Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/5000. Detects a band of approximately 16 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 16 kDa).
IP 1/20.
IHC-P 1/50 - 1/100. Antigen retrieval is not essential but may optimise staining.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt.
  • Target

    • Function

      Destroys radicals which are normally produced within the cells and which are toxic to biological systems.
    • Involvement in disease

      Defects in SOD1 are the cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis type 1 (ALS1) [MIM:105400]. ALS1 is a familial form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurodegenerative disorder affecting upper and lower motor neurons and resulting in fatal paralysis. Sensory abnormalities are absent. Death usually occurs within 2 to 5 years. The etiology of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is likely to be multifactorial, involving both genetic and environmental factors. The disease is inherited in 5-10% of cases leading to familial forms.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the Cu-Zn superoxide dismutase family.
    • Post-translational

      Unlike wild-type protein, the pathogenic variants ALS1 Arg-38, Arg-47, Arg-86 and Ala-94 are polyubiquitinated by RNF19A leading to their proteasomal degradation. The pathogenic variants ALS1 Arg-86 and Ala-94 are ubiquitinated by MARCH5 leading to their proteasomal degradation.
      The ditryptophan cross-link at Trp-33 is reponsible for the non-disulfide-linked homodimerization. Such modification might only occur in extreme conditions and additional experimental evidence is required.
    • Cellular localization

      Cytoplasm. The pathogenic variants ALS1 Arg-86 and Ala-94 gradually aggregates and accumulates in mitochondria.

    Our cross reactivity recommendations for 1926-1 and 2582-1 are based off of Western blot analysis only. We do not recommend either product for detection of mouse SOD1 as we did not obtain any staining in WB with 2582-1, and we obtained non-specific staining only with 1926-1. There is 78% homology between the immunogen sequence (which is the same for both products) and mouse SOD1. Based on these results, we do not predict that either antibody would work in ICC/IF for mouse samples.
    I've attached the western blot image for 2582-1 in mouse.

    Vielen Dank für Ihre Antwort.

    Ich kann bestätigen, dass die Immunogensequenz von ab52950die Mutation G93A nicht beinhaltet und somit beide Proteine erkennen wird. (Ich nehme hierbei an, dass G93A eine Punktmutation ist, die nicht zu einem trunkierten Protein führt).

    ab16831 ist ein polyklonaler Antikörper, dessen Immunogen das Protein voller Länge war, und es ist somit höchst wahrscheinlich, dass auch er beide Formen, mutiert und WT, erkennt. Dies ist aber nicht experimentell von uns getestet worden.

    I hoffe, diese Information ist hilfreich und wünsche Ihnen viel Erfolg mit Ihrer Masterarbeit.

    Vielen Dank für Ihre Anfrage.
    Ich freue mich Ihnen mitteilen zu können, dass beide Lots eine Konzentration von 0.263 mg/mL haben.
    Ich möchte auch darauf hinweisen, dass diese scheinbar niedrige Konzentration völlig ausreichend ist. Dieser Antikörper ist ein monoklonaler Antikörper aus dem Kaninchen. Kaninchen produzieren extrem spezifische Antikörper mit einer sehr starken Affinität und somit wird weniger Antikörper benötigt als mit monoklonalen aus der Maus. Die Menge an "Tests", die mit einem Röhrchen durchgeführt werden kann, wird von uns streng kontrolliert und immer vergleichbar gehalten.
    Ich hoffe, dies hilft Ihnen weiter. Bitte zögern Sie nicht, sich wieder bei uns zu melden, falls Sie weitere Fragen haben.
