Abstract

KGFR is involved in the pathogenesis of several human cancers. In this study, we generated and characterized a monoclonal antibody specific to KGFR (SC-101 mAb) and evaluated its potential use in basic research and as a diagnostic and prognostic tool. The specificity and biological activity of the SC-101 mAb were evaluated by Western blotting, immunofluorescence, and immunoprecipitation analyses on various cell lines. KGFR expression in breast, pancreatic, and thyroid carcinoma was assessed by immunohistochemistry (IHC) with SC-101 mAb. KGFR expression levels revealed by SC-101 mAb resulted to increase proportionally with tumor grade in breast and pancreatic cancer. In addition, SC-101 mAb was able to detect KGFR down-modulation in thyroid cancer. SC-101 mAb might represent a useful tool for basic research applications, and it could also contribute to improve the accuracy of diagnosis and prognosis of epithelial tumors. © 2014 The Author(s).
