The Life Science industry has been in the grips of a reproducibility crisis for a number of years. Abcam is leading the way in addressing the problem with our range of recombinant monoclonal antibodies and knockout edited cell lines for gold-standard validation.
One factor contributing to the crisis is the use of antibodies that are not suitable. This can lead to misleading results and the use of incorrect data informing project assumptions and direction. To help address this challenge, we have introduced an application and species grid on our primary antibody datasheets to make it easy to simplify identification of the right antibody for your needs.

WB: 1/10. The beta-glucuronidase is in its native form a tetramer of MW 280 kDa. Furthermore it can be glycosylated.
Not yet tested in other applications.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
FunctionPlays an important role in the degradation of dermatan and keratan sulfates.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in GUSB are the cause of mucopolysaccharidosis type 7 (MPS7) [MIM:253220]; also known as Sly syndrome. MPS7 is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease characterized by inability to degrade glucuronic acid-containing glycosaminoglycans. The phenotype is highly variable, ranging from severe lethal hydrops fetalis to mild forms with survival into adulthood. Most patients with the intermediate phenotype show hepatomegaly, skeletal anomalies, coarse facies, and variable degrees of mental impairment.
Note=Mucopolysaccharidosis type 7 is associated with non-immune hydrops fetalis, a generalized edema of the fetus with fluid accumulation in the body cavities due to non-immune causes. Non-immune hydrops fetalis is not a diagnosis in itself but a symptom, a feature of many genetic disorders, and the end-stage of a wide variety of disorders.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 2 family.
modificationsN-linked glycosylated with 3 to 4 oligosaccharide chains.
