MA5-11240 targets Mucin 2 in IHC (P) applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-11240 immunogen is recombinant protein encoding 5 tandem repeats of the human MUC2 apomucin.
Secreted epithelial mucins are large macromolecules which exhibit extreme polydispersity. Mucin 2 is the major intestinal mucin. O-glycans are attached to MUC2 in a potentially diverse arrangement, which is crucial for their interaction with endogeneous and exogeneous lectins.
