Anti-SQSTM1/A170/p62 Antibody

Sequestosome 1(SQSTM1)/A170(mouse)/p62(human)/ZIP(rat) is a ubiquitin-binding protein whose expression is regulated depending on oxidative stress. Abnormal expression of SQSTM1 leads to the development of metabolic bone disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. SQSTM1 has been reported to bind to an autophagy-related factor called LC3 and is considered a protein inducing the protein degradation from the ubiquitin/proteasome system to the autophagy system.
This product is a anti-Mouse SQSTM1 (A170) rabbit antiserum and can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry, and immunofluorescence.

Product Information

  • Product Form: The antiserum is a two-fold dilution preparation and has been absorbed by E.coli proteins (contains 0.1% NaN3 as a preservative).
  • Immunogen: Recombinant murine SQSTM1 (A170) with AA254-333 containing T7 tag at the N-terminal and His tag at the C-terminal.
  • Specificity: Reactive with murine and rat SQSM (A170/ZIP). Slight reactive with human SQSTM(p62)*.
    * Use with human samples will not be recommended as the reactivity with human SQSTM1 is very weak.
  • Working Dilution:
    Western blot 1:200
    Immunohistochemistry 1:1,000
    Immunofluorescence 1:1,000
