The Snail family of developmental regulatory proteins is a group of widely conserved zinc-finger proteins that regulate transcription and include the mammalian proteins SLUG, SNAI 1, the human homolog of Drosophila SNAIL, and Smuc. SNAI 1 and SLUG are expressed in placenta and adult heart, liver, and skeletal muscle. SNAI 1, and the corresponding mouse homolog Sna, each contain three classic zinc fingers and one atypical zinc finger, while SLUG contains five zinc finger regions and a transcriptional repression domain at the amino terminus, which enables SLUG to act as a negative regulator of gene expression. SLUG is implicated in the generation and migration of neural crest cells in human embryos and also contributes to limb bud development. In addition, SLUG also constitutes a cellular anti-apoptotic transcription factor that effectively prevents apoptosis in murine pro-B cells deprived of IL-3.

Description: The monoclonal antibody 20C8 recognizes human Snail1, a 29kDa zinc finger transcription factor. Snail1 and Slug both belong to a family of transcription factors that are responsible for inducing epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) during normal organ development and tumor progression. Snail1 expression is localized to both the cytoplasm and nucleus and functions as a transcriptional repressor of E-cadherin, claudins, occludin, and desmoplakin. During embryonic development, Snail1 is localized to the mesoderm, while in the adult, expression is inducible and is usually limited to activated fibroblasts and some mesenchymal cells. Overexpression of Snail1 has been found in carcinomas and fibrosarcomas and may be used as an early marker for EMT.Applications Reported: This 20C8 antibody has been reported for use in immunohistochemical staining of formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (IHC-P) tissue, ELISA, immunoprecipitation, western blotting, immunocytochemistry, and intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This 20C8 antibody has been tested by immunocytochemistry on fixed and permeabilized MCF7 cells and by immunohistochemistry on formalin-fixed paraffin embedded human infiltrating ductal carcinoma. This antibody can be used at less than or equal to 20 ug/mL. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 519 nm; Laser: Blue Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
