Always centrifuge tubes before opening. Do not mix by vortex or pipetting.
It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 µg/ml.
Dissolve the lyophilized protein in 1X PBS.
Apoptosis Inhibitor 4
Survivin is expressed in G2/M phase in a cycle regulated manner. At the beginning of mitosis, survivin associates with mitotic spindle microtubules, this is essential for survivin's anti-apoptosis function. Survivin may counteract a default induction of apoptosis in G2 / M phase. Survivin over-expression in cancer may overcome this apoptotic checkpoint.
Survivin DEx3 (lacking exon 3) and survivin-2B (retaining a part of intron 2 as a cryptic exon) are isoforms of survivin that behave differently to survivin.
Skipping of exon 3 in survivin-Ex3 results in a modification of the BIR domain, followed by an additional frame shift in exon 4. In consequence, the open reading frame of Survivin DEx3 ends in the 3' untranslated region of survivin at position 581 and generates a novel 63 amino acids-long COOH-terminal tail in survivin-Ex3 coded by 87 nucleotides of exon 4 and 103 nucleotides of the original 3' untranslated region. See Mahotka et al. 1999 for more details.
