|Immunogen||BALB/C mice were immunized with human breast carcinoma cell line, MCF-7.|
|Specificity||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||Staining Protocol: We suggest an incubation period of 30 minutes at room temperature. However, depending upon the fixation conditions and the staining system employed, optimal incubation should be determined by the user. Formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections require high temperature antigen unmasking with 10 mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 prior to immunostaining. Positive Control: Kidney. Cellular localization: Cell membrane|
|Concentration||1 to 4 ug/ml|
|Buffer||This antibody has been pretitered and quality controlled to work on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded as well as acetone fixed cryostat tissue sections. No further titration is required.|
|Storage||Store the antibody at 2-8o c. Do not use it beyond the expiration date stated on the label.|
|Restrictions||For Research Use. CE-certified for In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Use in the European Union|
