Application Brief 1034: Survivin NanoPro Assay
Application Notes Summary
Survivin, an inhibitor of apoptosis protein (IAP) is a pro-survival molecule that is increased in nearly every human tumor studied. In head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, Survivin levels are significantly greater than in normal upper aerodigestive mucosa. High Survivin levels in these tissues correlate with a higher probability of nodal metastasis and loco-regional recurrence, but may also indicate higher radiosensitivity. Survivin includes multiple sites for post-translational modification, including 4-5 major phosphorylation sites.
