SUMMARY, EXPLANATION AND LIMITATIONS:
Prealbumin is a protein found in serum in amounts ranging from 200-400 mg/L. Prealbumin migrates faster than albumin in acidic gels. The function is to transport thyroxine prealbumin, a feature it shares with thyroxine-binding globulin, retinol binding protein and vitamin A.
Immunogen: Prealbumin isolated from human plasma.
Staining pattern: Secreted. Cytoplasm.
Positive control: Tissue sample from liver.
This antibody is designed for the specific localization of human prealbumin using IHC techniques in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections.
