Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E B IP IH
COX2 (Cyclooxygenase-2) is an inducible enzyme. It is involved in the response of cells to growth factors, tumor promoters, and cytokines that induce its expression. Given its role in synthesizing prostaglandins, COX2 is therefore of interest in studying immune response regulation. COX2 is induced by a wide variety of stimuli and was initially identified as immediate-early growth response gene. In addition, COX2 expression markedly increased in 85-90% of human colorectal adenocarcinoma whereas COX1 levels remain unchanged.
Catalog #C7904-87C
ApplicationsSuitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionWestern Blot: 2-4ug/ml for 2 hours at RT.
Immunohistochemistry Formalin/paraffin): 1:100 for 30 minutes. Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Positive ControlHT29 cells, lung and colon carcinoma
