Project Description

CYP450 Aromatase

CYP450 Aromatase is part of the CYP19A1 family involved in the aromatization of androgens to estrogens, a highly conserved mechanism amongst mammals. Clone H4 recognizes a conserved epitope on the CYP450 aromatase, allowing for detection of aromatase levels using various analysis methods. (Turner et al. 2002).

Clone H4 used to detect aromatase in human tissues by IHC-P.

A: Intense aromatase immunostaining in IGCN cells.
B: Placental-like alkaline phosphatase staining of IGCN basal cells
C: Strong aromatase immunoreactivity of interstitial Leydig cells in normal testis (Lc)

Binding of H4 to a 55 kDa protein on the Cytochrome P450 aromatase protein by Western Blot.

On Western blots, a single protein of _55 kDa was recognised by the monoclonal antibody raised against a peptide within the P450 aromatase protein (A). No signal was seen on blots incubated with antibody that had been pre-absorbed with immunising peptide (B). Extracts were prepared from the following tissues: lane 1, human placenta; lane 2, marmoset placenta; lane 3, marmoset ovary; lane 4, ovary from pregnant rat; lanes 5 and 6, ovaries from two rats killed at pro-oestrus.(Turner et al. 2002).

Dilution used: 1:5000

Clone H4 used to detect aromatase in pig sperm by Immunofluorescence.

B) P450arom red brilliant light in the proximal tail of sperm with a diffuse labelling in the distal tail…. (Rago, V et al. 2007)

Dilution used: 1:100

Clone H4 used to detect aromatase in stromal cells by ICC.

Immunocytochemical localization of aromatase in the stromal cells of an endometriotic lesion (B) and in granulosa cells of a developing follicle (C, positive control). The histology of this lesion (A). st = stromal cells. (Fazleabas,, AT et al.)

Dilution used: 1:75
