Equally recognizes two proteins: 116kDa (triplet) and 81kDa (singlet), identified as the hormone-binding high (B) and low (A) MW forms of human PgR. Expression of PgR has been suggested to reflect a intact estrogen regulatory machinery and therefore, predict better clinical response to endocrine therapy than ER alone. This antibody is excellent for immunohistochemical staining of formalin/paraffin tissues.


Hybridoma produced by the fusion of splenocytes from RBF/DN mice immunized with PgR from a human endometrial carcinoma (EnCa 101) grown in athymic mice and mouse myeloma HL-1 Friendly cells.

Positive Control

T47D or breast carcinoma


Provided as solution in phosphate buffered saline with 0.08% sodium azide

Customer Storage

Product should be stored at -20ºC. Aliquot to avoid freeze/thaw cycles
