|Immunogen||The Human Ep-CAM is a recombinant protein produced in E. coli.|
|Description||The Ep-CAM antigen (Epithelial Cell Adhesion Molecule), also termed as MK-1, GA733-2,KSA, 17-1A or EGP40, is a 40 kDa type-I transmembrane glycoprotein with properties ofCa2+ -independent homotypic intracellular adhesion molecule. The full leghth of themolecule is 314 amino acids. Structurally, Ep-CAM is not related to any of the majorfamilies of adhesion molecules. The Ep-CAM antigen is overexpessed on the majority oftumor cells of most human epithelia of variety of tumor tissues such as stomach, colon,pancreas, gall bladder, bile duct, mammary gland, breast and lung carcinoma. Ep-CAM hasbeen suggested to be involved in the differentiation and growth of epithelial cells undernormal physiological conditions through its homotypic cell-cell adhesion activity. As it isoverexpressed on most carcinomas, Ep-CAM antigen has been used as a target fordiagnosis and therapy of cancer.|
