Recognizes Cu/Zn SOD in red blood cells. Does not cross-react with Mn SOD.
Sheep polyclonal antibody purified by DEAE ion-exchange chromatography. Recognizes the Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase protein.
Superoxide dismutase Cu/Zn enzyme (SOD (Cu/Zn)) is a homodimeric metalloenzyme of aerobic organisms, comprised of subunits of ~16 kDa. Found in a variety of cell types, including erythrocytes, liver, and brain, it serves to protect cells against the oxidative damage of free radicals by catalyzing the conversion of superoxide anions (O2-) to molecular oxygen (O2) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).
This Anti-Superoxide Dismutase Sheep pAb is validated for use in WB, Immunoelectrophoresis, Frozen sections, Paraffin sections, Free-floating sections for the detection of Superoxide Dismutase.

Human red blood cell lysate
Pasinelli, P., et al. 1998. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA95, 15763.
This antibody is monospecific as determined by immunoelectrophoresis against human red blood cell lysate and confirmed by immunodiffusion against a human red blood cell lysate and a known anti-SOD (Cu/Zn) antibody. Does not exhibit cross-reactivity with SOD (Mn) by double diffusion or with human serum. This antibody is reported to be suitable for use with free-floating, frozen, or paraffin embedded sections when used in immunohistochemistry. Variables assocated with assay conditions will dictate the proper working dilution.
