Identification and Semi -Quantification of ER/PR Proteins Expression

2016-01-14 12:53:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is the identification and quantification of proteins expression level in breast cancer tissues.

The imaging system is intended for diagnostic use as an aid to the pathologist in the detection, counting and classifying ER/PR IHC stained samples.

Description

The anti ER/PR Kit is a semi-quantitative immunohistochemical (IHC) assay to identify the progesterone (PR) and estrogen (ER) expressions in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human breast cancer tissue specimens. Results from the ER/PR test is indicated as an aid in the assessment of the hormones status of breast cancer patients. While the ER/PR kit provides the antibodies that offer direct visualization and semi-quantification of the protein expression through a brightfield microscope, the GenASIs GoPath system is designed to complement the routine workflow of the pathologist in the review of immunohistochemically stained histologic slides.

Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.

The phosphoprotein encoded by the BRCA1 gene (GENE, BRCA1). In normal cells the BRCA1 protein is localized in the nucleus, whereas in the majority of breast cancer cell lines and in malignant pleural effusions from breast cancer patients, it is localized mainly in the cytoplasm.
