Apolipoprotein E (Apo E) belongs to a class of apolipoproteins that mediate the binding, internalization, and catabolism of lipoprotein particles. Apo E is produced by the liver and macrophages in peripheral tissues where it regulates cholesterol metabolism. In the central nervous system, Apo E is primarily produced by astrocytes and plays an important role in transporting cholesterol to neurons via Apo E receptors. Apo E has three alleles (Apo E2, Apo E3 and Apo E4) that differ from each other by only one or two amino acids at positions 112 and 158. Apo E4 is one of the largest known genetic risk factors for late-onset Alzheimer's disease. Furthermore, Apo E is associated with cardiovascular disease, Lipoprotein Glomerulopathy and Sea-Blue Histiocyte Disease.Product Details

- Human Apo E is a 299 amino acid protein with a molecular mass of 32 kD, and exists as 3 major alleles, Apo E2, Apo E3, and Apo E4.
Tissue sources: Ubiquitously expressed. Highest levels in liver, brain, spleen, adrenal gland, and kidney.
Cellular distribution: Plasma membrane, nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, golgi apparatus, endosome, and extracellular.
- Apo E is involved in lipoprotein metabolism as well as the transport of fat-soluble vitamins, and cholesterol. Apo E also forms complexes with amyloid beta peptides leading to its uptake and degradation by microglia.
