Breast Cancer Resistance Protein (BCRP)
Description:
Breast Cancer Resistance Protein (BCRP) is a 70kD ATP-Binding Cassette membrane transport protein involved in multidrug resistance. BCRP may be over-expressed in cancer cell lines selected with doxorubicin / verapamil, topotecan or mitoxantrone.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunohistochemistry (Frozen): 1:20 dilution on acetone fixed frozen sections followed by incubation with rabbit anti-mouse IgG and a monoclonal mouse APAAP complex.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): Use on formaldehyde-fixed paraffin-embedded human tissues and tumors after pretreatment with 10mM citric acid, pH 6.0, for 20 min.
Immunocytochemistry: 1:20-1:50 on acetone fixed cytospin preparations.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
