Goat anti 5-hydroxymethyluridine antibody recognises 5-hydroxymethyluridine, which is created by the oxidation of thymine by ionising radiation or reactive oxygen species. This oxidation causes changes in gene expression, mutations and chromosomal instability all of which play a role in cancer, autoimmune disease and aging. 5-hydroxymethyluridine is a potential biomarker for female breast, colon and rectal cancers, being present at elevated levels, possibly due to impaired DNA repair mechanisms.
Serum - liquid
Antisera to 5-hydroxymethyluridine were raised by repeated immunisations of goats with highly purified antigen.
