ab200208 - Rabbit polyclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.


Dot blot Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.

This antibody has been assayed against 1.0µg of Adenosine Deaminase in a standard capture ELISA using Peroxidase conjugated streptavidin and ABTS (2,2'-azino-bis-[3-ethylbenthiazoline-6-sulfonic acid]) as a substrate for 30 minutes at RT.

Immunomicroscopy Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • Function
    Catalyzes the hydrolytic deamination of adenosine and 2-deoxyadenosine. Plays an important role in purine metabolism and in adenosine homeostasis. Modulates signaling by extracellular adenosine, and so contributes indirectly to cellular signaling events. Acts as a positive regulator of T-cell coactivation, by binding DPP4. Its interaction with DPP4 regulates lymphocyte-epithelial cell adhesion.
  • Tissue specificity
    Found in all tissues, occurs in large amounts in T-lymphocytes and, at the time of weaning, in gastrointestinal tissues.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in ADA are the cause of severe combined immunodeficiency autosomal recessive T-cell-negative/B-cell-negative/NK-cell-negative due to adenosine deaminase deficiency (ADASCID) [MIM:102700]. SCID refers to a genetically and clinically heterogeneous group of rare congenital disorders characterized by impairment of both humoral and cell-mediated immunity, leukopenia, and low or absent antibody levels. Patients with SCID present in infancy with recurrent, persistent infections by opportunistic organisms. The common characteristic of all types of SCID is absence of T-cell-mediated cellular immunity due to a defect in T-cell development. ADA-SCID is an autosomal recessive form accounting for about 50% of non-X-linked SCIDs. ADA deficiency has been diagnosed in chronically ill teenagers and adults (late or adult onset). Population and newborn screening programs have also identified several healthy individuals with normal immunity who have partial ADA deficiency.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the adenosine and AMP deaminases family.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Cell junction. Cytoplasmic vesicle lumen. Cytoplasm. Colocalized with DPP4 at the cell junction in lymphocyte-epithelial cell adhesion.

Thank you for your enquiry and your interest in our products. According to the datasheets, ab54969 has not been tested for ELISA (only WB, Flow Cytmetry); whilst the other antibody (ab34677) has been characterized for indirect ELISA system. Unfortunately, these two antibodies have not been used as a pair in Sandwich ELISA (sELISA). I have conducted a search for you and though we have 8 antibodies against this target (ADA) in our catalogue, none have been tested specifically for sELISA. Apologies! If you need anything further or any help then please let me know.

Thank you for your patience while I investigated the source of the note on our datasheet that specified the molecular weight of ADA as 104 kDa. The predicted molecular weight should be given as 40.7 kDa, based on the UniProt database entry: http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/P00813 The notation that specified the molecular weight as 104 kDa appears to have been a mistake and was not based on data. What I found when investigating the source of the note was that the antibody had not in fact been tested in western blotting. The application has been removed from the datasheet. It is possible the antibody will stain a western blot effectively, but we do not currently guarantee this. I apologize for any inconvenience. Although we do not have another biotinylated antibody against ADA, we have several unconjugated anti-ADA antibodies, including the rabbit monoclonal ab108352, which recognizes a protein at the predicted molecular weight for ADA. https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=108352
