These antibodies are excellent tools for studying the role of integrin 3 and CD26 in the complex biology of pancreatic cancer, their prognostic and predictive values and the therapeutic potential of their humanised and/or conjugated versions in patients whose tumours overexpress integrin 3 or CD26. Immunoprecipitation was performed with novel mAbs (A) KU44.22B and (B) KU44.13A (5?g) using sheep anti-mouse dynabeads. Protein bands around ~140 KDa and ~ 260KDa were immunoprecipitated with mAb KU44.22B (A; left panel) and ~110 KDa by mAb KU44.13A (B; left panel) respectively and stained with SimplyBlue? SafeStain. The ~50/25 KDa bands represent heavy and light chains of the anti-mouse antibody. *(B) left panel Mouse monoclonal to GFI1 corresponds to a cropped gel; vertically sliced images of juxtaposed Niperotidine lanes that were non-adjacent in the gel have a clear separation delineating the boundary between the gels. Integrin 3 and CD26 antigen were immunoprecipitated with mAbs (A) KU44.22B and (B) KU44.13A (5?g) respectively, and probed with the same antibody (30?g/ml). Target antigens were not immunodetected with either of the mAbs. Integrin 3 and CD26 antigen were immunoprecipitated with mAbs (A) KU44.22B and (B) KU44.13A respectively (5?g) or commercial Niperotidine anti-integrin 3 and anti-CD26 antibodies (2?g) and immunodetected with commercial mAbs sc-374242 and ab89398 as described in Methods. Immunodetection of target antigens immunoprecipitated by novel mAbs and probed with commercial mAbs confirmed the target identity. MW: molecular weight marker.

At 300?nM, mAb KU44.22B inhibited the growth of Capan-2 human pancreatic cancer cells by 94% with an IC50 value of 4.5?nM (Fig.?3) whereas it inhibited the growth of CFPAC-1 cells by 20% (data not shown). Interestingly, treatment with this mAb did not have any effect on the growth of the other cell lines tested including the ovarian cancer cell lines SKOV-3 and CaOV-3, and the glioblastoma cell line A172, despite having higher levels of integrin 3 Niperotidine cell surface expression than Capan-2 cells (data not shown). On the other hand, treatment with mAb KU44.22B increased migration of BxPC-3 and to a lesser extent CFPAC-1 cancer cells (Fig.?4) and induced-receptor downregulation and internalisation (Fig.?5). In contrast, treatment with mAb KU44.13A did not have any effect on the growth or migration of any of the cell lines tested and did not induce receptor downregulation (data not shown, and Fig.?5).

Live-Cell Imaging instrument (Essen Niperotidine Bioscience, UK) as described in Methods. Treatment with mAb KU44.22B (300?nM) significatively increases the migration of BxPC-3 and CFPAC-1 cells.
