Product Preparation
A synthetic peptide derived from a non-phosphrylated serine surrounding the epitope -TSWESPKQI-of human AEG1. This sequence is identical to human, mouse, rat and bovine.
Background
AEG1 (Astrocyte elevated gene 1), also called MTDH (Metadherin), or L LYsine-RIch CEACAM1 co-isolated (LYRIC), is 582 aa single transmembrane domain (TMD) protein. It is widely expressed and highly conserved between species. It is recruited during the maturation of the tight junction complex and co-localizes with tight junction proteins ZO-1 and occludin in polarized epithelial cells. AEG-1 is involved in several crucial aspects of tumor progression, including transformation, evasion of apoptosis, invasion, metastasis, and chemoresistance. Overexpression of AEG-1 is frequently observed in melanoma, glioma, neuroblastoma, and carcinomas of breast, prostate, liver, and esophagus and is correlated with poor clinical outcomes. AEG-1 functions as a downstream mediator of the transforming activity of oncogenic Ha-Ras and c-Myc. Furthermore, AEG-1 overexpression activates the PI3K/Akt, nuclear factor ?B (NF?B), and Wnt/ß-catenin signaling pathways to stimulate proliferation, invasion, cell survival, and chemoresistance. The lung-homing domain of AEG-1 also mediates the adhesion of tumor cells to the vasculature of distant organs and promotes metastasis. These findings suggest that therapeutic targeting of AEG-1 may simultaneously suppress tumor growth, block metastasis, and enhance the efficacy of chemotherapeutic treatments.
PURIFICATION
The Rabbit IgG is purified by Epitope Affinity Purification
SPECIFICITY
This antibody recognizes Non-phosphospecific AEG1at surrounding Serine 568. It does not recognize phosphspecific site pSer568. This antibody reacts with human, mouse and rat origins. The other species are not tested.
FORMULATION
This affinity purified antibody is supplied in sterile Tris-buffered saline (pH7.2) containing antibody stabilizer.
STORAGE
The antibodies are stable for 12 months from date of receipt when stored at –20oC. The antibodies can be stored at 2oC-8oC for one month without detectable loss of activity. Avoid repeated freezing-thawing cycles.
