|Other Accession||O75792, 20981704|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 33 kDa |
Observed: 33 kDa
|Application Notes||RNAse H2A antibody can be used for detection of RNAse H2A by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 2 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 4 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||RNAse H2A antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||RNAse H2A Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalytic subunit of RNase HII, an endonuclease that specifically degrades the RNA of RNA:DNA hybrids. Participates in DNA replication, possibly by mediating the removal of lagging- strand Okazaki fragment RNA primers during DNA replication. Mediates the excision of single ribonucleotides from DNA:RNA duplexes.|

RNAse H2A Antibody: Ribonucleases (RNAses) H are enzymes that hydrolyze the RNA strands of RNA/DNA hybrids. The major role of these enzymes is to remove the RNA strand from the RNA/DNA hybrids that form during DNA replication and repair. RNAse H2 is made up of three subunits; all three are required for RNAse activity. Recent evidence has demonstrated that mutations in RNAse H2A or any of the other subunits result in Aicardi-Goutieres syndrome (AGS), a neurological disorder with similar symptoms to viral brain infections including high levels of IFN-alpha in the cerebral spinal fluid. Similar conditions are observed with mutations in TREX1, a single-stranded DNA exonuclease, suggesting that RNAse H2 and TREX1 may have similar roles, and that mutations in any of these genes lead to an accumulation of intracellular nucleic acids, triggering an inflammatory response through activation of the innate immune system.
