Survivin Antibody

Survivin Antibody

Catalog# : 2235

Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is related to many diseases, such as cancer. Apoptosis is triggered by a variety of stimuli including members in the TNF family and prevented by the inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) proteins. IAP proteins form a conserved gene family that binds to and inhibits cell death proteases. A novel IAP protein was recently identified and designated survivin, apoptosis inhibitor 4 (API4), and TIAP (1-3). Survivin/TIAP interacted with the processed form of caspase-3 and inhibited its proteolytic activity. Survivin/TIAP is predominantly expressed in tissues of embryos, transformed cell lines, and many human cancers and lymphomas (1,3).

Source : Survivin antibody was raised against a peptide corresponding to amino acids near the carboxy-terminus of human survivin.

Purification : Affinity chromatography purified via peptide column

Clonality and Clone : This is a polyclonal antibody.

Host : Survivin antibody was raised in rabbit. Please use anti-rabbit secondary antibodies.

Immunogen : Human Survivin (C-Terminus) Peptide (Cat. No. 2235P)

Application : Survivin antibody can be used for detection of survivin by Western blot at 0.5 to 1 µg/ml.An approximate 17 kDa band should be detected.

Tested Application(s) : E, WB, ICC

Buffer : Antibody is supplied in PBS containing 0.02% sodium azide.

Blocking Peptide : Cat. No. 2235P - Survivin Peptide

Long-Term Storage : Survivin antibody can be stored at 4ºC, stable for one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.
