The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/5000. Detects a band of approximately 16 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 16 kDa).
IP 1/20.
IHC-P 1/50 - 1/100. Antigen retrieval is not essential but may optimise staining.
ICC/IF 1/50 - 1/100.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt.
  • Target

    • Function
      Destroys radicals which are normally produced within the cells and which are toxic to biological systems.
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects in SOD1 are the cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis type 1 (ALS1) [MIM:105400]. ALS1 is a familial form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurodegenerative disorder affecting upper and lower motor neurons and resulting in fatal paralysis. Sensory abnormalities are absent. Death usually occurs within 2 to 5 years. The etiology of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is likely to be multifactorial, involving both genetic and environmental factors. The disease is inherited in 5-10% of cases leading to familial forms.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the Cu-Zn superoxide dismutase family.
    • Post-translational
      Unlike wild-type protein, the pathogenic variants ALS1 Arg-38, Arg-47, Arg-86 and Ala-94 are polyubiquitinated by RNF19A leading to their proteasomal degradation. The pathogenic variants ALS1 Arg-86 and Ala-94 are ubiquitinated by MARCH5 leading to their proteasomal degradation.
      The ditryptophan cross-link at Trp-33 is reponsible for the non-disulfide-linked homodimerization. Such modification might only occur in extreme conditions and additional experimental evidence is required.
    • Cellular localization
      Cytoplasm. The pathogenic variants ALS1 Arg-86 and Ala-94 gradually aggregates and accumulates in mitochondria.

    Our cross reactivity recommendations for 1926-1 and 2582-1 are based off of Western blot analysis only. We do not recommend either product for detection of mouse SOD1 as we did not obtain any staining in WB with 2582-1, and we obtained non-specifi...

    Ich kann bestätigen, dass die Immunogensequenz von ab52950die Mutation G93A nicht beinhaltet und somit beide Proteine erkennen wird. (Ich nehme hierbei an, dass G93A eine Punktmutation ist, die nicht zu...
