bovine α-elastin.


The antibody binds to insoluble elastin, α-elastin, tropoelastin (the soluble non-cross linked precursor of elastin) and to peptide fragments generated by proteolytic digestion of insoluble elastin. In tropoelastin preparations, three immunoreactive bands have been observed at 67.5 kDa, 65 kDa and 62 kDa corresponding to the three elastin isoforms. The antibody is specific for an epitope composed of the repeated sequence in elastin: Val-Gly-Val-Ala-Pro-Gly. This epitope has been shown to be a chemoattractant for fibroblasts and monocytes.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Elastin is encoded by the ELN gene in humans. It is a polymeric protein in connective tissue that has exceptional properties of extension, elastic recoil to the extracellular matrix and allows many tissues in the body to resume their shape after stretching or contracting. Elastin is a self-assembling, extracellular-matrix protein providing tissue elasticity and is predominantly comprised of cross-linked tropoelastin. It plays an important role in the atherosclerotic process. The conformational disorder is caused due to a constitutive feature of elastin structure and function.
