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 breast or colon carcinoma.
The c-Met oncogene was originally isolated from a chemical carcinogen-treated human osteogenic sarcoma cell line by transfection analysis in NIH/3T3 cells. The Met proto-oncogene product was identified as a trans-membrane receptor-like protein with tyrosine kinase activity that is expressed in many tissues. The c-Met gene product has been identified as the cell surface receptor for hepatocyte growth factor, a plasminogen-like protein thought to be a humoral mediator of liver regeneration.
