immunofluorescence, Western Blot and ELISA applications

A lipoprotein is a biochemical assembly whose purpose is to transport hydrophobic lipid molecules in water, as in blood or ECF. Specifically LPI is in the hemolymph of crustaceans and transports lipid to peripheral tissues and also has a role in crustacean immune recognition. LpI was first found in stage 5 embryos and appeared to be synthesized by lateral basophilic cuboidal cells that demonstrated cytoplasmic immunoreactivity for LpI at their interface with the yolk mass. The embryonic cuboidal cells bore a strong cytologic resemblance to the hepatopancreas cells of later stages (zoea, megalopae, adults), which were also immunoreactive for LpI.
