General description

Monoclonal Anti-Heat Shock Protein 60 (HSP60), clone LK2, recognizes an epitope located between amino acid residues 383-419 of the human (corresponding to a.a. residues 356-393 of the mycobacterial) HSP60. The antibody is reactive against the mammalian (e.g., human, rat), avian (e.g., chicken), bacterial (e.g., E. coli), helminths and spinach HSP60. In immunoblotting, the antibody may label additional bands at approx. 38 and 97 kDa. It is reactive with both the constitutive and the inducible HSP60. It shows a raised level of staining in immunohistochemistry of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded synovial membranes taken from patients with juvenile chronic arthritis.

Monoclonal anti-Heat Shock Protein 60 (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the LK2 hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from BALB/c mice immunized with recombinant human heat shock protein 60.

Biochem/physiol Actions

A wide variety of environmental perturbations, such as a sudden increase in temperature, induce cells to rapidly synthesize a group of polypeptides known as the heat shock (stress) proteins. The 60 kDa HSP family (HSP60) which retained a uniquely high level of sequence conservation during evolution is a focus of interest as a potential antigen in a number of autoimmune diseases. Abnormal immune reactivity involving HSP60 has also been implicated in the pathogenesis of schizophrenia. In human arthritis and experimentally-induced arthritis in animals, disease development was seen to coincide with development of immune reactivity directed against not only bacterial HSP60, but also against its mammalian homologue. A human mitochondrial protein, originally designated P1, has been described as the human homologue of the bacterial HSP60, and >45% of the protein has sequence identity with its bacterial homologue (groEL, HSP65).
