Biochem/physiol Actions

Highly soluble carrier protein used in antibody production

Physical form

100 mg in 0.5 mL of 0.15 M NaCl, 0.1 M sodium phosphate, pH 7.2


Blue Carrier is an oxygen-carrying protein isolated from the hemolymph of the mollusk Concholepas concholepas. It is highly immunogenic, useful as a carrier protein for the production of antibodies to small molecules. An example of the protocol is given in reference to production of antibodies to gizzerosine.

Hemocyanin is a carrier protein used in antibody production. It has been used to promote antibody production against haptins and peptides, in therepy for bladder carcinoma, and has a component in vaccines for cancer.
