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 tumor suppressor proteins respectively. 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 ELISA, Western Blot, Immunohistochemistry (paraffin), and RIA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and 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.
