AIM: To prepare and characterize antibody against Memo protein and to detect the tissue distribution of Memo in mice. METHODS: Fusion protein GST-Memo was expressed and purified, and polyclonal antibody against Memo was prepared by immunizing mice. A FLAG-tagged eukaryotic expression vector pcDNA3-FLAG-Memo was constructed. The specificity of the antibody was detected by Western blot. RESULTS: An eukaryotic expression vector pcDNA3-FLAG-Memo was obtained. The polyclonal antibody was found to be specific to Memo. Memo protein was widely expressed in mouse tissues using the obtained antibody in Western blot. CONCLUSION: Antibody specific to Memo has been successfully obtained, which provides useful tool for investigation into Memo-associated mechanisms of tumor metastasis and invasiveness.
