Specificity / Sensitivity
Nitro-Tyrosine Antibody detects proteins and peptides containing nitro-tyrosine in a manner independent of the surrounding amino acid sequence. It is a valuable tool for identifying new nitrated proteins as well as for assaying protein nitration and measuring levels of nitrated proteins in tissues and samples. The antibody does not cross-react with unmodified tyrosine or with phospho-tyrosine. (U.S. Patent No's.: 6,441,140; 6,982,318; 7,259,022; 7,344,714; U.S.S.N. 11,484,485; and all foreign equivalents.)
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with synthetic nitro-tyrosine-containing peptides . Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Nitric oxide (NO) is implicated in carcinogenesis (1), chronic infection, inflammation (2) and neurodegeneration (3). High levels of both superoxide and nitric oxide in tissues interact to form peroxynitrite, a potent oxidant that can modify Tyr residues in proteins to form 3-nitro-tyrosine (4). Tyrosine nitration of mitochondrial manganese superoxide dismutase results in loss of enzymatic activity (4). The nitration of p53 at Tyr residues abolishes its capacity for binding to its DNA consensus sequence (5).
