ZooMAb® antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.
Each ZooMAb® antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb® antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Anti-Selenoprotein P, clone 2G23 ZooMAb®, Cat. No. ZRB1020, is a Rabbit monoclonal antibody that target Selenoprotein P and is tested for use in Affinity Binding Assay, Immunocytochemistry and Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin), and Western Blotting.
Selenoprotein P (UniProt: P49908; also known as SeP) is encoded by the SELENOP (also known as SELP, SEPP1) gene (Gene ID: 6414) in human. Selenoprotein P is a secreted glycoprotein that is synthesized mainly in the liver and secreted into the plasma. It contains most of the selenium in plasma. It is synthesized with a signal peptide (aa 1-19), which is subsequently cleaved off in the mature form. Secreted form of selenoprotein P is made up of two domains. The larger N-terminal domain contains one selenocysteine (U) in a U-x-x-C redox motif and the shorter C-terminal domain contains nine selenocysteines. It is shown to bind to heparin in a pH-sensitive manner at the heparin-binding site in its N-terminal region that contains two histidine residues that become protonated, and therefore can bind heparin. Selenoproteins provide a key defense against oxidative stress, as many of these proteins participate in oxidation-reduction reactions neutralizing reactive oxygen species, where selenocysteine residues act as catalytic sites. Selenoprotein P is removed from plasma by glomerular filtration by endocytosis mediated by LRP2 in the proximal tubule epithelium. This ZooMAb® recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.

Purified recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody IgG, lyophilized in PBS with 5% Trehalose, normal appearance a coarse or translucent resin. The PBS/trehalose components in the ZooMAb formulation can have the appearance of a semi-solid (bead like gel) after lyophilization. This is a normal phenomenon. Please follow the recommended reconstitution procedure in the data sheet to dissolve the semi-solid, bead-like, gel-appearing material. The resulting antibody solution is completely stable and functional as proven by full functional testing. Contains no biocide or preservatives, such as azide, or any animal by-products. Larger pack sizes provided as multiples of 25 μL.
300 μg/mL after reconstitution at 25 μL per vial. Please refer to guidance on suggested starting dilutions and/or titers per application and sample type.
Storage and Stability
Recommend storage of lyophilized product at 2-8°C; Before reconstitution, micro-centrifuge vials briefly to spin down material to bottom of the vial; Reconstitute each vial by adding 25 μL of filtered lab grade water or PBS; Reconstituted antibodies can be stored at 2-8°C, or -20°C for long term storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaws.
