MA3-013 detects HSP60 from human, monkey, mouse, and rat samples. This antibody displays no other protein reactivity.
MA3-013 has been successfully used in Western blot, immunoprecipitation, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, and ELISA procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects a single 58 kDa protein representing recombinant human HSP60.
The MA3-013 antigen is human placental HSP60. Epitope mapping studies using human HSP60 deletion mutants suggest that this antibody binds between amino acids 211-288.

Heat shock proteins (HSP) are expressed in response to various biological stresses, including high temperatures. There are several major families of HSPs including HSP70, HSP90 and HSP100. HSP60, an ~60 kDa protein, is the human homologue of HSP65 (a major antigenic mycobacterial protein) and E. coli GroEL. HSP60, also referred to as chaperonin-60, P1 and mitonin, has been classified as a member of a family of proteins termed chaperonins which act to recognize and stabilize polypeptide intermediates during folding, assembly and disassembly. HSP60 is a constitutively expressed mitochondrial protein that shares many characteristics with HSP70 including high abundance, induction by environmental stress, ATPase activity and a critical role in protein assembly and folding. However, in contrast with HSP70, HSP60 functions as a 14 subunit oligomer which is thought to interact with only 1 or 2 target polypeptides at one time.
