Alternative Name CD326 / EPCAM / TACSTD1
Background Epithelial antigen is cell surface glycoprotein and is broadly distributed in epithelial cells and displays a highly conserved expression in carcinomas. Epithelial antigen has been know to play an important role as tumor-cell marker in lymph nodes from patients with esophageal carcinoma. Epithelial antigen can be used to distinguish between basal cell and basosquamous carcinomas and squamous cell carcinoma of the skin.

Application Notes Immunohistochemistry on Formalin-Fixed Paraffin Embedded Sections: Use at 1/50-1/150dilution in an ABC method (30 minutes at RT). Formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections require high temperature antigenunmasking with 10 mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 prior to immunostaining. Recommended Positive Control: Kidney. Other applications not tested. Optimal dilutions are dependent on conditions and should be determined by the user.
