  • Relevance
    8-Hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8OHdG) is a modified base that occurs in DNA due to attack by hydroxyl radicals that are formed as byproducts and intermediates of aerobic metabolism and during oxidative stress. There is increasing evidence to support the involvement of free radical reactions in the damage of biomolecules that eventually lead to several diseases in humans, such as atherosclerosis, cerebral and heart ischemia-reperfusion injury, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation, diabetes, aging, and neurodegenerative conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease. 8OHdG has become increasing popular as a sensitive, stable and integral marker of oxidative damage in cellular DNA. Biomonitoring in humans has demonstrated that 8OHdG can be excreted in the urine, and that a significant increase is caused by exposure to tobacco smoke and ionizing radiation. Because 8OHdG is so well correlated with oxidative stress and damage to DNA, which leads to degenerative disease states, the development of an antibody that can be used to study DNA damage has numerous applications. In addition to the direct study of DNA damage within cells, this antibody has applications in the development of immunoassays that can monitor 8OHdG excretion in the urine and serve as a biomarker of oxidative stress.

This product has not been purified and is sold as a whole antiserum therefore we have not determined its concentration. As a rough guideline, in general whole antiserum has a concentration of 1-10 mg/ml.

The antibody will detect 8-OHdG in DNA and also RNA. RNase digestion recommended if you want to detect only 8-OHdG in DNA.

The immunostain that used the antibody at 1/4000 used a biotin-conjugated secondary, so it is likely that this was followed with an avidin-biotin-HRP complex amplification. It is possible that 1/4000 was in fact effective, as antibody affinities vary a...

Are you confident the secondary antibody and other reagents are effective? If so, I agree that it is best to try a different antibody at this point, which I will send free-of-charge.
