Rabbit anti Human PCNA antibody
recognizes Human Proliferating Cell Nuclear Antigen (PCNA), also known as cyclin. PCNA is a 261 amino acid ~36 kDa nuclear protein vital for cellular DNA synthesis, playing a key role in the DNA damage response where it acts as a loading platform to recruit additional damage repair proteins to lesions following DNA damage and promote repair (Burkovics et al. 2009
PCNA is a useful marker for DNA synthesis and is highly conserved among most species. Rabbit anti human PCNA antibody is expected to have wide species cross reactivity. PCNA expression in human dermis is negatively correlated to age as demonstrated by immunohustochemistry on paraffin sections using rabbit anti human PCNA antibody (Gunin et al. 2014
