RDI Divison of Fitzgerald Industries Intl offers a wide line of antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.
Mab to Tenascin
Category Mouse monoclonal
Form :purified IgG
Ig Class IgG1
Antigen Isolated from human mammary tumor cells
Introduction Tenascin is a large hexameric extracellular matrix molecule with oncofetal properties. During embryonic development the protein is expressed in many parenchymatous organs, where it appears to have a regulating role in epithelial differentiation. In most mature tissues the expression is restricted to the papillary dermis, but reappears in tissue regeneration and repair and in neoplasia. In basal cell carcinoma two forms (Mr 210,000 and 300,000 kDa) of tenascin can be found, in contrast to normal skin and fibroblasts, where one form predominantly exists (Mr 300,000 kDa).
Clinical Application/Specificity Detects extracellular matrix glycoprotein Tenascin in connection with gliomas, mammary tumors and in proliferative skin diseases (psoriasis, skin tumors)
