General notesExtracts have been quality control tested by Western blot and the Electrophoretic Mobility Shift Assay (EMSA).
To ensure stability, we recommend aliquoting the extracts into single-use fractions and then storing them at -80ºC.
Storage instructionsShipped on dry ice. Upon delivery aliquot and store at -80ºC. Avoid freeze / thaw cycles.
BackgroundGlioblastoma is the highest dedifferentiated form of astrocytic brain tumours, and it is refractory to chemotherapy in most cases. U-87 MG (malignant glioma) cells are used as an vitro model of human glioblastoma cells to investigate the cytotoxic effect of chemotherapeutic drugs towards cancer cells.
The lysate is a good positive control for prostate apoptosis response-4 (Par-4) which is upregulated in prostate tumor cells undergoing apoptosis (several Abcam Par-4 abs). It is also a good positive control for Alpha-1-ACT, a serine protease inhibitor tightly associated with amyloid plaques in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and in normal aged human and monkey brain.
