General description

ApoA-1 (apolipoprotein A-1) is a 29.0kDa protein produced in the liver and intestine, and secreted as the predominant constituent of nascent high-density lipoprotein (HDL) particle. BP- ApoA-1 (apolipoprotein A-1), which is found exclusively in HDL (high-density lipoprotein), has a unique ability to capture and solubilize free cholesterol. This apoA-1 ability enables HDL to remove excess peripheral cholesterol and return it to the liver for recycling and excretion. The therapeutic potential of apoA-1 has been recently assessed in patients with acute coronary syndromes, using a recombinant form of a naturally occurring variant of apoA-1 (called apoA-1 Milano). The availability of recombinant normal apoA-1 should facilitate further investigation into the potential usefulness of apoA-1 in preventing atherosclerotic vascular diseases. Changes in the level of serum apoA-1 may serve as a prognostic marker for non-metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Low levels of apoA-1 in the plasma are linked to hyperhomocysteinemia.

Physical form

Supplied as a lyophilized powder containing phosphate buffered saline.

Preparation Note

Briefly centrifuge the vial before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the protein in sterile ultrapure water to a final concentration of 100μg/ml.

Storage and Stability

Store the lyophilized product at –20 oC. The product is stable for at least 2 years as supplied. After reconstitution, it is recommended to store the protein in working aliquots at –20 oC.

Analysis Note

General description

SILuProt ApoA−Ι is a recombinant, stable isotope-labeled human Apo A1 which incorporates [13C6, 15N4]-Arginine and [13C6, 15N2]-Lysine. Expressed in human 293 cells, it is designed to be used as an internal standard for bioanalysis of ApoA1 in mass-spectrometry. SILu Prot Apo A-Ι is a monomer of 280 amino acids (including C-terminal polyhistidine and V5 tags), with an apparent molecular weight of 32.3 kDa.



The N-terminal signal peptide and C-terminal linker peptide, V5 and polyhistidine tags are italicized. Suggested transitions for three peptides (bolded) are used for selected reaction monitoring analysis (SRM).

Label Incorporation
≥ 98% as determined by mass spectrometry

Other Characterization
• Sequence confirmed by intact mass analysis
• Identity verified by peptide mapping
• Purity >98% by SDS-PAGE
• Vial content was determined by the Bradford method using BSA as a calibrator. The correction factor of Bradford-to-AAA is 88.33%

Suggested Quantitative Analysis Parameters
(MRM settings provided for three suggested peptides)
