Code N°


AR105: Androgen Receptor




Price: 360 € / 1 ml

Monoclonal Antibodies

Origin:Mouse
 
Isotype:IgG1
 
Clone:F39.4.1
 
Format:liquid conc.
 
Quantity:1 ml
 
Working concentration:1:5 - 1:50 depending on unmasking method and secondary system
 
Presentation:Cell culture medium in stabilizing phosphate buffer pH 7.3. Contains 0.09 % sodium azide**. The volume is sufficient for at least 100 immunohistochemical tests (100 µl working solution / test). Use appropriate antibody diluent e.g. BIOLOGO Art .No. PU002.
 
Immunogen:Recomb. N-terminal Sequence (321 AS) of human Androg Receptor
 
Specificity:Human Androgen Receptor
 
Species Specificity:Human (rat)
 
General Information:For information transmission to the target cells male steroid hormones like Testosteron and DHT require a specific receptor. This specific receptor, called androgen receptor, is found in numerous human tissues like skin, mucous membranes, seminal vesicles, prostate gland and testis. Androgen receptors will also be found in human tumours like prostate carcinoma, osteosarkoma and others. In prostate carcinoma the clinical relevance has been proven by castration and androgen deprivation by Gn-RH-agonist and -antagonist treatment. In many cases androgen deprivation slows down tumour growth in androgen-dependent prostate carcinoma.
 
Special properties:The antibody to androgen receptors binds to these proteins in nuclei of typical normal tissues. Over-expression may be observed in tumours like prostate carcinoma and osteosarcoma.
 
Positive control:Testis
 
Pre-treatment:Heat pre-treatment of formalin-fixed tissue with Unmasking Fluid C or G (Art. No. DE000 and DE007)
 
Applications:C, P
 
Incubation time:60 min at RT
 
Secondary reagents:We recommend the use of BIOLOGO's Universal Staining System DAB (Art. No. DA005) or AEC (Art.-No. AE005), if higher sensitivity is required VECTASTAIN Elite ABC (Art. No. PK-6102) or ABC AP (Art. No. AK-5002) systems are applicable.
 
Storage:2-8°C

Notes:
** The preservative sodium azide is known to be poisonous and potentially hazardous to health. It should be handled only by trained staff. Despite of the product's low azide concentration it must be handled with care. Dispose according to regional rules!

BIOLOGO antibodies are intended for in vitro research use only. They must not be used for clinical diagnostics and not for in vivo experiments in humans or animals.
