Application Notes
This Survivin (60.11) antibody is useful for Flow Cytometry, Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence and Immunoprecipitation. Immunohistochemistry-Paraffin and Western Blot were reported in scientific literature. This antibody weakly detects Survivin in Western blot; for this application we suggest using NB500-235 instead. Use in Immunohistochemistry-Frozen reported in scientific literature (PMID 22841823) The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.

Survivin (BIRC5 or IAP4) is the smallest member of inhibitors of apoptosis proteins (X-linked IAP/XIAP, c-IAP1, c-IAP2, IAP-like protein-2/ ILP2, melanoma IAP/ ML-IAP, Livin, NAIP, and survivin) and besides its anti-apoptotic functions; survivin also regulates processes such as cell cycle, migration, metastasis etc. Highly critical in fetal development, survivin is generally no longer present in adult tissues; however, its re-expression occurs in cancers wherein it drives proliferation, metastasis, poor prognosis, and decreased patient survival. Survivin contains only one copy of a modified baculovirus IAP repeat (BIR, a domain required for caspases inactivation) which is used for homodimerization and for its interaction with other chromosome passenger proteins. Phosphorylation/mutation of Thr-48 in the BIR domain affects survivin's dual ability to inhibit apoptosis and regulate cell division. Under apoptotic stimuli involving mitochondria, survivin forms a complex with XIAP, thus increasing the stability of XIAP and its inhibitory activity against caspases. The survivin binding to mitochondrial Smac/DIABLO leads to a delayed Smac/DIABLO release in the cytoplasm resulting in prolonged cell survival. Survivin-HBXIP complex can bind to pro-caspase-9 for exerting prevention of mitochondrial apoptosis activation. For facilitating correct cell division, survivin recognize/complex with phospho-histone-H3 and associates with the chromosome passenger proteins (Aurora B, INCENP, and borealin) and this new complex is recruited to the mitotic centromers where it assists/ensure proper chromosomal segregation. Moreover, at the centrosomes of dividing cells, survivin binds to Cdk1 which is critical for cells to enter mitosis.
