Monoclonal Anti-PCNA antibody has been used in immunocytochemistry and western blotting.
Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) controls the production of the leading and lagging strands, that are required for the duplication of DNA. It acts as a cell cycle regulatory protein. This protein regulates apoptosis. PCNA is also involved in non-replicative DNA synthesis events.

Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) is a ring-shaped homotrimer protein that is located at the center of the faithful duplication of eukaryotic genomes. Since it encircles the DNA, PCNA is also known as a sliding clamp. This gene is mapped to human chromosome 20p12.3.
The protein encoded by this gene is found in the nucleus and is a cofactor of DNA polymerase delta. The encoded protein acts as a homotrimer and helps increase the processivity of leading strand synthesis during DNA replication. In response to DNA damage, this protein is ubiquitinated and is involved in the RAD6-dependent DNA repair pathway. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. Pseudogenes of this gene have been described on chromosome 4 and on the X chromosome. (provided by RefSeq)
