The following infographicsummarizes three major aspects that will guide you in selecting the right antibody for your research.
Keratins are a large protein family. Expression and structure of its members is highly tissue and differentiation specific. As heteropolymers, keratins form intermediate filaments (IFs) with the primary task of providing a structural framework in epithelial cells that protects them from mechanical and non-mechanical stress. In addition, keratins are involved in establishing apico-basal polarization, regulating motility and cell size and even play a role in complex cellular events such as protein synthesis, membrane traffic or cell signaling [reviewed by Karantza, 2011; Oncogene 30:127–138].
A cancer antibody that stains positively approx. 60 % of investigated carcinoma of lung, breast, colon, stomach, esophagus, pancreas, urinary bladder and testis, head and neck tumors; T-cell Leukemia, non-Hodgkin-Lymphoma, melanoma, sarcoma.
Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV) is a nonpathogenic virus that is widely used as vector in gene therapy. In view of this scientific and preclinical significance, PROGEN is providing AAV antibodies that specifically recognize intact virus capsids as well as antibodies specific to AA-viral subunits and replicases.
PERILIPINs are proteins of the membrane surrounding lipid droplets (LD). Perilipin antibodies are useful for the characterization of LD subpopulations with their multifunctional properties in health and disease, including lipid transport, lipogenesis and lypolysis.
