Detection of ACLP in HASMC Human Cells by Flow Cytometry. HASMC human human aortic smooth muscle cells was stained with Human ACLP Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6425, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB002, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG F(ab')2 Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0102B). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with saponin.

Aortic carboxypeptidase-like protein (ACLP), also known as adipocyte enhancer binding protein (AEBP1), is a 175 kDa molecule that contains a discoidin-like domain (aa 383-540) and a peptidase-like domain (aa 560-942). It is expressed in proliferating adipocytes and represses the transcription of FABP4. ACLP promotes macrophage cholesterol retention, the formation of foam cells, and inflammatory responses. It is also an extracellular matrix-associated protein found in fibrotic tissues including vascular smooth muscle. An alternately spliced isoform lacks aa 1-457 and has an altered sequence at its N-terminus. Over aa 345-1158, human ACLP shares 88% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat ACLP.
