3-DG-Imidazolone (Advanced Glycation End Product)

Catalogue number: IMI043

Units50 µg
Application IHC(C

3-DG-derived imidazolone-AGE can be detected with help of this antibody (JNH-27) in renal tissue of hemodialysis patients, in lens cataracts of diabetes patients and in moto-neurons of lateral sclerotic patients. The antibody is suitable for studies of chronic diseases in which the build up of 3-DG-derived imidazolone-AGE may be causative. Long-term incubation of proteins with glucose leads, through Schiff's base and Amadori rearrangement products, to the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGE) which are characterized by fluorescence, brown color and inter- and intra-molecular cross-linking. Recent immunological studies using anti-AGE antibodies demonstrated the presence of AGE in (i) human lens, (ii) renal proximal tubules in patients with diabetic nephropathy and chronic renal failure, (iii) atherosclerotic lesions of arterial walls, (iv) ß2-microglobulin of carpal tunnel amyloid fibril deposits in patients with hemodialysis-related amyloidosis and (v) brain tissues of patients with Alzheimer’s disease. There is a non-oxidative pathway to the formation of AGE, which is executed via 3-Deoxyglucosone (3-DG). 3-DG is an intermediate product of the Maillard reaction, which forms Imidazolone by reacting with arginin residues of proteins.
