Mouse anti Human prostate specific antigen antibody, clone P4 recognises prostate specific antigen (PSA), a serine protease produced by prostatic epithelial cells, which is also known as kallikrein 3. Serum PSA levels have been correlated with the stage of prostatic cancer, and have been used to monitor residual tumour levels and disease progression.
Mouse anti Human prostate specific antigen antibody, clone P4 has also been known by the clone designation BGN/PSA6.

Applications of Prostate Specific Antigen antibody
|Immunohistology - Paraffin 1
- 1This product requires antigen retrieval using heat treatment prior to staining of paraffin sections.
Where this product has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the product for use in their own system using the appropriate negative/positive controls.
- Western Blotting
- Under non-reducing conditions a PSA triplet is observed at approx 30kDa. Under reducing conditions a doublet can be observed.
