Anti-DDB1 Antibody

This rabbit polyclonal antibody was generated against a synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 198-213 of human damage-specific DNA binding protein 1 (DDB1) and recognizes human and mouse DDB1.


  • Reacts with human and mouse DDB1
  • Suitable for Western Blot, ELISA, and Immunoprecipitation applications

DDB1 is also known as damage-specific DNA binding protein 1, DDB p127 subunit, DDBa, UV-damaged DNA-binding protein 1, UV-DDB 1, Xeroderma pigmentosum group E complementing protein, XPCe, X-associated protein 1 and XAP-1. The DDB1 gene encodes the large subunit (p127) of DNA damage-binding protein, which is a heterodimer, composed of a large and a small subunit (p48 DDB2). This nuclear protein functions in nucleotide-excision repair resulting from UV-damaged DNA by binding to pyrimidine dimers. Its defective activity causes the repair defect in the patients with xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group E (XPE). XP-E is a rare human autosomal recessive disease characterized by solar sensitivity, high predisposition for developing cancers on areas exposed to sunlight and, in some cases, neurological abnormalities. DDB1 antibody is involved in Epigenetic and Cancer/DNA Damage research.

Western Blot

From the laboratory of Yue Xiong, PhD, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.

Anti-DDB1 antibody reacts with human and mouse DDB1 by western blot and immunoprecipitation. The antibody immunoprecipitates in vitro translated protein and protein from cell lysates (using HeLa, NIH-3T3, and others). Coimmunoprecipitation of related proteins has not been tested. A 127.0 kDa band corresponding to human DDB1 is detected. Most cell lines expressing DDB1 can be used as a positive control. Researchers should determine optimal titers for other applications.

The protein encoded by this gene is the large subunit (p127) of the heterodimeric DNA damage-binding (DDB) complex while another protein (p48) forms the small subunit. This protein complex functions in nucleotide-excision repair and binds to DNA following UV damage.
