Immunogen HT-29 colon carcinoma cell line
Clone HEA125
Isotype IgG1
Specificity Clone HEA125 recognizes Ep-CAM (polypeptide reacting: Mr 40,000 epithelium-specific cell surface glycoprotein). HEA125 represents an excellent marker to discriminate epithelial from mesothelial structures. The antigen has been detected in all carcinoma types tested (18 different origins). A subset of squamous cell carcinoma is negative. Tested Reactivities on Cultured Cell Lines: All carcinoma cell lines tested so far, particularly strong reaction with colon carcinoma cell lines (HT-29, WiDr, SW1116). Species Reactivity: Tested: Human.
Purification Affinity Chromatography on Protein A
Alternative Name CD326 / EPCAM / TACSTD1
Background The epithelial cell adhesion molecule Ep-CAM (also described as 17-1A antigen or EPG34) is widely expressed on cells of epithelial origin and tumors derived therefrom.
Alternate names: Adenocarcinoma-associated antigen, EGP314, Ep-CAM, Epithelial cell adhesion molecule, Epithelial glycoprotein 314, GA733-2, KS 1/4 antigen, KSA, M1S2, M4S1, MIC18, Major gastrointestinal tumor-associated protein GA733-2, TROP1, Trop-1, Tumor-associated calcium signal transducer 1
Gene ID 4072
NCBI Accession NP_002345.2
UniProt P16422
Research Area Cancer
Application Notes Immunoblotting. Cell sorting. Cytological material. Immunofluorescence microscopy. Immunohistochemistry on frozen and paraffin-embedded tissue. With paraffin embeddedsections, protease pre-treatment is required prior to antibody application. Dilute at least 1: 10 with PBS, pH 7.4, for immunohistochemical application. Incubationtime: 1 h at RT, extended with paraffin. Other applications not tested. Optimal dilutions are dependent on conditions and should be determined by the user.
