Anti CEL [NƒĂ-(carboxymethyl) lysine] Monoclonal Antibody



Reaction of protein amino groups with glucose leads, through the early products such as a Schiff base and Amadori rearrangement products, to the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGE). Recent immunological studies using anti-AGE antibody (6D12) demonstrated the presence of AGE-modified proteins in several human tissues: (1) human lens (nondiabetic and noncataractous), (2) renal proximal tubules in patients with diabetic nephropathy and chronic renal failure, (3) diabetic retina, (4)@peripheral nerves of diabetic neuropathy, (5) atherosclerotic lesions of arterial walls, (6)β2-microglobulin forming amyloid fibrils in patients with hemodialysis-related amyloidosis, (7) senile plaques of patients with Alzheimer’s disease, (8) the peritoneum of CAPD patients, (9) skin elastin in actinic elastosis, and (10) ceriod/lipofuscin deposits. These results suggest a potential role of AGE-modification in normal aging as well as age-enhanced disease processes. This antibody named as 6D12 has been used to demonstrate AGE-modified proteins in these human tissues, indicating potential usefulness of this antibody for histochemical identification and biochemical quantification of AGE-modified proteins.

CEL is known to generate from protein modification by methylglyoxal . Mclellan et al. demonstrated that plasma methylglyoxal, which is believed to be generate from Embden-Meyerhof and polyol pathways, concentrations in insulin-dependent diabetic patients were about 7-times higher than those of normal individuals. For examples, CEL was identified in human lens proteins at a concentration similar to that of CML and its accumulation increased with age like CML, indicating that CEL may play an important marker for aging and age-dependent disease such as diabetic complications.
