PA1-650 detects peroxisomal membrane protein 70 (PMP70) from mouse tissues.
PA1-650 has been successfully used in Western blot, flow cytometry, and immunofluorescence procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~70 kDa protein representing PMP70 from peroxisome-enriched fractions from L cells.
PA1-650 immunizing peptide corresponds to amino acid residues 644-659 from rat PMP70. This sequence is completely conserved in mouse PMP70 and differs from human PMP70 by a single amino acid substitution. PA1-650 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-038) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
Peroxisomes are single membrane organelles which are involved with many important biochemical pathways and are found in almost all eukaryotic cells. Various toxins including, phenols, alcohols, and aldehydes are targeted for modification by peroxisomes. Long chain fatty acid metabolism via beta-oxidation is also mediated by this organelle. Loss of peroxisomal functions may result in diseases such as Zellweger syndrome, hyperpipecolic acidemia, neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy, and infantile Refsum's disease. Peroxisomal membrane protein 70 (PMP70) is an abundant, integral membrane protein of the peroxisome. This protein is induced by treatment with hypolipidemic agents in parallel with peroxisome proliferation and stimulation of the peroxisomal beta-oxidation enzymes.
