Encor Chicken Polyclonal to Visinin-like Protein 1 

Visinin was originally isolated biochemically from chicken retina as a major protein of ~24 kDa on SDS-PAGE (1). Following cloning and sequencing of visinin, several visinin like proteins were discovered by homology screening (2, 3). One of these, Visinin-like protein 1 is a small Calcium binding protein which is very abundant in the nervous system and is found only in neurons, though different neurons have different levels of expression (4, 5). It is particularly concentrated in cerebellar Purkinje cells, and tends to be most abundant in perikarya and dendrites.
The protein was discovered independently by several groups and is therefore also sometimes known as hippocalcin-like protein 3, HLP3, HPCAL3, HUVISL1, VLP-1, VILIP and VILIP-1The protein belongs to the large superfamily of calmodulin and paravalbumin type proteins which function by binding Calcium ions. Calcium binding alters the conformation of these proteins and allow them to interact with other binding partners, the properties of which they may alter. Visinin-like protein 1 has four “EF hand” domains, which are negatively charged helix-turn-helix peptides which are responsible for Calcium binding.

Visinin-like protein 1 is 191 amino acids in size and has a molecular weight on SDS-PAGE of 22 kDa. The protein has recently been suggested to be a useful biomarker of Alzheimer’s disease and traumatic brain injury (6, 7, 8). The HGNC name for this protein is VSNL1.

Antibody was raised in chicken against recombinant full length His-tagged VLP-1 purified from E. coli. and is known to react with VLP-1 from human, cow, mouse and rat. Since VLP-1 is highly conserved in primary sequence, it is likely that the antibody is effective on other species also
