LIN28A is a highly conserved RNA-binding protein and reprogramming factor that plays important roles in development, self-renewal of stem cells, glucose metabolism and tumorigenesis. Lin28A modulates not only miRNAs, particularly the let-7 family miRNAs, but also the translation of mRNAs that are important for cell growth and metabolism. LIN28A/B has been observed to be overexpressed in a wide range of solid tumors and hematological malignancies, and has emerged as a new therapeutic target candidate for cancer.Product Details

- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.025 - 1.0 µg per ml (1:500 - 1:20,000 dilution). For immunocytochemistry, the suggested use of this reagent is 1.0 - 5.0 µg per ml. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
HepG2 and HEL cells were selected for specificity testing because they express LIN28B mRNA but lack detectable LIN28A expression (source: Human Protein Atlas).
This clone is specific for Lin28A does not recognize Lin28B.
