Clone B72-3
Isotype IgG1
Specificity This antibody clone B72.3 recognizes a High Molecular Weight Glycoprotein called TAG-72 that is present in Human adenocarcinomas and in lesser amounts, non-neoplastic tissues. It has also been found to be useful to distinguish between mesothelioma and adenocarcinoma, however, false positive reactions can occur so results must be interpreted with the utmost caution.
Purification Ascites
Alternative Name TAG72
Background The majority of human adenocarcinomas including colorectal, pancreatic, gastric, ovarian, endometrial, mammary, and non-small cell lung cancer display some cell populations that are positive for TAG72. About 60% of carcinoma patients express TAG72 in their sera. TAG72 is reportedly useful in distinguishing pulmonary adenocarcinomas from pleural mesotheliomas.
Alternate names: CA 72-4, CA72-4, TAG-72, sialy-Tn
