HMOX2/HO-2 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total HMOX2/HO-2 protein.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Met262 of human HMOX2/HO-2 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Heme oxygenases (HMOX or HO) catalyze the rate-limiting step of the oxidative degradation of heme into iron, carbon monoxide, and biliverdin (1). Biliverdin is then converted to bilirubin (2). Heme is a strong pro-oxidant whereas bilirubin is a strong antioxidant (2). Research studies suggest disregulation of heme oxygenases may contribute to oxidative stress-related diseases (2). There are three isozymes of heme oxygenases: HMOX1/HO-1, HMOX2/HO-2, and HMOX3/HO-3 (1,2). HMOX1/HO-1 is inducible by heme and other stress stimuli (1,3). HMOX2/HO-2 and HMOX3/HO-3 are constitutively expressed (1,3).
