Additional information


Using DL-Homocysteic acid-BSA conjugate (HcysA-BSA), antibody specificity was performed by using an ELISA test by competition experiments:

DL-Homocysteic acid-BSA Kd around 10-8 M very high affinity and specificity

Low affinity with close competitors:

Competitors Affinity compared to HcysA-BSA
L-Glutamate-BSA 1 000 times lower low affinity
L-Aspartate-BSA 1 000 times lower low affinity

The antibody recognizes the conjugated form of the small molecule, not the free form (see protocol for specific tissue preparation).

Additional Information

Oxidative & Lipoperoxydative metabolites




Conjugated DL-homocysteic acid


Synthetic DL-Homocysteic acid conjugated to bovine serum albumin (BSA)

Species reactivity

The antibody recognizes the target in all species, vertebrates (included humans) and invertebrates, because of the universality of the small molecule


Polyclonal antibody was preabsorbed on protein carriers and purified by ammonium sulfate precipitation
