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 30 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is esophageal carcinoma.
Cyclooxygenases 1 and 2 (COX-1, COX-2) are enzymes involved in the conversion of arichidonate to prostaglandins. COX-1 and COX-2 are very similar in structure and function, though they vary in expression. COX-1 is normally expressed in most cell types, whereas COX-2 expression is at low levels unless induced by hormonal stimuli. In some breast cancer and bladder carcinoma studies, COX-1 is expressed in the stroma cells adjacent to the tumors but not in tumor cells.
