Goat anti Human glutathione peroxidase 1 antibody recognizes isoform 1 of human glutathione peroxidase 1 (GPX1), a ~22 kDa ubiquitously expressed selenium-dependent antioxidant enzyme and member of the glutathione peroxidase family, which catalyzes the glutathione-mediated reduction of toxic peroxides, protecting against oxidative damage and free radicals.
Genetic polymorphisms resulting in variants of GPX1 have been linked with various cancers, including lung cancer, bladder cancer, and a significantly increased risk of developing breast cancer.
Purified IgG - liquid
Antiserum to human GPX1 was raised by repeated immunisation of goats with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared from whole serum by affinity chromatography.
