PRDX5 (Peroxiredoxin 5) also known as PMP20, PRDX6, PRXV, SBBI10, is a member of the peroxiredoxin family and may play an antioxidant protective role in various tissues under nonpathologic conditions and during inflammatory processes. The PRDX5 gene is mapped to11q13.1. PRDX5 displays mitochondrial presequence features and has 3 cysteines implicated in antioxidant activity and a C-terminal SQL peroxisomal targeting sequence. Northern blot analysis revealed ubiquitous expression of a 1.0-kb PRDX5 transcript in tissues and cell lines. Functional analysis showed that PRDX5 has antioxidant activity equivalent to that of CAT. While PRDX5 was localized to fibroblasts in normal tendon, it was localized to fibroblasts and endothelial cells in degenerative tendon. PRDX5 mRNA and protein levels increased at 12 hours, and the increase in PRDX5 expression correlated with reduced peroxide levels. PRDX5 plays a protective role against oxidative stress in human cartilage.
After reconstitution, the Peroxiredoxin 5 antibody may be kept for up to one month refrigerated at +4 degrees C.For long-term, aliquot and store at -20 deg. Celcius or lower. Cycles of freezing and thawing can denaturate the peptide chains of the antibodies and reduce their sensitivity and/or change their affinity. Prepare aliqotes in such a manner so that freeze-thaw cycles are minimized. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
Human (Homo sapiens), Mouse (Mus musculus), Rat ; Due to limited knowledge and inability to test the antibody against all known species, we cannot guarantee that no other cross reactivity can occur.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by NJS poly they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
Amino acids 66-198 of human Peroxiredoxin 5 were used as the immunogen for the Peroxiredoxin 5 antibody.
