SAA Feline produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain (1-111 a.a) containing 121 a.a and having a molecular mass of 13,838 Dalton. SAA s fused with a 10 amino acids His tag at N-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
SAA was lyophilized from 0.01M HCl (pH 2.0).
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized SAA in 0.01M HCl (pH 2.0) not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized SAA although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Serum Amyloid A (APO-SAA) should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Safety Data Sheet
In response to infection, injury, or inflammation, SAA levels rapidly rise in the bloodstream. Acting as a chemoattractant, SAA recruits immune cells to the site of injury, facilitating the innate immune response. Additionally, SAA modulates the activities of immune cells, influencing cytokine production and phagocytosis. These immunomodulatory functions highlight SAA's significance in shaping the immune landscape during inflammatory events. SAA participates in lipid metabolism by interacting with HDL particles. In the acute-phase response, SAA displaces apolipoprotein A1 from HDL, transforming it into a pro-inflammatory particle. This alteration in HDL composition affects its cardioprotective functions, potentially contributing to atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases. Understanding these interactions is crucial for deciphering the intricate relationship between inflammation and cardiovascular health.
