Title: Hypoxic Detection w/ Anti-Heat Shock Proteins
Post by: schao on October 06, 2004, 04:20:54 PM
Hi,

I'm interested in marking hypoxic areas in murine tissue and tumor samples for use in either IHC or fluorescence microscopy. I've read about methods using pimonidazole adducts. However, my PI is more interested in antibodies that track hsp's. Since there are a myriad of hsp's, I'm not really sure where to begin. Does anyone have any advice?

HIF-1 alpha (Hypoxia Induced Factor) is a good marker for Hypoxic tumors. Additional along the hypoxia pathway, there are some other markers such as CA-IX and Heme-Oxygenase-1 (HO-1).

There are many more hypoxia markers you can choose from depending on your specific research interest.
