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

Bovine DNA Topoisomerase-I purified from bovine tissues by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Bovine tissues.

TOP1 is supplied at a concentration of 1mg/1ml in 16mM HEPES buffer pH-7.5, 400mM NaCl and 20% glycerol.

Immunological functions

1. Binds IgG-type human auto-antibodies.
2. Standard ELISA test (checkerboard analysis of positive/negative sera panels) and immunodot test with positive/negative sera panels.

Applications

Western blot with Scleroderma positive patient sera.
