Detects mouse Serpin A1a in ELISAs.
In direct ELISAs, 100% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse (rm) Serpin A1c, approximately 15% cross-reactivity with recombinant human A1, and less than 5% cross-reactivity with rmSerpin A3n is observed.
Monoclonal Rat IgG1 Clone # 882213
Protein A or G purified from hybridoma culture supernatant
Detection of Mouse SerpinA1a by Western Blot. Western blot shows mouse serum. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.2 µg/mL of Rat Anti-Mouse Serpin A1a Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7690) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). A specific band was detected for Serpin A1a at approximately 50-55 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Detection of Mouse Serpin A1a by Simple WesternTM. Simple Western lane view shows mouse serum, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for Serpin A1a at approximately 62 kDa (as indicated) using 2 µg/mL of Rat Anti-Mouse Serpin A1a Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7690) followed by 1:50 dilution of HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the 12-230 kDa separation system.

Background: Serpin A1a
Serpin A1a, also known as alpha-1-antitrypsin, belongs to the serpin superfamily of proteinase inhibitors. It is one of five alpha 1-proteinase inhibitors produced in mice. Serpin A1a is produced in the liver, then secreted into the bloodstream. It inhibits a number of serine proteases, including elastase, trypsin, plasmin, and thrombin (1, 2). Serpin A1a’s major function is to protect the lungs from neutrophil elastase. Serpin A1a deficiency can cause complications such as emphysema, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
