Descripción general

Epididymal-specific lipocalin-13 (LCN13) is also called Odorant-binding protein 2a (Obp2a). LCN13 is a secreted protein that is thought to act as a retinoid carrier protein within the epididymis, and have a role in male fertility. LCN13 is expressed in the epididymis.


This antibody detects two observed isoforms of LCN13.


Recombinant protein corresponding to mouse LCN13.


Detect Lipocalin using this rabbit polyclonal antibody, Anti-LCN13 Antibody validated for use in western blotting.

Western Blotting Analysis: A 1:1,000 dilution from a representative lot detected LCN13 in mouse lung tissue lysate.

Western Blotting Analysis: A representative lot from an independent laboratory detected LCN13 in liver, muscle, and pancreas tissues, but not in white adipose tissue, from LCN13 transgenic male mice (Cho, K. W., et al. (2011). Mol Cell Biol. 31(3):450-7.).

Western Blotting Analysis: A representative lot from an independent laboratory detected LCN13 in transfected mouse primary hepotcytes cell lysates (Sheng, L, et al. (2011). J Biol Chem. 286(44):38128-38135.).

Western Blotting Analysis: A representative lot detected LCN13 in mouse adipocyte cell lysates and in certain mouse organ tissues lysates (Zhou, Y. and Rui, L., (2013). Vitam Horm. 91:369-383.).


Evaluated by Western Blotting in mouse skin tissue lysate.

Western Blotting Analysis: A 1:1,000 dilution of this antibody detected LCN13 in 10 µg of LCN13 mouse skin tissue lysate.

Descripción de destino

~20 kDa observed. Two observed isoforms at ~20 kDa and ~28 kDa are likely due to proteolytic cleavage of a common LCN13 precursor (Cho, K. W., et al. (2011). Mol Cell Biol. 31(3):450-7.). Uncharacterized band(s) may be observed in some cell lysates.

Forma física

Rabbit polyclonal serum with 0.05% sodium azide.

Almacenamiento y estabilidad

Obesity is associated with hepatic steatosis, partially due to increased lipogenesis and decreased fatty acid β-oxidation in the liver; however, the underlying mechanism of abnormal lipid metabolism is not fully understood. We reported previously that obesity is associated with LCN13...

Insulin sensitivity is impaired in obesity, and insulin resistance is the primary risk factor for type 2 diabetes. Here we show that lipocalin-13 (LCN13), a lipocalin superfamily member, is a novel insulin sensitizer. LCN13 was secreted by multiple cell types....
