Description

Immunogen

human erythrocyte catalase

General description

Catalase is one of the most efficient and common enzyme found in nearly all living organisms exposed to oxygen. It is a very important enzyme in protecting the cell from oxidative damage by reactive oxygen species (ROS). In most mammalian cell types catalase is localized in peroxisomes which is a tertrameric haemin-enzyme consisting of 4 identical tetrahedrally arranged subunits of 60kDa. It contains four ferriprotoporphyrin groups per molecule having a molecular mass of 240kDa.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide

Preparation Note

Purified from culture supernatant of hybridoma cells grown in a bioreactor.

Application

Monoclonal Anti-Catalase antibody produced in mouse is suitable for the following:
• Immunocytochemistry
• Immunohistochemistry
• Indirect ELISA
• Microarray
• Western blotting at a concentration of 0.5-1μg/mL using whole extract of HepG2 cells

Biochem/physiol Actions

Catalase reacts with hydrogen peroxide, a reactive oxygen species, activating its decomposition into water and molecular oxygen and it reacts with hydrogen donors. It functions as a natural anti-oxidant, protecting cells against oxidative damage of proteins, lipids and nucleic acids. Catalase also plays a role in gene expression and apoptosis. Antioxidants have been identified in association with a variety of diverse cellular functions including growth control, proliferation, differentiation, immune response, tumor promotion, apoptosis and activation of viruses.
