  • FunctionPutative nuclease involved in innate immune response by acting as a negative regulator of the cell-intrinsic antiviral response. May play a role in mediating proinflammatory responses to TNF-alpha signaling.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in heart, skeletal muscle, spleen, liver, small intestine, placenta, lung and peripheral blood leukocytes. No expression is seen in brain and thymus.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in SAMHD1 are the cause of Aicardi-Goutieres syndrome type 5 (AGS5) [MIM:612952]. A form of Aicardi-Goutieres syndrome, a genetically heterogeneous disease characterized by cerebral atrophy, leukoencephalopathy, intracranial calcifications, chronic cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) lymphocytosis, increased CSF alpha-interferon, and negative serologic investigations for common prenatal infection. Clinical features as thrombocytopenia, hepatosplenomegaly and elevated hepatic transaminases along with intermittent fever may erroneously suggest an infective process. Severe neurological dysfunctions manifest in infancy as progressive microcephaly, spasticity, dystonic posturing and profound psychomotor retardation. Death often occurs in early childhood.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the SAMHD1 family.
    Contains 1 HD domain.

  • Predicted band size : 72 kDa

    Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 2: SAMHD knockout HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 3: K562 cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lanes 1 - 3: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab117908 observed at 70 kDa. Red - loading control, ab181602, observed at 37 kDa. ab117908 was shown to recognize SAMHD1 when SAMHD1 knockout samples were used, along with additional cross-reactive bands. Wild-type and SAMHD1 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab117908 and ab181602 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted 1/2000 and 1/10000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed ab216772 and Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed ab216777 secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.

    Lysates/proteins at 5 µg per lane.

    Predicted band size : 72 kDa
    HEK293T cell lysates were generated from transient transfection of the cDNA clone (RC200606)
  • IHC image of SAMHD1 staining in Human normal spleen formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab117908, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
