Mouse Anti Human Monoclonal.
PDCD4 is restricted to the nucleus in proliferating cells. Expression of PDCD4 is modulated by cytokines in natural killer and T cells. PDCD4 takes part in apoptosis. PDCD4 is a translation inhibitor targeted for degradation during tumor promotion. PDCD4 promotes colonic neoplastic transformation and tumor invasion. PDCD4 is an important target for microrna R-21 in breast cancer cells. Shortage of PDCD4 expression is associated with colorectal cancer. PDCD4 is swiftly phosphorylated by S6K1 kinase protein & afterwords degraded by ubiquitin ligase SCF in response to mitogens. PDCD4 in response to mitogens allows competent protein synthesis & cell growth. PDCD4 is a proapoptotic protein involved in TGF-beta1-induced apoptosis in human HCC cells, and a tumor suppressor in hepatocarcinogenesis. PDCD4 restraines tumor progression in colon carcinoma cells by the novel mechanism of down-regulating MAP4K1 transcription, with consequent inhibition of c-Jun activation and AP-1-dependent transcri
Anti-human PDCD4 mAb is derived from hybridization of mouse FO myeloma cells with spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with recombinant human PDCD4 amino acids 1-469 purified from E. coli.
Mouse IgG1 heavy chain and κ light chain.
PDCD4 antibody was purified from mouse ascitic fluids by protein-G affinity chromatography.
1mg/ml containing PBS, pH-7.4, & 0.1% Sodium Azide.
For periods up to 1 month store at 4°C, for longer periods of time, store at -20°C. Prevent freeze thaw cycles.
Stability / Shelf Life
12 months at -20°C. 1 month at 4°C.
PDCD4 antibody has been tested by ELISA and Western blot analysis to assure specificity and reactivity. Since application varies, however, each investigation should be titrated by the reagent to obtain optimal results. Recommended dilution range for Western blot analysis is 1:1,000~ 3,000. Recommended starting dilution is 1:2,000.
