Antibodies That Specifically Recognize S100A15, A Protein Involved in Epidermal Differentiation and Inflammation
Posted Apr 30 2006 5:00pm
Description of Invention: This technology describes rabbit polyclonal antibodies that recognize the human and mouse S100A15 proteins. S100A15 is involved in epidermal differentiation and inflammation, and is dysregulated in skin tumors and inflammatory psoriasis.
Diagnostic tool for evaluation of agents that alter skin pathology
Research tool to probe the role of S100A15 during epidermal maturation, skin carcinogenesis, and inflammation
Diagnostic tool for the clinical evaluation of skin tumors and inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis
Patent Status: Research Tool -- patent protection is not being pursued for this technology
