  • Relevance
    Uric acid is a major endogenous antioxidant and peroxynitrite scavenger. Xanthine oxidase oxidizes oxypurines such as xanthine and hypoxanthine to uric acid. In humans and higher primates, uric acid is the final oxidation product of purine catabolism. In most other mammals, the enzyme uricase further oxidizes uric acid to allantoin. The loss of uricase in higher primates parallels the similar loss of the ability to synthesize ascorbic acid. This may be because in higher primates uric acid (urate) partially replaces ascorbic acid. Both urate and ascorbate are strong reducing substances (electron donors) and potent antioxidants. In humans, about half the antioxidant capacity of plasma comes from uric acid.

Thank you for contacting Abcam regarding ab53000.

We have not specifically tested this antibody on tissue sections, so we do not have any information about how to use the antibody in this context.

In terms of a positive control, we have specifically tested against the molecule itself in ELISA, but I have attached the following reference in which the antibody was used in neuron cultures.

I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any additional questions.
