Immunofluorescent analysis of Cytochrome P450 1A2 (green) showing staining in the cytoplasm and membrane of COS-7 cells. Formalin-fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 5-10 minutes and blocked with 3% BSA-PBS for 30 minutes at room temperature. Cells were probed with a Cytochrome P450 1A2 monoclonal antibody (Product # MA3-037) in 3% BSA-PBS at a dilution of 1:100 and incubated overnight at 4 °C in a humidified chamber. Cells were washed with PBST and incubated with a DyLight-conjugated secondary antibody in PBS at room temperature in the dark. F-actin (red) was stained with a flourescent red phalloidin and nuclei (blue) were stained with Hoechst or DAPI. Images were taken at a magnification of 60x.

MA3-037 detects Cytochrome P450 1A2 from human and non-human primate samples.
MA3-037 has been successfully used in Western blot, immunocytochemistry and immunofluorescence applications. By Western blot, this antibody detects a ~58 kDa band representing Cytochrome P450 1A2.
The MA3-037 immunogen is rat cytochrome P450 protein.
This gene encodes a member of the cytochrome P450 superfamily of enzymes. The cytochrome P450 proteins are monooxygenases which catalyze many reactions involved in drug metabolism and synthesis of cholesterol, steroids and other lipids. The protein encoded by this gene localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum and its expression is induced by some polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), some of which are found in cigarette smoke. The enzyme's endogenous substrate is unknown; however, it is able to metabolize some PAHs to carcinogenic intermediates. Other xenobiotic substrates for this enzyme include caffeine, aflatoxin B1, and acetaminophen. The transcript from this gene contains four Alu sequences flanked by direct repeats in the 3' untranslated region.
