Immunogen GST fusion protein corresponding to the carboxy-terminus of Human Cox-2.
Specificity This antiserum is directed against Human Cox-2 and is useful in determining its presence in Western blotting and ELISA experiments. The antibody does not cross react with Cox-1. Cox-2 is involved in the response of cells to growth factors, tumor promoters, and cytokines that induce its expression. Given its role in synthesizing prostaglandins, Cox-2 is therefore of interest in studying immune response regulation. This antibody can detect Cox-2 in Human, Mouse and Rat.
Purification Serum
Alternative Name Cyclooxygenase 2 (PTGS2 Antibody Abstract)
Background Cox-2 (Cyclooxygenase-2) is an inducible enzyme that is normally absent from cells, however, in response to growth factors, tumor promoters and some cytokines, it undergoes a rapid and transient expression. COX-2, also known as prostaglandin H synthase, was identified less than a decade ago. Its discovery was followed by a period of discovery and drug development to create a "super aspirin" and led to insights into arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, colorectal cancer and regulation of brain and kidney function in search of better treatments for degenerative and inflammatory diseases. Two different isoforms of the enzyme are known, Cox-1 and Cox-2.Synonyms: COX2, Cyclooxygenase-2, PGH synthase 2, PGHS-2, PGHS2, PHS II, PTGS2, Prostaglandin G/H synthase 2, Prostaglandin H2 synthase 2, Prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 2
Gene ID 5743
NCBI Accession NP_000954
UniProt P35354
Application Notes This antibody has been tested for use in Immunoblotting and ELISA. The antibodyrecognizes Cox-2 at 70 kDa in Sf9 cell lines transfected with Cox-2 as well as in WISH cellsinduced with IL-1b. Reactivity in other immunoassays is unknown. Recommended Dilutions: This product was assayed by Immunoblot using HRP Goatanti-Rabbit IgG and ECL for detection. A working dilution of 1/5,000-1/10,000 is suggestedfor this assay. For ELISA a working dilution of 1/10,000-1/50,000 is suggested usingProtein A HRP and TMB as a substrate for 30 minutes at RT.
Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions are dependent on conditions and should be determined by the user.
