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-terminus 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 (32.1) antibody is useful for Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry on paraffin-embedded sections and Western blot. ELISA was reported in scientific literature. By WB, this antibody recognizes a band at ~16.5 kDa representing Survivin. *The investigator should determine the optimal working dilution for a specific application.
Recommended dilutions: ELISA, Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence 1:10-1:500, Immunohistochemistry 20 µg/mL, Immunohistochemistry-Paraffin 20 µg/mL, Immunoprecipitation, Western Blot 1:1000
Protocol Protocol specific for Survivin Antibody IHC-FFPE sections I. Deparaffinization:A. Treat slides with Xylene: 3 changes for 5 minutes each. Drain slides for 10 seconds between changes. B. Treat slides with 100 % Reagent Alcohol: 3 changes for 5 minutes each. Drain slides for 10 seconds between changes. II. Quench Endogenous Peroxidase: A. Place slides in peroxidase quenching solution: 15-30 minutes. To Prepare 200 mL of Quenching Solution: Add 3 mL of 30 % Hydrogen Peroxide to 200 mL of Methanol. Use within 4 hours of preparation B. Place slides in distilled water: 2 changes for 2 minutes each. III. Retrieve Epitopes: A. Preheat Citrate
Restrictions For Research Use only
Format Liquid
Concentration 1.9 mg/mL
Buffer PBS, 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.
