Additional information

Specifically reactive to the amyloid form of human Transthyretin. Epitope mapped to residue 56-61 which remains buried within the native fold of transthyretin but becomes exposed within its amyloid form.
It has been suggested that that two distinct mechanisms of TTR-amyloidosis exists. The first, most common seen in wild type TTR Amyloidosis, consists of the full length TTR. Whereas the other type of amyloidosis mainly consists of the C-terminal region of the protein and is more common in mutant versions of TTR. Mouse IgG1 Anti-Transthyretin 56-61 (Amyloid Specific) epitope is located at the C-terminal strand of cleaved TTR and is suitable to detect amyloid formation derived from the C-terminal.

Background Transthyretin (TTR), formerly known as Prealbumin, is in vivo involved in the binding and transportation of the Thyroxin hormone and retinol-binding protein. Mutations in TTR are associated with familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP) which is a fatal disease characterized by amyloid depositions found in visceral organs including the heart, liver, and kidney. The wild type form of TTR is associated with a late onset amyloidosis denoted senile systemic amyloidosis, affecting around 10% of the population above 80 years of age with depositions mainly found in the heart.

Monoclonal IgG1 antibody. Amyloid specific for human Transthyretin. Detects the C-terminal fragment 49-127 frequently formed in vivo.
