This Antibody was verified by Cell treatment to ensure that the antibody binds to the antigen stated. View Details
This antibody detects an ~32 kDa protein corresponding to the apparent molecular mass of HO-1 on SDS-PAGE immunoblots, in samples from human, mouse, rat, bovine and dog origins. This antibody does not cross-react with HO-2.
This antibody was originally validated as part of a Thermo Scientific Cellomics High Content Screening Kit. The antibody sold separately may have slightly different performance and may need to be further optimized for the best results.
Heme oxygenase (HO) is a microsomal enzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of heme to the antioxidant molecules, biliverdin and carbon monoxide. HO consists of two homologous isozymes, an inducible HO-1 and a constitutively expressed HO-2. HO-1 is induced by a wide variety of stimuli including conditions of oxidative stress, inflammatory agents, transforming growth factor beta and heat shock. The increase in expression of HO-1 is thought to be a cellular defense mechanism against oxidative stress since elevated HO could eventually generate more bilirubin, an anti-oxidant.
