|Alpha-2-Macroglobulin detects Macroglobulin. Alpha-2-MACROGLOBULIN is a large plasma protein found in the blood. It is produced by the liver, and is a major component of the alpha-2 band in protein electrophoresis. Alpha 2-Macroglobulin is the largest major nonimmunoglobulin protein in plasma. The alpha 2-macroglobulin molecule is synthesized mainly in liver, but also locally by macrophages, fibroblasts, and adrenocortical cells. Alpha 2 macroglobulin acts as an antiprotease and is able to inactivate an enormous variety of proteinases. It functions as an inhibitor of fibrinolysis by inhibiting plasmin and kallikrein. It functions as an inhibitor of coagulation by inhibiting thrombin. Alpha 2-macroglobulin may act as a carrier protein because it also binds to numerous growth factors and cytokines, such as platelet-derived growth factor, basic fibroblast growth factor, TGF-ß, insulin, and IL-1ß. No specific deficiency with associated disease has been recognized, and no disease state is attributed to low concentrations of Alpha 2 macroglobulin. The concentration of alpha 2 macroglobulin rises 10-fold or more in the nephrotic syndrome when other lower molecular weight proteins are lost in the urine. The loss of alpha 2 macroglobulin into urine is prevented by its large size. The net result is that alpha 2 macroglobulin reaches serum levels equal to or greater than those of albumin in the nephrotic syndrome, which has the effect of maintaining oncotic pressure. Antialpha-2-macroglobulin is ideal for investigators involved in serum component protein research.

Goat anti Alpha-2-Macroglobulin antibody (200-101-207 lot 20172) was used to detect Alpha-2-Macroglobulin under reducing (R) and non-reducing (NR) conditions. Reduced samples of purified target proteins contained 4% BME and were boiled for 5 minutes. Samples of ~1ug of protein per lane were run by SDS-PAGE. Protein was transferred to nitrocellulose and probed with 1:3000 dilution of primary antibody (ON 4 C in MB-070). Detection shown was using Dylight 649 conjugated Donkey anti goat (605-743-125 lot 20834 1:10K in TBS/MB-070) 1 hr RT. Images were collected using the BioRad VersaDoc System.
