Rabbit Monoclonal Antibody to Human Superoxide Dismutase 1, Soluble
Superoxide dismutase [Cu-Zn], also known as superoxide dismutase 1 and SOD1, is an enzyme that in humans is a cytoplasm protein which belongs to the Cu-Zn superoxide dismutase family. SOD1 binds copper and zinc ions and is one of three isozymes responsible for destroying free superoxide radicals in the body. SOD1 is a soluble cytoplasmic and mitochondrial intermembrane space protein, acting as a homodimer to convert naturally occurring, but harmful, superoxide radicals to molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide. SOD1 has a tendency to form fibrillar aggregates in the absence of the intramolecular disulfide bond or of bound zinc ions. These aggregates may have cytotoxic effects. Zinc binding promotes dimerization and stabilizes the native form. Defects in SOD1 are the cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis type 1 (ALS1) which is a familial form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurodegenerative disorder affecting upper and lower motor neurons and resulting in fatal paralysis. Death usually occurs within 2 to 5 years. The disease is inherited in 5-10% of cases leading to familial forms.
Human Superoxide Dismutase. No cross-reactivity with human cell lysate ( 293 cell line ) in WB and ELISA.
Recombinant human SOD1 protein
Western blot; ELISA
Western blot: This antibody can be used at 1 - 2 μg/mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect human SOD1 in WB. Using a DAB detection system, the detection limit for human SOD1 is approximately 0.25 ng/lane under non-reducing conditions and reducing conditionsDirect ELISA: This antibody can be used at 0.1 - 0.2 μg/mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect human SOD1. The detection limit for human SOD1 is approximately 0.00245 ng/well
This antibody was obtained from a rabbit immunized with purified, human cell-derived, recombinant human SOD1
0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with 5% trehalose
