General description

Ubiquitin is a highly conserved protein of about 8.5 kDa molecular weight, which has an ATP dependent role in the targeting of proteins for proteolytic degradation. To perform this function, the protein to be degraded is first covalently attached to the C terminus of ubiquitin, and the ubiquitinated complex is then recognized by a complex of degradative enzymes. Interestingly, ubiquitin also becomes covalently bonded to many types of pathological inclusions, which appear to be resistant to normal degradation. Therefore, ubiquitin antibodies are very useful for studies of these inclusions. For example, the neurofibrillary tangles and paired helical filaments diagnostic of Alzheimer′s disease, Lewy bodies seen in Parkinson′s disease, and Pick bodies found in Pick′s disease are all heavily ubiquitinated and can be readily visualized with ubiquitin antibodies.


Expected to cross-react with Bovine, Chicken, and Drosophila.

Reactivity with other species has not been confirmed.

Ubiquitin (76 amino acid, 8.5 kDa) both conjugated and unconjugated. Shows staining of tangle material in Alzheimer affected brain, and also stains other pathological inclusions such as Lewy bodies (in Parkinson’s disease) and Pick bodies (in Pick’s disease).


Purified ubiquitin (bovine RBC) covalently coupled to KLH using glutaraldehyde.


Immunohistochemistry (frozen or paraffin embedded sections):
1:250-1:1,000 dilution from a previous lot was used.

Electron Microscopy:
1:250-1:1,000 dilution from a previous lot was used.

(Liang, 1995; Oberdorf, 1999)
Note: Suggested blocking agent is bovine serum albumin.

1:250-1:1,000. The sensitivity of the assay can be enhanced by autoclaving the blot (Swerdlow, 1986).

Optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user.
