Characteristics 1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
Purification The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
Alternative Name MCAM (MCAM Antibody Abstract)
Background Tumor metastasis is determined by the metastatic capacity of subpopulations of tumor cells. The presence of cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) is a property of tumor cells that is essential for metastasis. MCAM (MUC18 or Mel-CAM) was identified on melanoma cells and is one of several CAMs that belong to the immunoglobulin superfamily. MCAM is an integral membrane glycoprotein that consists of five immunoglobulin-like domains, a transmembrane region, and a short cytoplasmic domain. The presence of several protein kinase recognition motifs in the cytoplasmic domain suggest a role for MCAM in signal transduction. MCAM is capable of both homotypic and heterotypic adhesion between cells, but its heterotypic ligand remains to be identified. It is sparsely expressed on benign melanocytic nevi and thin primary melanomas. However, MCAM expression increases with tumor thickness. It is expressed on 70-80% of advanced primary and metastatic tumors. Additionally, S-Endo-1 antigen (CD146), present on human endothelial cells, is identical to MCAM. Thus, MCAM may play an important role in the development of metastatic tumors and possibly represents a prime target for therapeutic treatment. This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis.
