Major Royal Jelly Protein Exists Mainly as Apisin in Royal Jelly

Quantification of Major Royal Jelly Protein 1 in Fresh Royal Jelly by Indirect Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay

Rabbit polyclonal antibody produced by a major royal jelly protein 1 (MRJP1) specific peptide reacted only with a MRJP1. Indirect ELISA with the antibody revealed a MRJP1 level of 4.12-4.67 g/100 g in different company's royal jelly, which almost agreed with that of a hexametric form of MRJP1 (apisin) measured by high performance liquid chromatography. These results suggest that MRJP1 exists mainly as apisin in royal jelly.
