Mouse Double Minute 2 Homolog (MDM2), also known as HDM2 in humans, is crucial in negative regulation of the p53 tumour suppressor. Negative regulation is mediated through both the ubiquitination of p53/TP53, as well as inhibition of p53 transcriptional activation. Reports have indicated an overexpression of MDM2 to be associated with a number of different human tumour types, including soft tissue sarcomas, osteosarcomas, and breast tumours. When co-overexpressed with the CDK4 protein, MDM2 can also aid in the detection of well-differentiated liposarcomas and de-differentiated liposarcoma.

Antibody Principle

Visualization of the antigen present in tissue sections is accomplished in a multi-step immunohistochemical staining process, in conjunction with a horseradish peroxidase (HRP) or alkaline phosphatase (AP) linked detection system. The process involves the addition of the stated antibody (primary antibody) to a tissue slide, followed by a secondary antibody (linked to an enzyme complex) which specifically binds to the primary antibody. A chromogenic substrate is then added which reacts with the enzyme complex, resulting in a colorimetric reaction at the site of the antigen. Results are interpreted using a light microscope
