MA1-06502 detects Ep-CAM in human samples.
MA1-06502 has sucessfully been used in Western blotting, immunocytochemistry and immunohistochemistry. By Western blotting, it detects a ~40 kDa protein representing Ep-CAM. Western blot should be performed under non-reducing conditions.
The MA1-06502 immunogen is native Ep-CAM from lung tissue. This antibody reacts with the first EGF repeat in the extracellular domein of Ep-CAM. The epitope is sensitive for reducing agents.
Store at 4°C, or in small aliquots at -20°C.
Ep-CAM is a ~40 kD glycoprotein, which functions as an epithelial cell adhesion molecule. Ep-CAM mediates Ca2+-independent homotypic interactions. Formation of Ep-CAM-mediated adhesions has a negative regulatory effect on adhesions mediated by classic cadherins, which may have strong effects on the differentiation and growth of epithelial cells. Ep-CAM overexpression was suggested to be associated with enhanced epithelial proliferation. Ep-CAM is expressed in the majority of human carcinomas and is a marker for tumors of epithelial lineage.
