|The CYP2U1 cyp2u1 (Catalog #MBS176297) is an Antibody produced from Rabbit and is intended for research purposes only. The product is available for immediate purchase. The Anti-CYP2U1 antibody reacts with Human and may cross-react with other species as described in the data sheet. MyBioSource\'s CYP2U1 can be used in a range of immunoassay formats including, but not limited to, Western Blot (WB), Immunohistochemistry (IHC) Paraffin, Immunocytochemistry (ICC). Researchers should empirically determine the suitability of the CYP2U1 cyp2u1 for an application not listed in the data sheet. Researchers commonly develop new applications and it is an integral, important part of the investigative research process.
The CYP2U1 cyp2u1 product has the following accession number(s) (GI #74762432) (NCBI Accession #Q7Z449.1) (Uniprot Accession #Q7Z449). Researchers may be interested in using Bioinformatics databases such as those available at The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) website for more information about accession numbers and the proteins they represent. Even researchers unfamiliar with bioinformatics databases will find the NCBI databases to be quite user friendly and useful.

Background: CYP2U1(Cytochrome P450, Family 2, Subfamily U, Polypeptide 1), is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CYP2U1 gene. Members of the P450 enzyme family have roles in the tissue-specific conversion of substrates into locally active hormones, vitamins, and signaling molecules, including arachidonic acid derivatives known as eicosanoids. The International Radiation Hybrid Mapping Consortium mapped the CYP2U1 gene to chromosome 4.Chuang et al.(2004) stated that CYP2U1 maps to 4q25. Using recombination experiments in Sf9 insect cells, Chuang et al.(2004) found that CYP2U1 metabolized arachidonic acid, docosahexaenoic acid(DHA), and other long chain fatty acids. Chuang et al.(2004) suggested that CYP2U1 may play a role in brain and immune functions.
Immunogen: A synthetic peptide corresponding to a sequence at the C-terminus of human CYP2U1 (457-473aa EKPEDFYPNRFLDDQGQ). Contents: Each vial contains 5mg BSA, 0.9mg NaCl, 0.2mg Na2HPO4, 0.05mg Thimerosal, 0.05mg NaN3.
Reconstitution: Add 0.2ml of distilled water will yield a concentration of 500ug/ml. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing CYP2U1 are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as CYP2U1 may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results.
