In initial testing on western blots, antibody 5E8 reacted with all three isoforms of human ApoE overexpressed in CHO cells. The antibody also stained THP1 cells, a human monocyte cell line derived from a patient with acute monocytic leukemia.

Generation and epitope mapping
This antibody was generated in rats immunized with recombinant human ApoE, coupled to ovalbumin. Epitope mapping has not been reported.
5E8 recognizes human ApoE.
