Description 

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. The expression and release of NGAL from renal tubules are dramatically increased by ischemic or nephrotoxic injury. This antibody is specific for human NGAL. No cross-reaction with NGAL from mouse, rat, pig and dog has been detected.
