Protein A or G purified from hybridoma culture supernatant
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant human RAGE
Accession # Q15109
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration
Western Blot

See below
Blockade of Receptor-ligand Interaction
In a functional ELISA, 1-3 μg/mL of this antibody will block 50% of the binding of 500 ng/mL of biotinylated
AGE-BSA to immobilized recombinant human RAGE/Fc Chimera coated at 5 μg/mL (100 µL/well). At 10 μg/mL, this antibody will block >90% of the binding.

Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of Human RAGE antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human RAGE by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human lung tissue. PVDF Membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human RAGE Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB11451) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). Specific bands were detected for RAGE at approximately 43 kDa under non-reducing (NR) conditions and 50 kDa under reducing (R) conditions (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: RAGE/AGER

Advanced glycation endproducts (AGE) are adducts formed by the non-enzymatic glycation or oxidation of macromolecules (1). AGE forms during aging and its formation is accelerated under pathophysiologic states such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, renal failure and immune/inflammatory disorders. Receptor for Advanced Glycation Endoproducts (RAGE), named for its ability to bind AGE, is a multi-ligand receptor belonging the immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily. Besides AGE, RAGE binds amyloid beta -peptide, S100/calgranulin family proteins, high mobility group B1 (HMGB1, also know as amphoterin) and leukocyte integrins (1, 2).

The human RAGE gene encodes a 404 amino acid residues (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein with a 22 aa signal peptide, a 320 aa extracellular domain containing an Ig-like V-type domain and two Ig-like Ce-type domains, a 21 aa transmembrane domain and a 41 aa cytoplasmic domain (3). The V-type domain and the cytoplasmic domain are important for ligand binding and for intracellular signaling, respectively. Two alternative splice variants, lacking the V-type domain or the cytoplasmic tail, are known (1, 4). RAGE is highly expressed in the embryonic central nervous system (5). In adult tissues, RAGE is expressed at low levels in multiple tissues including endothelial and smooth muscle cells, mononuclear phagocytes, pericytes, microglia, neurons, cardiac myocytes and hepatocytes (6). The expression of RAGE is upregulated upon ligand interaction. Depending on the cellular context and interacting ligand, RAGE activation can trigger differential signaling pathways that affect divergent pathways of gene expression (1, 7). RAGE activation modulates varied essential cellular responses (including inflammation, immunity, proliferation, cellular adhesion and migration) that contribute to cellular dysfunction associated with chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, amyloidoses and immune or inflammatory disorders (1).
