alpha ‑L‑Iduronidase/IDUA in HepG2 Human Cell Line.
alpha ‑L‑Iduronidase/IDUA was detected in immersion fixed HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line using Sheep Anti-Human alpha ‑L‑Iduronidase/IDUA Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4119) at 15 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL010) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

alpha -L-Iduronidase encoded by the IDUA gene is an important enzyme required for the lysosomal degradation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). It hydrolyzes the non‑reducing terminal alpha -L-iduronic acid residues in GAGs including dermatan sulfate and heparan sulfate. Mutations in IDUA that result in enzymatic deficiency lead to the autosomal recessive disease mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS I) (1). MPS I causes progressive cellular, tissue and organ damage, and several clinical studies using enzyme replacement therapy have shown promising benefits (2).
