Detection of Human/Mouse Park7/DJ‑1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line, MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line, U937 human histiocytic lymphoma cell line, and C2C12 mouse myoblast cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Human/Mouse Park7/DJ‑1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3668) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for Park7/DJ‑1 at approximately 30 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Park7/DJ‑1 in HeLa Human Cell Line. Park7/DJ‑1 was detected in immersion fixed HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line using Goat Anti-Human/Mouse Park7/DJ‑1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3668) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Park7, also known as DJ-1, is a cytoplasmic protein that belongs to the
ThiJ/Pfp1/DJ-1 superfamily of highly conserved proteins that function
as protein chaperones, catalases, proteases and kinases. Park7 is
widely expressed in the brain as well as in peripheral tissues. It
exists as a homodimer that can be localized in the cytoplasm, nucleus
and mitochondria. Park7 is a redox-sensitive protein that has been
ascribed various functions including that as a redox sensor and
antioxidant protein. Mutations in Park7 are associated with a small
percentage of hereditary early onset Parkinson’s disease. Human and
mouse Park7 share 92% amino acid sequence identity.
