Survivin (IAP)

Catalogue number: SUR002-G

Units5 ml
Application IHC(P)

The antibody is well suited for the immunohistochemical detection of Survivin in formaldehyde-fixed tissue slices. Survivin, an inhibitor of apoptosis protein (IAP), is expressed in the G2/M phase of the cell cycle. At the beginning of mitosis, survivin associates with microtubules of the mitotic spindle in a specific and saturable reaction that is regulated by microtubule dynamics. Disruption of survivin-microtubule interactions results in loss of survivin's anti-apoptosis function and increases caspase3 activity, a mechanism involved in cell death, during mitosis. The overexpression of survivin in cancer may overcome this apoptosis checkpoint and favour aberrant progression of transformed cells through mitosis. Human Survivin.
