FunctionMay be involved in inflammatory and metaplastic responses of the gastrointestinal epithelium.
Tissue specificityHighly expressed in the gastrointestinal tract including the duodenum, jejunum, ileum, ileocecum, appendix, descending colon, pancreas and small intestine. Weakly expressed in normal colon and stomach. Strongly expressed in most colorectal tumors than in normal colon. Preferentially expressed in mucinous tumors and in some cases neuro-endocrine tumors. Expressed in mucus-secreting cells and enterocyte-like cells. In small intestine expressed at the basal perinuclear zone of goblet cells.
IHC image of REG4 staining in Human colon Adenocarcinoma formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond™ system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab89917, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.
For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
