Recombinant human LBP



The LBP is produced from human LBP transfected CHO-cells in serum free medium. Before transfection the complete human LBP-cDNA was amplified by PCR and cloned into expression vector p-POL-DHFR.


0.25 mg/ml phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2 (determined by huLBP-ELISA with defined standard)
For reconstitution add 40 µl water/ tube


By his-tag with metal affinity purification with Talon and controlled by SDS page (purity:90-95%).
Attention: His-tag has no protease site and can't be splitted off

Endotoxin content

Less than 0.01ng/ml (determined by LAL-ELISA-test Chromogenix after heating 5' 75°C)

Special note

Up to 0.2 µg/ ml LBP mediates binding of FITC-LPS (0.5 µg/ml) to CD14+CHO transfectants (FACS).


10 µg, lyophilized


long time: -80°C. Short time storage is possible at 4°C or -20°C


The LBP will be precipitated by rapid changes of pH or temperature.
Best working temperature is ice bath.
