Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 24 kDa.
Flow Cyt Use 1µg for 106 cells. ab170191-Mouse monoclonal IgG2a, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.


  • FunctionConverts guanine to guanosine monophosphate, and hypoxanthine to inosine monophosphate. Transfers the 5-phosphoribosyl group from 5-phosphoribosylpyrophosphate onto the purine. Plays a central role in the generation of purine nucleotides through the purine salvage pathway.
  • PathwayPurine metabolism; IMP biosynthesis via salvage pathway; IMP from hypoxanthine: step 1/1.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in HPRT1 are the cause of Lesch-Nyhan syndrome (LNS) [MIM:300322]. LNS is characterized by complete lack of enzymatic activity that results in hyperuricemia, choreoathetosis, mental retardation, and compulsive self-mutilation.
    Defects in HPRT1 are the cause of gout HPRT-related (GOUT-HPRT) [MIM:300323]; also known as HPRT-related gout or Kelley-Seegmiller syndrome. Gout is characterized by partial enzyme activity and hyperuricemia.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the purine/pyrimidine phosphoribosyltransferase family.

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab55260 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab55260, 1μg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was a mix of mouse IgG2a [ICIGG2A], (ab91361, 1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.
