Mouse anti SMC1A antibody
recognizes structural maintenance of chromosomes protein 1A (SMC1A), also known as SMC-1-alpha. SMC1A is a member of the SMC superfamily and a component of the cohesin complex (Michaelis, C. et al. 1997
). SMC1A also plays a role in DNA repair by acting as an effector in the ATM/NBS1 checkpoint pathway (Yazdi, P.T. et al. 2002
). SMC1A has been implicated in the development of different cancer types. It has been reported to promote colorectal cancer metastasis by recruiting tumor-associated-fibroblasts (Zhou, P. et al. 2017
) and to stimulate growth and migration of prostate cancer (Pan, X.W. et al. 2016
). In human hepatocellular carcinoma, phosphorylated SMC1A is highly over-expressed and associated with patient survival rates (Zhang, Y. et al. 2018
