Technical Data
Papilloma Virus, Human, Type 18, E6 (hPV, Human Papillomavirus Type 18 E6, E6, Early Protein E6, HpV18gp1, Protein E6)
The human papilloma virus (HPV) family of DNA tumor viruses includes HPV-16 and HPV-18, which are associated with a large proportion of cervical cancer cases. HPV early proteins E6 and E7 are the major viral oncoproteins that regulate cell proliferation through the inactivation of p53 and Rb1 tumour suppressor proteins respectively. BF7 can be used for detection of HPV in cervical smears and biopsies and analysis of E6 expression in cell transformation studies.

Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunohistochemistry: Formalin fixed, paraffin embedded sections. E6 levels too low for Immunofluorescence.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

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