Product Specific Information
PA1-036 detects inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) from human, mouse and rat tissues and cells as well as recombinant human and mouse iNOS. This antibody does not detect other NOS isoforms.

PA1-036 has been successfully use in Western blot and immunofluorescence procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~135 kDa protein representing recombinant human iNOS and human iNOS from cytokine stimulated A549 cells. By Western blot PA1-036 also detects purified recombinant mouse iNOS, mouse iNOS from cytokine stimulated RAW 264.7 cells and cytokine stimulated rat fibroblast iNOS, though the signals are not as strong as those seen with the human samples.

The PA1-036 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues D(17) L K E E K D I N N N V K K T(31) of mouse iNOS.
General Information
Nitric oxide (NO) is an inorganic, gaseous free radical that carries a variety of messages between cells. Vasorelaxation, neurotransmission and cytotoxicity can all be potentiated through cellular response to NO. NO production is mediated by members of the nitric oxide synthase (NOS) family. NOS catalyzes the oxidization of L-arginine to produce L-citrulline and NO. Two constitutive isoforms, brain or neuronal NOS (b or nNOS, type I) & endothelial cell NOS (eNOS, type III), and one inducible isoform (iNOS, type II), have been cloned. All NOS isoforms contain calmodulin, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH), flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), and flavin mononucleotide (FMN) binding domains.

iNOS is found in a variety of cell types including macrophages, hepatocytes, synoviocytes, and smooth muscle cells. Cytokines such as interferon-gamma (IFN), tumor necrosis factor (TNF), interleukin-1 and -2, and lipopolysaccarides (LPS) cause an increase in iNOS mRNA, protein, and activity levels. Protein kinase C-stimulating agents exhibit the same effect on iNOS activity. After cytokine induction, iNOS exhibits a delayed activity response which is then followed by a significant increase in NO production over a long period of time.

    Immunofluorescent analysis of iNOS in A549 Cells. Cells were grown on chamber slides and fixed with formaldehyde prior to staining. Cells were probed without (control) or with a iNOS polyclonal antibody (Product # PA1-036) at a dilution of 1:20 overnight at 4 C, washed with PBS and incubated with a DyLight-488 conjugated secondary antibody (Product # 35503). iNOS staining (green), F-Actin staining with Phalloidin (red) and nuclei with DAPI (blue) is shown. Images were taken at 60X magnification.

    Immunohistochemistry with anti-iNOS Polyclonal Antibody (PA1-036)

    Immunohistochemistry was performed on normal deparaffinized human Heart tissue. To expose target proteins, heat induced antigen retrieval was performed using 10mM sodium citrate (pH6.0) buffer, microwaved for 8-15 minutes. Following antigen retrieval tissues were blocked in 3% BSA-PBS for 30 minutes at room temperature. Tissues were then probed at a dilution of 1:200 with a rabbit polyclonal antibody recognizing iNOS (Product #PA1-036) or without primary antibody (negative control) overnight at 4°C in a humidified chamber. Tissues were washed extensively with PBST and endogenous peroxidase activity was quenched with a peroxidase suppressor. Detection was performed using a biotin-conjugated secondary antibody and SA-HRP, followed by colorimetric detection using DAB. Tissues were counterstained with hematoxylin and prepped for mounting.
