Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 10 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is liver carcinoma.
The reduced form of thioredoxin serves as a hydrogen donor, contributes to the up-regulation of various transcription factors and binds to and inhibits MAPKKK activity. Oxidized thioredoxin is converted back to the reduced form by Thioredoxin Reductase (TrxR2), a redox active enzyme. There are two distinct isoforms in mammalian cells, TrxR1, a cytosolic protein and TrxR2, almost exclusively a mitochondrial protein. TrxR expression is induced in several tumors.
