Mouse LBP ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse LBP ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse LBP in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Lipopolysaccharide binding protein is a protein that in humans is encoded by the LBP gene. This gene is mapped to 20q11.23. LBP is a soluble acute-phase protein that binds to bacterial lipopolysaccharide(or LPS) to elicit immune responses by presenting the LPS to important cell surface pattern recognition receptors called CD14 and TLR4. It is present in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with pneumococcal meningitis. The protein encoded by this gene is involved in the acute-phase immunologic response to gram-negative bacterial infections. LBP is made in the liver during the acute phase of infections and is thought to function as a carrier for LPS and to help control LPS-dependent monocyte responses.
