PI-9 antibody | 7D8
Mouse anti Human PI-9
- Product Type
- Monoclonal Antibody
|Mouse anti Human PI-9 antibody, clone 7D8 recognizes human PI-9 (proteinase inhibitor 9), also known as SerpinB9, a ~42kDa intracellular nucleocytoplasmic serpin expressed in cytotoxic lymphocytes (CTLs), natural killer (NK) cells, monocyte-derived dendritic cells (DCs), and to a lesser extent in B cells and myeloid cells.
Granzyme B (grB) is a serine protease highly expressed by CTLs and NK cells, which is endocytosed by virus-infected and malignant target cells. The subsequent release of grB from the endocytic vesicles into the cytoplasm of the target cells, triggers grB-mediated apoptosis, through cleavage of various cytoplasmic or nuclear proteins. PI-9, up-regulated in response to grB production and degranulation, has been identified as a potent inhibitor of Granzyme B-mediated apoptosis, providing a vital self-protection mechanism against the premature apoptosis of CTLs and NK cells by grB, which may escape into the cytoplasm of the effector cells themselves.
Clone 7D8 has been reported to work in western blotting applications. Bio-Rad recommend the use of MCA2540GA for this purpose. Clone 7D8 is suitable for use in indirect Immunofluorescence (Hirst et al. 2003).
