|Target/Specificity||Small cell lung carcinoma cells|
|Application Note||ELISA : For coating, order Ab without BSA|
Flow Cytometry : 0.5-1ug/million cells
Immunofluorescence : 0.5-1.0 µg/ml
Western Blotting : 0.5-1.0 µg/ml
Immunoprecipitation : 0.5-1 µg/500ug protein lysate
Immunohistology (Frozen & Formalin-fixed) : 0.5-1.0 µg/ml for 30 minutes at RT
(Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM Citrate Buffer, pH 6.0, for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes).
|Format||0.5 ml at 40ug/ml; conjugated to AF488|
|Storage||Store at 2 to 8°C.Antibody is stable for 24 months.|
|Precautions||EpCAM Antibody [Clone VU-1D9] is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||GA733-2, M1S2, M4S1, MIC18, TACSTD1, TRO|
|Function||May act as a physical homophilic interaction molecule between intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) and intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs) at the mucosal epithelium for providing immunological barrier as a first line of defense against mucosal infection. Plays a role in embryonic stem cells proliferation and differentiation. Up-regulates the expression of FABP5, MYC and cyclins A and E.|
|Cellular Location||Lateral cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Cell junction, tight junction. Note=Colocalizes with CLDN7 at the lateral cell membrane and tight junction|
|Tissue Location||Highly and selectively expressed by undifferentiated rather than differentiated embryonic stem cells (ESC). Levels rapidly diminish as soon as ESC's differentiate (at protein levels). Expressed in almost all epithelial cell membranes but not on mesodermal or neural cell membranes. Found on the surface of adenocarcinoma.|

EGP40 is a 40-43kDa transmembrane epithelial glycoprotein, also identified as epithelial specific antigen (ESA), or epithelial cellular adhesion molecule (Ep-CAM). It is expressed on baso-lateral cell surface in most simple epithelia and a vast majority of carcinomas. This antibody has been used to distinguish adenocarcinoma from pleural mesothelioma and hepatocellular carcinoma. This antibody is also useful in distinguishing serous carcinomas of the ovary from mesothelioma.
