Description

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.

Application Note

Anti-NAG1 affinity purified antibody is tested for use in ELISA and suitable for western blotting assays.  This reagent is particularly useful to differentiate polymorphic forms of NAG-1 protein present in human serum samples.  This antibody is useful in dual antibody immunometric assays (EIA). Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user.

Purity/Specificity

This product was affinity purified from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity chromatography.  This antibody specifically reacts with an H variant sequence of human NAG-1 protein from human tissues.  A BLAST analysis was used to suggest partial reactivity with NAG-1 from chimpanzee and macaque based on a 92% homology.  Cross-reactivity with NAG-1 from other sources has not been determined.
