Detection of Human PAUF/ZG16B by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human placenta tissue and human prostate tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human PAUF/ZG16B Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7777) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for PAUF/ZG16B at approximately 22 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
PAUF/ZG16B in Human Pancreas Cancer Tissue. PAUF/ZG16B was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human pancreas cancer tissue using Mouse Anti-Human PAUF/ZG16B Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7777) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm and plasma membranes of cancer cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

PAUF (pancreatic adenocarcinoma upregulated factor), gene name ZG16B (zymogen granule protein 16B), is a 156 amino acid, approximately 20-25 kDa secreted protein that is a member of the jacalin-binding lectin family. PAUF expression is thought to be restricted to primates, but the related ZG16P, which shares approximately 25% amino acid sequence identity, is more widely expressed. Human PAUF is overexpressed in pancreatic adenocarcinoma, binds Toll-like receptors TLR2 and TLR4, and inhibits CXCR4-dependent, TLR2-mediated NF-kB activation. It facilitates tumor growth, adhesiveness, and production of pro-tumorigenic cytokines.
