Data Examples

Western Blot Detection of Human and Mouse Pentraxin 2/SAP by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human and Mouse Pentraxin 2/SAP by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of mouse kidney tissue, mouse liver tissue, and human kidney tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.2 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human/Mouse Pentraxin 2/SAP Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2558) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for Pentraxin 2/SAP at approximately 26 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Simple Western Detection of Mouse Pentraxin 2/SAP by Simple WesternTM. View Larger

Detection of Mouse Pentraxin 2/SAP by Simple WesternTM. Simple Western lane view shows lysates of mouse kidney tissue, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for Pentraxin 2/SAP at approximately 36 kDa (as indicated) using 2 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human/Mouse Pentraxin 2/SAP Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2558) followed by 1:50 dilution of HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the
12-230 kDa separation system.

Background: Pentraxin 2/SAP

Pentraxin 2 (also known as Serum Amyoid P Component or SAP) is a secreted glycoprotein that is a universal non-fibrillar component of amyloid deposits. Amyloid is an abnormal extracellular deposit of insoluble protein fibrils that can lead to tissue damage and disease (1‑3). Pentraxin 2 belongs to the pentraxin (pentaxin) family, whose members have a characteristic pentagonal discoid arrangement of five non-covalently bound subunits (4). Pentraxin domains contain the consensus sequence, HxCx(S/T)WxS (x = any amino acid), a lectin fold, and two calcium-binding sites (1). They bind to a variety of unrelated molecules in a calcium-dependent lectin-like manner (1, 4, 5). Pentraxin 2 and C-reactive protein (CRP) are members of the classical or short pentraxin subfamily and share 46% amino acid (aa) identity (1). Mouse Pentraxin 2 is the major acute-phase protein whose expression is dependent on complement activation, IL-6 and/or IL-1 beta, while in humans, CRP is the major acute-phase protein (2, 5, 9). Both are produced and secreted by liver hepatocytes and circulate in plasma. The 204 aa mature mouse Pentraxin 2 shares 79% aa identity with rat Pentraxin 2 and 63‑70% aa identity with human, guinea pig, golden hamster, porcine, and bovine Pentraxin 2 (2, 5). Amyloid deposits containing Pentraxin 2 are implicated in a diverse range of diseases including Alzheimer’s, prion diseases, type 2 diabetes and various systemic amyloidoses (3, 6, 7). Pentraxin 2 regulates the solubility of amyloid fibrils and protects them from degradation. In addition to its pathogenic role, Pentraxin 2 also has an important physiological function in innate immunity (8). It is an opsonin that interacts with all three types of human Fc gamma receptors that mediate neutrophil phagocytosis (8). Pentraxin 2 has been proposed to bind and sequester a variety of ligands including auto-antigens, apoptotic cells, chromatin, DNA, and micro-organisms (1‑3). Pentraxin 2 is also a normal component of basement membranes (1).
