IHC Suggested Protocol
1. Tissues are fixed with 10% neutral buffered formalin, cut to ~4um, and placed on a positively charged glass slide.
2. The prepared slide is baked for at least 30 minutes and at most 24 hours at 55-65 degree C.
3. Pretreatment - Perform heat-induced epitope retrieval (HIER) at pH 6 for 10 to 30 minutes.
4. Block – Block with peroxidase solution for 5 minutes at RT.
5. Primary Ab – Dilute antibodies 1:100 – 1:200 and incubate for 10 - 30 minutes at RT.
6. Secondary Ab - Incubate for 20 - 30 minutes at RT.
7. Substrate - Incubate DAB or Fast Red for 5 - 10 minutes at RT.
8. Counterstain - Counterstain with hematoxylin for 30 seconds to 5 minutes, rinse with distilled water and blueing solution for 30 seconds.
9. Dehydrate and apply coverslip.
(Each researcher should optimize the protocol for their experimental model system.)
Preparation and Storage
Store at 2-8 degree C. Do not freeze.
Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-PAX-8 antibody vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

anti-PAX-8 antibody
PAX-8 is a transcription factor in the paired box (PAX) family, whose mainly functions as important regulators in early development, especially in thyroid follicular cells and thyroid specific genes. Mutations in PAX-8 could lead to thyroid follicular carcinoams, atypical thyroid adenomas, and thyroid dysgenesis. Studies have associated PAX-8 expression with renal carcinoma, nephroblastoma, and seminoma, and have indicated PAX-8 as a useful marker for renal epithelial tumors, ovarian cancer, and for differential diagnoses in lung and neck tumors.

NCBI Summary for PAX-8
This gene encodes a member of the paired box (PAX) family of transcription factors. Members of this gene family typically encode proteins that contain a paired box domain, an octapeptide, and a paired-type homeodomain. This nuclear protein is involved in thyroid follicular cell development and expression of thyroid-specific genes. Mutations in this gene have been associated with thyroid dysgenesis, thyroid follicular carcinomas and atypical follicular thyroid adenomas. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]
