||SOD1 binds copper and zinc ions ans is one of two isozymes responsible for destroying free superoxide radicals which are normally produced within the cells and which are toxic to biological systems. SOD1 is a soluble cytoplasmic protein, acting as a homodimer to convert superoxide radicals to molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide. Defects in SOD1 are the cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis type 1 (ALS1) which is a neurodegenerative disorder affecting upper and lower motor neurons and resulting in fatal paralysis.

||A peptide (HEKADDLGKGGNEESTKTG) corresponding to the amino acids 121-139 of human superoxide dismutase (SOD1) conjugated to diphtheria toxin has been used as the immunogen.
||Superoxide dismutase; SOD1;
||IHC, WB. This antibody works superbly in immunohistochemistry on frozen or paraffin embedded tissues. Antigen retrieval has been used in testing but may not be necessary. Typical working dilutions for routine immunohistochemistry are 1: 100 to 1: 1000 depending on tissue and detection method. For western blotting a dilution range of 1: 1000 to 1: 4000 is recommended. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
||This antibody has been shown to be specific for superoxide dismutase (SOD1) protein.
||Human. Does not detect mouse and rat SOD1.
||If you would like to use this product in another speices other than those specified here, or to see the shared identity between the immunogen used here in different speices and/or other molecules, simply copy the immunogen (from the Immunogen field) and paste it HERE and blast/format it. Note that, antisera raised against synthetic peptides are quite often very specific for that peptide ie, only one single amino acid difference may be enough to restrict the specificity to a particular molecule. Regardless, you can always contact us if you need assistance with this.
||Reconstitute in 100 µl of sterile water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
||After reconstitution keep aliquots at -20ºC for a higher stability, and at 4ºC with an appropriate antibacterial agent. Avoid repetitive freeze/thaw cycles. Glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability.
