Specificity / Sensitivity
PCNA (PC10) Mouse mAb (Alexa Fluor® 488 Conjugate) detects endogenous levels of total PCNA protein.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a recombinant Protein A-PCNA fusion protein obtained from pC2T.
Flow cytometric analysis of Jurkat cells using PCNA (PC10) Mouse mAb (Alexa Fluor® 488 Conjugate) and propidium iodide (DNA content).
Confocal immunofluorescent analysis of NCI-H460 cells using PCNA (PC10) Mouse mAb (Alexa Fluor® 488 Conjugate) (green), p21 Waf1/Cip1 (12D1) Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 647 Conjugate) #8587 (blue pseudocolor), and Phospho-Histone H3 (Ser10) (D2C8) XP® Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 555 Conjugate) #3475 (red).
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 488 fluorescent dye and tested in-house for direct flow cytometric and immunofluorescent analysis in human cells. The antibody is expected to exhibit the same species cross-reactivity as the unconjugated PCNA (PC10) Mouse mAb #2586.
Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) is a member of the DNA sliding clamp family of proteins that assist in DNA replication (1). Crystal structure data suggests that a PCNA homotrimer ring can encircle and slide along the DNA double helix (2). Multiple proteins involved in DNA replication, DNA repair, and cell cycle control bind to PCNA rather than directly associating with DNA, thus facilitating fast processing of DNA (reviewed in 3). PCNA protein expression is a well-accepted marker of proliferation and PCNA (PC10) Mouse mAb has been used to assess PCNA levels in hundreds of scientific studies.
