Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

Glutathione-S-Transferases (GSTs) are a family of dimeric proteins that catalyze the S-conjugation of glutathione with many compounds for detoxification. The GSTs are categorized into four classes based on their biochemical and structural properties: α, µ, π, and θ.  GST-π is of particular interest because it is over-expressed in many tumors, but is either absent or expressed at low levels in the corresponding normal tissues. This high expression of GST-π is associated with malignant transformation and correlates with a decrease in GST activity.  Three different GST-π proteins have been isolated and designated as hGSTP1*A, hGSTP1*B, and hGSTP1*C.  These isoforms are nearly identical, varying by only one to two amino acids.

This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
