Rabbit anti Human PDCD4 antibody recognizes programmed cell death 4 (PDCD4), a novel tumor suppressor.

PDCD4 interacts with the RNA helicase eIF4A and the scaffolding protein eIF4G, two components of the translation initiation complex, and thus inhibits protein synthesis (Yang et al. 2003). PDCD4 has also been shown to inhibit transcription factor activator protein-1 (AP-1), which regulates several events required for cell invasion, including expression of matrix metalloproteinases and cell motility (Wang et al. 2013).

PDCD4 localizes to the nucleus in proliferating cells, and its expression is modulated by cytokines in natural killer and T-cells. PDCD4 expression is down regulated with tumor progression in carcinomas of the lung, colon, prostate and breast.

Rabbit anti Human PDCD4 antibody detects programmed cell death 4 as a single band of 52 kDa in a wide range of human cell line lysates. Cross reactivity with rodent cell lines is also observed.
