Immunogen A synthetic peptide corresponding to a sequence at the N-terminal of human COX-2, different from the related rat sequence by two amino acids.< br/>Immunogen was affinity purified.
Isotype IgG
Cross-Reactivity Mouse (Murine), Rat (Rattus)
Cross-Reactivity (Details) No cross reactivity with other proteins.
Characteristics Rabbit IgG polyclonal antibody for Prostaglandin G/H synthase 2 (PTGS2) detection. Tested with WB, IHC-P in Human, Mouse, Rat.
Alternative Name Prostaglandin G/H synthase 2 (PTGS2 Antibody Abstract)
Background Cyclooxygenase (Cox) is the key enzyme in conversion of arachidonic acid to PGs, and two isoforms, Cox-1 and Cox-2, have been identified. Cox-2 gene encodes an inducible prostaglandin synthase enzyme that is overexpressed in adenocarcinomas and other tumors. Deletion of the murine Cox-2 gene in Min mice reduced the incidence of intestinal tumors, suggesting that it is required for tumorigenesis. This gene is localized to sites associated with retinal blood vessels, and plays an important role in blood vessel formation in the retina. And the glucocorticoid receptor suppression of COX-2 is also crucial for curtailing lethal immune activation, and suggest new therapeutic approaches for regulation of T-cell-mediated inflammatory diseases.
