Mouse monoclonal antibody raised against partial recombinant ABCG2.
Recombinant protein corresponding to amino acids 271-396 of human ABCG2.
BXP-21 reacts with an internal epitope of BCRP, a 70 kD transmembrane half-transporter which is involved in Multidrug resistance. BXP-21 did not cross-react with the human MDR1, MRP1, MRP2 gene products.
Immunocytochemistry (1:20-1:50) Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections) (1:20) The optimal working dilution should be determined by the end user.
In serum-free culture supernatant (0.7% BSA, 0.09% sodium azide)
Store at 4°C. For long term storage store at -20°C. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
This product contains sodium azide: a POISONOUS AND HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE which should be handled by trained staff only.
The membrane-associated protein encoded by this gene is included in the superfamily of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters. ABC proteins transport various molecules across extra- and intra-cellular membranes. ABC genes are divided into seven distinct subfamilies (ABC1, MDR/TAP, MRP, ALD, OABP, GCN20, White). This protein is a member of the White subfamily. Alternatively referred to as a breast cancer resistance protein, this protein functions as a xenobiotic transporter which may play a major role in multi-drug resistance. It likely serves as a cellular defense mechanism in response to mitoxantrone and anthracycline exposure. Significant expression of this protein has been observed in the placenta, which may suggest a potential role for this molecule in placenta tissue. [provided by RefSeq
