Technical Data
Superoxide Dismutase 1 (SOD1)
Superoxide Dismutases (SODs), originally identified as Indophenoloxidase (IPO), are enzymes that catalyze the converversion of naturally-occuring but harmful superoxide radicals into molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide. Superoxide Dismutases 1, SOD1, also known as Cu/Zn SOD, soluble SOD, and IPO-A, is a soluble, cytoplasmic 16 kD homodimer. Each SOD1 monomer binds one Cu 2 and Zn 2 ion. Three isozymes of SOD have been identified and are functionally related but have very modest sequence homology. SOD1 shares 23% and 27% sequence identity with SOD2 and SOD3, respectively. Mutations in SOD1 have been suggested to be the cause of familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The ALS-causing mutations of SOD1 are scattered throughout the protein and provide no clear functional or structural clues to the underlying disease mechanism. The oligomerization hypothesis suggests that mutant SOD1 proteins become misfolded and consequently oligomerize into high molecular weight aggregates that result in the death of motor neurons. The oxidative damage hypothesis suggests that loss of function mutations in SOD1 result in the intracellular accumulation of the superoxide radical, leading to free radical-mediated damage, the release of cytochrome c, and apoptosis.

Suitable for use in Western Blot and ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 0.5-1ug/ml
Western Blot: 1-2ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Reconstitute the antibody in 100 L PBS containing 0.02% NaN3. The antibody
concentration will be 1.0 mg/mL.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at 4C for short-term only. Reconstitute to nominal volume by adding sterile PBS with 40-50% glycerol and store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
