Expression studies on transketolase-like-1 show that the protein is found in aggressive tumors. The detection of TKTL1 is furthermore correlated with poor patient prognosis and metastasis. Transketolase dependent reactions regulate the non-oxidative part of the pentose-phosphate-pathway (PPP) in glucose metabolism. This pathway generates NADPH and pentose phosphates. The latter are important for nucleic acid metabolism. Beside the ubiquitous transketolase (TKT) other transketolase-like proteins exist. Transketolase-like 1 (TKTL1) is a protein with a 38 amino acid deletion when compared to TKT. TKTL1 expression has been shown in tumors of different entities. Inhibition of TKTL1 expression by RNA interference results in reduced growth of tumor cells, while overexpression of TKTL1 promotes cell proliferation. Recent publications suggest an important role of TKTL1 in the metabolism of tumor cells. In colorectal tumors nuclear as well as cytoplasmic localization has been described.
Reactivity on cultured cell lines: THP-1.
Q & A's
0 of 0 reviews
The concentration of purified antibodies is mentioned on the datasheet.
For prediluted antibodies the concentration may vary from lot to lot. The concentration of these antibodies is not mentioned on the datasheet and can be requested at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The supernatant format contains FCS proteins from cell culture medium supplemented with FCS.
The serum antibodies contain other proteins present in serum.
- Supernatant and supernatant concentrate: This format contains hybridoma cell culture supernatant. The antibody is not purified and the antibody concentration is not determined. The antibody concentration may vary from lot to lot. Therefore we recommend to titrate the optimal concentration for the application used for each new lot.
- Lyophilized, purified: This format contains purified antibody in lyophilized form. The reconstitution of this antibody is described in the datasheet. The buffer composition after reconstitution is also mentioned on the datasheet.
- Liquid, purified: This format contains purified antibody in liquid format. The concentration is mentioned on the datasheet.
- Prediluted, purified: This format contains purified antibody in liquid format. Most antibodies in this format are diluted to be ready-to-use for IHC with standard tissue. But some antibodies of this format need further dilution for IHC. This is mentioned on the datasheet.
Most of our liquid antibodies and reconstituted lyophilized antibodies may be stored for short term storage (up to 3 month) at 2-8°C. For long term storage we recommend to store the antibody at -20°C in aliquots. Please avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
Most of our conjugated antibodies should be stored at 2-8°C.
The individual storage conditions are mentioned on the datasheet.
