Rabbit anti p63 antibody recognizes an epitope within the C-terminal (CT) region of tumour protein p63, otherwise known as tumour protein p73-like (p73L), a widely expressed nuclear protein and homologue of tumour suppressor p53, which acts as a sequence-specific DNA binding transcriptional activator/repressor.
p63, vital for the development of the prostate and selectively expressed by normal prostate basal cells, has been shown to be a promising complementary basal cell specific marker to High Molecular Weight-Cytokeratin (HMW-CK), for the differential diagnosis of benign prostatic lesions and prostatic carcinoma.
Rabbit anti p63 antibody is reported as suitable for use in immunocytochemistry.

Applications of p63 antibody
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 appropriate negative/positive controls.
- Western Blotting
- Rabbit anti Human p63 antibody detects a band of approximately 75kDa in mouse lung and human tumour cell line K562 (protein degredation is as expected).
