Histone H3, phosphorylated (pSer10) (Nuclear Marker) [PHH3/471R]



Phosphohistone H3 (PHH3) is a marker specific for cells undergoing mitosis. Serine 10 of Histone H3 is phosphorylated in association with mitotic chromatin condensation in late G2 and M phase of the cell cycle and thus, PHH3 can distinguish mitosis from apoptotic nuclei. The range of percentage PHH3 positive tumor nuclei was from 0.0 to 6.6% (median value 0.8%). Increased expression of PHH3 was significantly associated with tumor thickness (p = 0.031), presence of tumor ulceration (p =0.041) and tumor necrosis (p =0.027), but not with Clark's level of invasion. High levels of PHH3 was associated with increased mitotic count (p = 0.003) and high Ki-67 expression (p = 0.002). For central nervous system tumors, melanoma, soft tissue tumors, GIST, etc., PHH3 mAb is helpful for tumor pathological classification and prognosis.

Known Applications & Suggested Dilutions

  • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin-fixed) (1-2ug/ml for 30 minutes at RT),(Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires heating tissue sections in 10mM Tris with 1mM EDTA, pH 9.0, for 45 min at 95 &degC followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes),Optimal dilution for a specific application should be determined.
