MSH2 RMab - mouse monoclonal G219-1129BSB 6926-BSB 6932
MSH2 is a mismatch repair gene commonly associated with Hereditary Non-Polyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC). This gene was identified as a locus frequently mutated in HNPCC. When cloned, it is a human homolog of the E. coli DNA mismatch repair gene mutS, consistent with the characteristic alterations in microsatellite sequences (RER+ phenotype) found in HNPCC. MSH2 is abnormally deficient in a high proportion of patients with microsatellite instability (MSI-H). This finding is associated with the autosomal dominant condition found in Hereditary Non-Polyposis Colon Cancer. This anti-MSH2 antibody (along with MLH1 antibody) is useful in screening patients and families for this rare condition. Colon cancers that are microsatellite unstable have a better prognosis than their microsatellite stable counterparts.
Available options include prediluted (3ml, 7 ml, 15ml), concentrate (0.1 ml, 0.5ml, 1ml) and 5+ control slides.
