Western blot analysis of HPX over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with HPX Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00003263-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with HPX monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 3A9-1A9 (Cat # H00003263-M01 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
This gene encodes a plasma glycoprotein that binds heme with high affinity. The encoded protein is an acute phase protein that transports heme from the plasma to the liver and may be involved in protecting cells from oxidative stress. [provided by RefSeq
