Introduction

TOP1 is an important nuclear enzyme that interconverts supercoiled DNA to the necessary topological conformations for standard DNA replication and transcription. TOP1 is the target antigen for TOP1 autoantibodies. TOP1 antibodies are a specific marker in scleroderma patients (specificity 98-100%) and are related with the existence of diffuse skin involvement and pulmonary fibrosis. In human tissues top1 enzyme is primarily synthesized as a protein with a molecular weight of 100-kDa. Most of this precursor is then proteolytically processed to a 70-kDa size, from which the TOP1 antigen has derived its name.

Description

Recombinant TOP1 70kDa protein is an enzyme fragment having a molecular mass of 72KDa (pH 9.4). TOP1 70kDa protein is fused to a hexa-histidine purification tag.

Source

Sf9 insect cells.

Formulation

TOP1 70kDa is supplied in 20mM HEPES buffer pH-8.0, 500mM NaCl, and 20% glycerol.

Immunological functions

1. Binds IgG-type human auto-antibodies.

2. Standard ELISA test (checkerboard analysis of positive/negative samples) and immunodot test with positive/negative samples.

Applications

Western blot with anti TOP1 70kDa autoantibody positive sample or monoclonal anti-hexa-His-tag antibody.

Coating concentration

0.5-0.8 µg/ml (depending on the type of ELISA plate and coating buffer). Suitable for labeling of functional groups.

Purity

Greater than 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
