|Description||Epithelial Cell Adhesion Molecule (EpCAM) is a 40 kDa cell surface antigen. This antigenhas been identified independently by a number of groups, and has been known by avariety of names. Several monoclonal antibodies have been raised against EpCAM, manyof which have been described as tumour specific molecules on carcinomas. EpCAM is aType 1 transmembrane glycoprotein. It is expressed on the basolateral membrane of cellsby the majority of epithelial tissues, with the exception of adult squamous epithelium andsome specific epithelial cell types including hepatocytes and gastric epithelial cells. EpCAM expression has been reported to be a possible marker of early malignancy, withexpression being increased in tumour cells, and de novo expression being seen indysplastic squamous epithelium.|

|Specificity||The Ep-CAM (HEA125) antibody recognizes the epithelial cell adhesion molecule Ep-CAM(also described as 17-1A antigen or EPG34). This antigen is widely expressed on cells ofepithelial origin and tumors derived therefrom. HEA125 represents an excellent marker todiscriminate epithelial from mesothelial structures. The antigen has been detected in allcarcinoma types tested (18 different origins). A subset of squamous cell carcinoma is negative. Reactivities on Cultured Cell Lines: All carcinoma cell lines tested so far, particularlystrong reaction with colon carcinoma cell lines (HT-29, WiDr, SW1116). Polypeptide reacting: Mr 40,000 human epithelium-specific cell surface glycoprotein(Ep-CAM). Species: Human. Others not tested.|

|Application Notes||Immunofluorescence Microscopy. Cell Sorting, Cytological Material. Immunohistochemistry on Frozen Sections and Paraffin-Embedded Sections. With Paraffin embedded sections, protease pretreatment is required prior to antibodyapplication. Working Dilution: Dilute at least 1/10 with PBS, pH 7.4 for Immunohistochemicalapplication. Incubation Time: 1 h at RT. Other applications not tested. Optimal dilutions are dependent on conditions and should be determined by the user.|
|Storage||Store the antibody undiluted at 2-8°C for one month or (in aliquots) at -20°C for longer. This product is photosensitive and should be protected from light. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Shelf life: one year from despatch.|
