The Role of TAB3 Protein in Tumorigenesis


OBJECTIVES:

- To identify TAB3 transcript/protein as a molecular marker of cancer, specifically
testicular, skin, small intestine, and pancreatic cancer.

- To characterize TAB3 and its signaling networks that are involved in tumorigenesis.

OUTLINE: Tumor tissue samples from paraffin-embedded tissue blocks are analyzed for TAB3
transcript and protein expression using in situ hybridization and immunostaining with TAB3
cRNA probe and antibody. Antibodies against the proteins involved in the NFkB signaling
pathway (e.g., p65, TAK1, MyD88, and Akt) are used in the immunostaining assays.
