Rabbit anti Uracil-DNA glycolase 1 antibody recognizes uracil-DNA glycosylase 1 (UNG1), a member of the uracil-DNA glycosylase and cyclin family. Two isoforms of UNG exist, isoform 1 is expressed in the mitochondria of in skeletal muscle, heart and testicles while isoform 2 (UNG2) is more abundant in proliferating tissues and expressed in the nucleus.

Uracil residues can be misincorporated into DNA by DNA polymerase or by deamination of cytosine. UNG1 is a major enzyme in base excision repair, excising the misincorporated uracil residues in a process crucial to increasing immunoglobulin diversity. In association with activation-induced cytosine deaminase, UNG is also essential to the generation of strand breaks that initiate class switch recombination.

UNG is also involved in the innate immune response against retroviral infections, HIV-1 accessory protein Vpr induces the rapid degradation of UNG2.
