Alternative Name IAP4 / BIRC5 (BIRC5 Antibody Abstract)
Background Regulated inhibition of programmed cell death (apoptosis) preserves normalhomeostasis and tissue and organ morphogenesis. Aberrations in this processcontribute to human diseases and cancer by abnormally prolonging cell viability. Recently, several apoptosis inhibitors related to the baculovirus iap gene have beenfound in various species, including human. IAP proteins contain one/three Cys/Hisbaculovirus IAP repeats plus a C-terminal RING finger and are thought to block anevolutionary conserved step in apoptosis.Survivin encodes a structurally unique inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP). Survivin expressionis turned off during fetal development and is not found in non-neoplastic adult humantissues. Survivin becomes abundantly re-expressed in transformed cells and in all ofthe most common cancers of lung, colon, pancreas, breast and prostate in vivo. Survivin appears to be situated at the crossroads of cell death and cell division,governing a checkpoint involved in cytokinesis while also suppressing apoptosis. Survivin is also abundantly expressed in brain tissues (astrocytes and some neurons) ofadult rats following traumatic brain injury. Survivin has been found co-expressed withNeuN (mature neuronal marker) and PCNA (a cell cycle protein). Survivin might affectregulation of neural cell proliferative responses after brain injury.

Application Notes This Survivin antibody is useful for Chromatin Immunoprecipitation, Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry on paraffin-embedded sections, Immunoprecipitation and Western Blot. In WB, a band at ~16.5 kDa can be seen. For IHC, prior antigen retrieval (pressure cooking) is recommended for cytoplasmic and nuclear detection of Survivin. Immunohistochemistry-Frozen and Flow Cytometry were reported in scientific literature.
Recommended dilutions: Chromatin Immunoprecipitation 1:10-1:500, ELISA, Flow Cytometry, Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence 1:50-1:250, Immunohistochemistry 1:50-1:100, Immunohistochemistry-Frozen, Immunohistochemistry-Paraffin 1:50-1:500, Immunoprecipitation 1:10-1:500, Western Blot 1 µg/mL
Protocol Western Blot Protocol Specific for Survivin Antibody Western Blot Procedure1) Cells were pelleted, washed in 1XPBS, suspended in ice water (~ 5 x 10(6) cells/ml), and placed on ice2) Lysates were prepared with the addition of 2X lysis buffer [2 % SDS/ 50mM Tris-HCl / 10 % glycerol]3) Lysates were heated to 95 degrees C for 3 minutes and then microfuged at room temperature for 10 minutes4) 50 µg of lysate were electrophoresed (150 V) through a 4-15 % PAGE5) Proteins were transferred (60 V) onto an Immobilon-P membrane (Millipore Corp.) for 45 minutes6) The blot was blocked overnight at 4 degrees C in blocking buffer [1XPBS, pH 7 / 5 % nonfat milk / 0.1 % Tween-20]7) Washed the blot in 1XPBS / 0.1 % Tween-208) Incubated the blot with 1 µg/ml of anti-Survivin antibody, diluted in blocking buffer, for 2 hours at room temperature9) Washed the blot in 1XPBS / 0.1 % Tween-2010) Reacted the blot with HRP-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit Ig, diluted in 1XPBS / 0.1 % Tween-20, for 30 minutes at room temperature11) Washed the blot in 1XPBS / 0.1 % Tween-2012) Visualized blot by ECL and autoradiographyNOTE: HeLa whole cell extracts were used as a positive control for this antibody.
Restrictions For Research Use only
Format Liquid
Concentration 1 mg/mL
Buffer Tris-glycine, 150 mM NaCl, Sodium Azide
Preservative Sodium azide
Precaution of Use WARNING: Reagents contain sodium azide. Sodium azide is very toxic if ingested or inhaled. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. Wear eye or face protection when handling. If skin or eye contact occurs, wash with copious amounts of water. If ingested or inhaled, contact a physician immediately. Sodium azide yields toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide-containing compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in lead or copper plumbing.
