Detection of Human SHBG by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human testis tissue, human liver tissue, and human plasma. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human SHBG Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2656) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for SHBG at approximately 50-53 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Human Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG), also known as ABP or androgen binding protein, is a variably glycosylated, secreted non-disulfide linked homodimer that belongs to the SHBG family. Members of this small family have tandem repeats of 170 aa long laminin a chain G-like domains. Each SHBG monomer is a 47‑53 kDa, 373 aa glycoprotein that contains one steroid-binding site in its N-terminal G-like domain. Male and female sex hormones are bound with equal affinity. SHBG is synthesized by the liver and circulates in blood; ABP (SHBG in the testis) is synthesized by Sertoli cells and circulates in the male reproductive system. Human SHBG shares approximately 67% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat SHBG.
