Monoclonal Antibody: Palladin Isoform 4

Technology #09-0101

Palladin is an actin-associated protein that plays an essential role in normal cell motility. Palladin levels in breast cancer patients are higher in malignant tissues than that in normal breast samples. In addition, highly invasive breast cancer cell lines express significantly higher levels of palladin than non-invasive cell types. A mutation in the human palladin gene has been implicated in an unusual and highly penetrant form of familial pancreatic cancer.
