Alternative Name MART-1 (MLANA Antibody Abstract)
Background MART-1 has been widely studied as a melanoma-specific antigen and as amelanosome-specific marker. A role for MART-1 in pigmentation is expected becauseits expression pattern and subcellular distribution is quite similar to the othermelanosomal proteins and usually correlates with melanin content. MART-1 forms acomplex with Pmel17 and affects its expression, stability, trafficking, and the processingwhich is required for melanosome structure and maturation. MART-1 is indispensablefor Pmel17 function and thus plays an important role in regulating mammalianpigmentation (1). A gene has been identified that encodes a melanocyte lineage-specificprotein (MART-1, melanoma antigen recognized by T cells 1) that is a widely sharedmelanoma antigen recognized by the T lymphocytes of patients with establishedmalignancy. Identification of this gene opens possibilities for the development ofimmunotherapies for patients with melanoma (2). Alternate Names: anti-Antigen LB39 AA antibody, anti-Antigen SK29 AA antibody, anti-MART 1 antibody,anti-MART1 antibody, anti-Melan A antibody, anti-Melan A protein antibody,anti-Melanoma antigen recognized by T cells 1 antibody, anti-MLAN A antibody,anti-MLANA antibody.

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.
