CC10 Antibody Staining Protocol for Immunohistochemistry


Description: Clara cell 10 (CC10) protein, a homologue of rabbit uteroglobin, is a phospholipase A2 inhibitor. CC10 is regulated by AP-1, octamer , and hepat ocyte nuclear factor-3 (HNF-3) family transcription factors. CC10 expression changes in relation to the ovarian menstrual cycle, and expression in human endometrium may be stimulated by progesterone, suggesting that CC10 may regulate eicosanoid levels in the human uterus. CC10 is expressed in the lung in nonciliated airway epithelial cells and in urogenital secret ions. CC10 is involved in modulating inflammation in airway passages and may play a role in asthma. Overexpression of CC10 in the non-small cell lung cancer cell line A549 was shown to result in the near absence of MMP-2 and MMP-9 matrix etalloproteinases and a reduction in invasiveness, indicating that loss of CC10 may contribute to carcinogenesis.
