Western blot analysis of APOM over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with APOM Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00055937-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with APOM monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 1F10 (Cat # H00055937-M01 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
The protein encoded by this gene is an apolipoprotein and member of the lipocalin protein family. It is found associated with high density lipoproteins and to a lesser extent with low density lipoproteins and triglyceride-rich lipoproteins. The encoded protein is secreted through the plasma membrane but remains membrane-bound, where it is involved in lipid transport. Two transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene, but only one of them has been fully characterized. [provided by RefSeq
