Proteomic Identification of a Monoclonal Antibody Recognizing Caveolin-1 in Hepatocellular Carcinoma with Metastatic Potential
Abstract:A monoclonal antibody, McAb9E (IgG3), was generated against a metastatic HCC cell line, MHCC-1. The antigen was characterized as human Caveolin-1 (Cav-1, 21kDa), with pI of 5.65. The Cav-1 antigen was found significantly over expressed in metastatic HCC cell lines as well as in tumor specimens. The Cav-1 specific McAb may be a useful molecular agent for metastatic HCC.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
