Additional information


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

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

Low affinity with close competitors:

Competitors Affinity compared to RA-BSA
Palmitic acid-BSA 15 times lower low affinity
Farnesyl-Cysteine-BSA 25 times lower low affinity
Myristic acid-BSA 200 times lower low affinity
Oleic acid-BSA 350 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

Host species







Conjugated Retinoic acid (active metabolite of Vitamin A)


Synthetic all trans-Retinoic 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
