Kidney Cancer

Proteintech offers a wide range of markers and related antibodies for kidney cancer.

There are different types of kidney cancer. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common. RCC shows resistance to radiation or chemotherapy, thus surgery is the most promising treatment method. Renal cell carcinoma accounts for 2-3% of all cancers, with the highest incidence occurring in Western countries.

APOL1: It's new role in kidney disease
Alterations in ApolipoproteinL (ApoL1) functions lead to different lipid disorders. Several current studies show that the ApoL1 protein is involved in different kidney diseases.¹, ², ³, ⁴

SIX2: Investigating kidney development

It has previously been shown that SIX2 is expressed in developing mesenchymal tissue including renal differentiation. SIX2 also significantly marks renal progenitor cells, and is therefore a powerfool tool to distinguish between the ureteric bud (UB) and the nephrogenic “cap” mesenchyme (CM).⁵

CA9: A marker for diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment
Carbonic anhydrase 9 (CA9) is a transmembrane member of the carbonic anhydrase family. CA9 is a marker specific for renal cell carcinoma. It has been shown that CA9 is not expressed in healthy renal tissue but is expressed in most clear cell renal cell carcinomas.⁶, ⁷
