Technical Data
Axin, aa898-912
Axin, an important regulator of beta-catenin, is frequently mutated in human hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs), and transduction of the wild-type Axin gene (AXIN1) induces apoptosis in HCC cells as well as in colon cancer cells. A novel gene, AXUD1 (AXIN 1 up-regulated), has enhanced expression in response to exogenously expressed AXIN1. It is expressed in all human tissues examined, most abundantly in lung, placenta, skeletal muscle, pancreas and leukocytes.

Western Blotting: 1-2ug/ml detectsAxin in RIPA lysates from Cos-1 cells transfected with full length, mouse axin. Lysates of Cos-1 cells untransfected (lane 1) and expressing transfected Axin (lane 2) were resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose and probed with anti-Axin (1ug/ml). Proteins were visualized using a goat anti-rabbit secondary antibody conjugated to HRP and a chemiluminescence detection system.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
