SCARA5 antibody was raised against a 17 amino acid peptide near the carboxy terminus of human SCARA5.

General description

The gene SCARA5 (scavenger receptor class A member 5) is mapped to human chromosome 8p21. It belongs to the SCARA family of proteins.

Antigen Background

Scavenger receptor class A member 5 (SCARA5), also known as TESR, is part of the scavenger receptor superfamily, which is composed of many members with diverse structures, expression patterns, and functions. SCARA5 is a cell-surface receptor that contains that collagen-like domain and N-terminal scavenger receptor cysteine rich domain typical of the class A scavenger receptor subfamily. Unlike other class A receptors, SCARA5 does not endocytose acetylated or oxidized low density lipoprotein. Instead, SCARA5 binds serum ferritin and mediates its endocytosis from the cell surface, indicating SCARA5 may play a role in non-transferrin iron delivery. At least four isoforms of SCARB1 are known to exist.

Physical form

Supplied at approx. 1 mg/mL in phosphate buffered saline containing 0.02% sodium azide.


The action of this antibody can be blocked using blocking peptide SBP3500071.

Biochem/physiol Actions

SCARA5 (scavenger receptor class A member 5) is a tumor suppressor. It plays an important role in growth regulation. It interacts with serum ferritin and helps it in crossing the blood-retinal barrier. Changes in the expression of SCARA5 are linked with retinopathy. It might also be involved in the suppression of inflammatory fibrotic responses.
