Anti-Prostein Polyclonal Antibody
Catalog No.: 34006
Size: 100 ug IgG in 100 ul (1 mg/ml) PBS.
Prostein is a novel prostate-specific protein expressed in normal and malignant prostate tissues. This protein appears to be a type IIIa plasma membrane protein with a cleavable signal peptide and 11 transmembrane-spanning regions. Prostein expression is androgen responsive since treatment of LNCaP cells with androgen up-regulates prostein message and protein expression levels. Thus, prostein is a prostate-specific marker whose detection and quantitation may be useful in diagnosing and monitoring prostate cancer.
Antigen: N-terminal sequence ITYVPPLLLEVGVEE and C-terminal Sequence FATQVVFDKSDLAKYSA of human prostein.
Host Species: Rabbit
Preservatives: 0.02% sodium azide.
