Detection of Human alpha 2‑Macroglobulin by Western Blot.
Western blot shows human serum. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human alpha 2‑Macroglobulin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1938) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for alpha 2‑Macroglobulin at approximately 180 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Detection of Human alpha 2‑Macroglobulin by Simple WesternTM.
Simple Western lane view shows human serum, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for alpha 2‑Macroglobulin at approximately 178 kDa (as indicated) using 10 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human alpha 2‑Macroglobulin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1938). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the 12-230 kDa separation system.

Background: alpha 2-Macroglobulin
Alpha 2-macroglobulin (A2M) is a general and irreversible protease inhibitor implicated in many processes. It is able to inhibit all four classes of proteases by a unique trapping mechanism.
