Regulated inhibition of programmed cell death (apoptosis) preserves normal homeostasis and tissue and organ morphogenesis. Aberrations in this process contribute to human diseases and cancer by abnormally prolonging cell viability. Recently, several apoptosis inhibitors related to the baculovirus iap gene have been found in various species, including human. IAP proteins contain one/three Cys/His baculovirus IAP repeats plus a c-terminus RING finger and are thought to block an evolutionary conserved step in apoptosis. Survivin encodes a structurally unique inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP). Survivin expression is turned off during fetal development and is not found in non-neoplastic adult human tissues. Survivin becomes abundantly re-expressed in transformed cells and in all of the most common cancers of lung, colon, pancreas, breast and prostate in vivo. Survivin appears to be situated at the crossroads of cell death and cell division, governing a checkpoint involved in cytokinesis while also suppressing apoptosis. Survivin is also abundantly expressed in brain tissues (astrocytes and some neurons) of adult rats following traumatic brain injury. Survivin has been found co-expressed with NeuN (mature neuronal marker) and PCNA (a cell cycle protein). Survivin might affect regulation of neural cell proliferative responses after brain injury. Applications: Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Western Blot, Immunohistochemistry (paraffin-embedded sections) and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested. Recommended Dilution: Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher. Storage and Stability: May be stored at 4 degrees C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20 degrees C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20 degrees C. 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.
