Evaluation and validation of commercial antibodies for the detection of Shb.
Antibodies are among the most important tools for protein detection but, prior to their usage, proper validation of their appropriateness for given applications is required. The utility of an antibody depends on its sensitivity and specificity. We studied these two aspects in a panel of commercial antibodies against Shb, a platform protein involved in receptor tyrosine kinase signalling, but the function of which is still incompletely understood. Several of the antibodies showed shortcomings or were not acceptable for detection of the endogenous protein. The few that could detect Shb were doing so in either western blotting or immunoprecipitation experiments but a given antibody could not work in both applications. This article provides a resource for the available molecular tools that can be used in future research on Shb.
