Mouse anti Human only p53 (a.a. 20-25)Catalog number: X1495M
p53 is a 53 kDa transcription factor that can inhibit cell cycle progression or induce apoptosis in response to stress or DNA damage. Disruption of the p53 signalling pathway through various mechanisms is the most common alteration in human cancer occuring in over half of all tumors. The p53 protein is short lived and expressed at low levels in normal cells but accumulates and/or is activated in cells that have undergone genotoxic damage or oncogene activation. Many tumor derived and transformed cell lines express elevated levels of mutant p53 protein. Other genes also implicated in the downstream effects as a result of p53 activation are: p21WAF1, GADD45, 14-3-3, bax, Fas/APO1, KILLER/ DR5, Tsp1, IGF-BP3 and others.
Immunogen: Hybridoma produced by the fusion of splenocytes from immunized with full length wild-type human p53 protein and mouse myeloma cells.
Product Form: Unconjugated
Formulation: Provided as solution in phosphate buffered saline with 0.08% sodium azide
Purification Method: Protein A/G Chromatography
Concentration: See vial for concentration
This antibody can be used for Western blotting (0.5-1 µg/ml), immunohistochemistry on formalin/paraffain embedded tissues (1-2 µg/ml) and immunoprecipitation (2 µg/mg of protein lysate). Antibody reacts with mutant as well as wild-type p53 protein. Optimal concentration should be evaluated by serial dilutions.
