MA1-25752 detects Involucrin from human, rat, canine, gorilla, monkey, owl, and porcine samples.
MA1-25752 has been successfully used in ELISA, Immunoflourescence, immunohistochemistry (paraffin), immunoprecipitation, and Western blot procedures. Perform enzymatic antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol. For staining formalin-fixed tissues, digest sections with trypsin at 1mg/ml PBS, for 10 min at 37°C. Note: Enzyme digestion is better than citrate buffer based epitope unmasking.
The MA1-25752 immunogen is purified, full length, native human protein.
Involucrin, a component of the keratinocyte crosslinked envelope, is found in the cytoplasm and crosslinked to membrane proteins by transglutaminase. Involucrin is expressed in a range of stratified squamous epithelia, including the cornea. In normal epidermis, it is first expressed in the upper spinous layers, and in keratinocyte cultures it is expressed by all cells that have left the basal layer. Involucrin expression is abnormal in squamous cell carcinomas and premalignant lesions and is reduced in severe dysplasias of the larynx and cervix. Its gene is mapped to 1q21, among calpactin I light chain, trichohyalin, profillaggrin, loricrin, and calcyclin.
