|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6418a was selected from the C-term region of human Drosophila DJ-1B (C-term). A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Involved in protection against reactive oxygen species (ROS) (By similarity). Does not play a role in methylglyoxal detoxification (PubMed:27903648).|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in the head and testis (at protein level).|

DJ-1 mutations are associated with rare forms of autosomal recessive early-onset Parkinson's disease (PD). DJ-1 is suggested to normally function as a redox-sensitive molecular chaperone protective against cellular oxidative stress. DJ-1 Drosophila models are an important tool for elucidating protein function and for modeling neurodegenerative disease.
