This product recognizes the human Apolipoprotein H molecule, also known as beta 2 glycoprotein 1.This protein is expressed by placental trophoblast cells at high levels. Although the normal physiological role is not known, the protein appears to act as a co-factor for the binding of autoantibodies to phospholipids to trophoblasts, which is a process involved in the pathogenesis of recurrent miscarriage (anti phospholipid syndrome).
