IHC of S100P on an FFPE Melanoma Tissue
|For In Vitro Diagnostic Use
|Summary and Explanation
|S100P is a member of the S100 family of proteins containing 2 EF-hand calcium binding motifs. S100 proteins are localized in the cytoplasm and/ or nucleus of a wide range of cells, and involved in the regulation of a number of cellular processes such as cell cycle progression and differentation. S100P is expressed in various normal tissues including placenta, bladder, spleen, gastric and intenstinal mucosa. Overexpression of S100P has been detected in several cancers such as colon, prostate, pancreatic and lung carcinomas. It has been functionally implicated in carcinogenic processes.
S100P is an early development marker of pancreatic carcinogenesis and can be used as a marker for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. It may also serve as a predictor of distant metastasis and poor survival in non-small cell lung carcinomas.
|Colon, Prostate, Pancreatic and Lung Carcinoma
|S100P is a rabbit monoclonal antibody derived from cell culture supernatant that is concentrated, dialyzed, filter sterilized and diluted in buffer pH 7.5, containing BSA and sodium azide as a preservative.
|Note: For concentrated antibodies, please centrifuge prior to use to ensure recovery of all product.
