Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL; also called lipocalin 2, siderocalin and neutrophil lipocalin) is a member of the lipocalin family of proteins which bind and transport small lipophilic molecules. NGAL is released by activated neutrophils and occurs as 25-kDa glycosylated single protein chain monomers, which form dimers and small amounts of higher oligomers, as well as complexes with matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9; gelatinase B). Low level expression of NGAL in a variety of epithelia may be increased in inflammation or cancers. Expression of NGAL in the kidney is dramatically increased by acute kidney injury.
ABS 038-15 and ABS 038-26 (as biotinylated detection antibodies) for measuring human NGAL. With ABS 038-15B detection antibody, the assay reacts equally with NGAL monomer and homodimer on a mass basis. With ABS 038-14B detection antibody, the assay is specific for NGAL homodimer and can be used at sample dilutions giving low levels of total NGAL.
