A number of chemicals, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), have been shown to bind to DNA. This DNA damage can occur both early and late in the malignant process, thereby acting as an initiator and assisting in the progression of tumors. PAHs are released into the environment following incomplete combustion of organic materials. The most common sources of PAHs are from smoking and from consuming broiled or grilled foods. Human exposure to PAHs comes from various occupational, environmental, dietary and medicinal sources. Benzo[a]pyrene is a representative PAH. Antibodies to benzo[a]pyrenediol-epoxide modified DNA (BPDE-DNA) can be used to identify polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-DNA adducts. Exposure to this group of compounds is believed to be carcinogenic. The monoclonal antibody 5D11 recognizes BPDE-I-DNA (PAH-DNA).

Application Notes
FC: Washed sperm was fixed in 2% paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.2% triton x-100/0.1% sodium citrate. Samples were treated with protK and RNase. To denature DNA samples were incubated with 4n HCl. After blocking with 5% normal serum samples were incubated with mAb.
IA: plates were coated with 50 ng/well BPDE-DNA in 50mM Tris-buffer pH7.5 o/n at 4°C. Plates were blocked 1% FCS. DNA samples, 4μg, were mixed with 5D11 and added to the well. Detection with GtαMs-IgG-AP for 90’at 37°C.
P: 5 μm sections were RNase and prot-K treated. DNA was denatured with 4N HCl and neutralized with 50mM Tris base. Section was blocked with 1.5% normal horse serum.

For immunohistochemistry dilutions to be used depend on detection system applied. It is recommended that users test the reagent and determine their own optimal dilutions. The typical starting working dilution is 1:10.

  • New Human Complement Pathway Assays
    We are very proud of our newly developed human classical and alternative complement pathway assays. They are produced in response to a growing demand for quantitative investigation of complement inhibitors or regulators at lower sample dilutions. This development aims to address the issue of false negative results, enabling more accurate and reliable analysis of complement… Read more: New Human Complement Pathway Assays
  • Navigating the pitfalls in complement analysis
    Our colleague Erik Toonen shared his experience on how to analyze complement at the Complement-based Drug Development Summit in Boston in September 11-13th, 2023. He showed valuable insights on analyzing complements. For accurate complement analysis, it is important that not only the correct technique is used but also that pre-analytical sample handling is performed in… Read more: Navigating the pitfalls in complement analysis
  • NEW Human C3d ELISA
    We are happy to introduce our new ELISA (cat.# HK3017) designed to detect human C3d. What sets this assay apart is its utilization of a distinctive neo-epitope capture antibody that selectively targets a specific C3d region of the alpha chain, which is not available in other C3 variants. This way it specifically distinguishes C3d from native C3… Read more: NEW Human C3d ELISA
