Background

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) activated gene (NAG-1) is a member of the transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) superfamily. NAG-1 is also known as Macrophage Inhibitory Cytokine-1 (MIC-1), Growth Differentiation Factor 15 (GDF15), Placental Bone Morphogenetic Protein (PLAB), or Prostate Derived Factor (PDF). NAG-1 is expressed in human placenta, prostate and colon. It possesses antitumorigenic and proapoptotic activities. NAG-1 expression is dramatically increased in inflammation, injury and malignancy. Increase of NAG-1 expression is a feature of many cancers including breast, colon, pancreas and prostate. In a number of studies, NAG-1 expression was increased by a number of NSAIDs. This increase in expression may correlate with the chemopreventive effect NSAIDs seem to have with certain cancers. NAG-1 expression is also induced by PPAR gamma ligands and by several dietary compounds such as conjugated linoleic acids (CLAs), naturally occurring fatty acids in ruminant food products, indoles, epicatechin gallate, and genistein. Induced expression of NAG-1 results in stimulation of apoptosis and inhibition of cell growth. Inhibition of NAG-1 induced expression by small interference RNA (siRNA) results in repression of induced apoptosis. NAG-1 expression is regulated by a numbers of transcription factors such as ERG-1 and Sp1. EGR-1 may be necessary for NSAID-induced NAG-1 expression. The study of expression of NAG-1 proteins, including variants, is important to define their potential role as serum biomarkers for cancer diagnosis, treatment monitoring, epidemiology study, and nutrition surveys.

Recombinant Protein
This Protein-A purified antibody was prepared by repeated immunizations with an MBP-tagged recombinant protein produced in E.coli corresponding to full-length mouse NAG-1 protein.  Cross reactivity to MBP was removed via cross-adsorption chromatography.
This product was Protein-A purified and MBP-cross-adsorbed from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity chromatography.  This antibody reacts with endogenous NAG-1 protein from mouse and human tissues.  A BLAST analysis suggests reactivity with NAG-1 from mouse and rat based on 100% and 97% homology, respectively, and with chinese hamster based on an 92% homology with the immunizing sequence. Cross-reactivity with NAG-1 from other sources has not been determined.

Application Details

ELISA, WB
This Protein-A purified, MBP-cross-adsorbed NAG-1 antibody has been tested in ELISA and western blotting of mouse and human NAG-1 protein.  For detection of NAG-1 in mouse serum, a sandwich ELISA is suggested using this antibody in combination with anti-NAG-1/GDF15 (N-terminal) specific antibodies (see Related products).  Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user.  Expect bands in Western blots of approximately 14 and 28 kDa in size corresponding to NAG-1 monomer and dimer, respectively, using the appropriate cell lysate or extract.
