What  is 8-OHdG?
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) and oxidative stress may be crucial for development
of various diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and may play an important role in the
aging process. 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) is a product of oxidatively
damaged DNA formed by hydroxy radical, singlet oxygen and direct photodynamic
action. 8-OHdG can be detected in tissue, serum, urine and other biomaterials.
Anti 8-OHdG monoclonal antibody (clone N45.1) is highly specific for 8-OHdG, and
is suitable for immunohistochemistry.

This is an application example for anti 8-OHdG monoclonal antibody (clone N45.1). Experimental conditions should be determined individually by each user.

1) Fixation:

Fix the fresh tissues with Bouin’s Solution (Saturated Picric Acid: Formaldehyde: Acetic Acid : H2O = 15:5:1:10) overnight.
Please note that use of specimens fixed in the same conditions are recommended for quantitative analyses.

2)  Deparaffinization (In case of paraffin embedded specimens):

Deparaffin with xylene and ethanol.

3)  Antigen Retrieval (In case of fixation with formaldehyde): 

Microwave method or Autoclave method is recommended.

4) Avidin Biotin Complex (ABC) Method:

Apply normal rabbit serum (Diluted to 1:75) (DAKO corporation, Kyoto, Japan) to the specimens for the inhibition of non-specific binding of secondary antibody.
Apply N45.1 (1-10microgram/ml) to the specimens, incubate overnight at 4 degree C.
Apply biotin-labeled rabbit anti-mouse IgG serum
(Dako; Diluted to 1:300) for 40min at room temperature.
Apply avidin-biotin-alkaline phosphatase complex (Vector Lab., Burlingame, CA; Diluted to 1:100) for 40min at room temperature.
Staining. Use a kit of black substrate for alkaline phosphatase (Vector).
