Detects human, mouse, and rat Peroxiredoxin 2 in Western blots. In Western blots, approximately 25%-40% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) Peroxiredoxin 1 and 4 is observed, and less than 10% cross-reactivity with rhPeroxiredoxin 3, 5, and 6 is observed. In direct ELISAs, approximately 15%-25% cross-reactivity with rhPeroxiredoxin 1 and 4 is observed, and less than 5% cross-reactivity with rhPeroxiredoxin 3, 5, or 6 is observed.

Detection of Human/Mouse/Rat Peroxiredoxin 2 by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of Raji human Burkitt's lymphoma cell line, NIH‑3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line, and NRK rat normal kidney cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Peroxiredoxin 2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3489) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Peroxiredoxin 2 at approximately 24 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 2.

Background: Peroxiredoxin 2
Human peroxiredoxin-2 (Prx-2 or PRDX2; also Thioredoxin Peroxidase 1) is a 22 kDa antioxidant enzyme that belongs to the typical 2-Cys class of the THP/ahpC family of proteins. The precursor molecule is 198 amino acids (aa) in length, and has two catalytic cysteines, one at Cys50 and a second at Cys171. Prx-2 is an obligate homodimer. Inactive, it is apparently noncovalently associated. Upon peroxide binding to Cys50 of subunit 1, the Cys171 of subunit 2 interacts with Cys50 of subunit 1 to complete the antioxidation, generating a disulfide bond between Cys50 and Cys171. Subsequent reduction restores the subunits to the basal state. There are two additional isoforms. Isoform-b shows a deletion of aa 36‑86, while isoform c shows a substitution of 56 aa after residue 86. Human Prx-2 is 93% aa identical to mouse and rat Prx-2.
