The E06 antibody is a murine monoclonal IgM natural antibody that binds to oxidized phospholipid and reacts with oxidized LDL, oxidized HDL and protein covalently modified by oxidized phospholipid. This antibody has been used to probe atherosclerotic plaque in mice, zebrafish, rabbits, monkeys and humans. It also binds to apoptotic cells, but not viable cells, and can be used in a variety of applications, including ELISA, immunohistochemistry and Western blot analysis, as well as for in vivo imaging with MRI techniques.

Avanti now provides high purity E06 from animal-free culture of hybridoma cells. Each batch is
verified for activity and provided with detailed protocols for the above applications.

The E06 antibody was developed by Dr. Joseph Witztum at the University of California, San Diego using apolipoprotein E knock-out mice fed a high-fat diet for seven months.

This product contains no substances that, at their given concentration, are known to be hazardous to health. Therefore there is no MSDS for this product.

Antibody for Atherosclerosis Research

There is a growing body of evidence that oxidized lipids, particularly oxidized phospholipids (OxPL), play a crucial role in the development and pathology of inflammatory diseases and some infectious diseases. Atherosclerosis is widely considered to be a chronic inflammatory disease and elevated plasma LDL is a major risk factor. Since oxidized LDL (OxLDL), with its associated OxPL, plays a major role in atherogenesis, there has been a need for antibodies that specifically recognize OxLDL. The E06 monoclonal antibody meets this need and can discriminate between native LDL and OxLDL by binding to the phosphocholine headgroup of OxPL that is present in OxLDL but is absent from native LDL. In addition, E06 can detect OxPL in cells, tissues, membranes and lipoproteins in a variety of inflammatory settings.


E06 was extensively characterized in the laboratory of Dr. Joseph Witztum at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD). Avanti® Polar Lipids, Inc. is now producing the E06 murine monoclonal antibody under license from UCSD.
