Specific for MTDH
MTDH is a metastasis gene which is overexpressed in more than 40% of breast cancers and is associated with poor clinical outcomes. Functional characterization of MTDH revealed its dual role in promoting metastatic seeding and enhancing chemoresistance. These findings establish MTDH as an important therapeutic target for simultaneously enhancing chemotherapy efficacy and reducing metastasis risk. Elevated MTDH protein level is an important prognostic factor independent of other clinicopathological factors.
Oligoclonal Antibody Advantages Include:
- Superior lot-to-lot consistency
- Extremely high specificity and sensitivity
- Validated for western blot and indirect ELISA
Life Technologies oligoclonal antibodies are a pool of monoclonalrabbit IgG antibodies targeted against a specific antigen. Oligoclonalantibodies are produced by transfection of mammalian cells with heavyand light chain antibody cDNAs. This provides you with the highestconsistency between lots, eliminating the need to revalidate yourassays for each lot.
Detect Low Levels of Target Protein
Life Technologies oligoclonal antibodies demonstrate much highersensitivity than ordinary antibodies. Proteins expressed in low levelscan be detected with high specificity allowing you to use less of yourprecious samples than with ordinary antibodies.
Recombinant Rabbit IgG—Use Like Any Other IgGAntibody
As with traditional IgG antibodies, gel electrophoresis of rabbitoligoclonal antibodies produces a 150 kDa band under non-reducingconditions and 50 kDa and 25 kDa bands under reducing conditions.
