The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 50 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 50 kDa).
IP 1/10 - 1/100.
IHC-P 1/100 - 1/250. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
ICC/IF 1/100 - 1/250.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt.
  • Target

    • Tissue specificity

      Highest expression in the prostate, small intestine, colon, kidney and liver.
    • Pathway

      Amino-acid degradation; L-phenylalanine degradation; acetoacetate and fumarate from L-phenylalanine: step 4/6.
    • Involvement in disease

      Defects in HGD are the cause of alkaptonuria (AKU) [MIM:203500]. AKU is an autosomal recessive error of metabolism characterized by an increase in the level of homogentisic acid. The clinical manifestations of AKU are urine that turns dark on standing and alkalinization, black ochronotic pigmentation of cartilage and collagenous tissues, and spine arthritis.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the homogentisate dioxygenase family.
