Antibody MAB4130 recognizes a 36 kDa protein identified as Thymidylate Synthase [TS], which is a target for the fluoropyrimidine group of antineoplastic drugs used to treat solid tumors. Expression of TS is associated with response to 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) in human breast, colorectal, gastric, head and neck carcinomas.
