Mouse monoclonal antibody raised against native human MUC1.
Human breast cancer cell line ZR-75 cells.
Theoretical MW (kDa):
The dominant epitope of this monoclonal antibody is APDTR in the VNTR region. It reacts with the core peptide of the MUC1 protein, which is a member of a family of mucin glycoproteins that are characterized by high carbohydrate content, O-linked oligosaccharides, high molecular weight (>200 kDa) and an amino acid composition rich in serine, threonine, proline and glycine.
Protein A/G purification
Flow Cytometry (0.5-1 ug/106 cells in 0.1 mL) Immunofluorescence (1-2 ug/mL) Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) (0.25-0.5 ug/mL) The optimal working dilution should be determined by the end user.
In 10 mM PBS.
Store at -20 to -80°C. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
This gene is a member of the mucin family and encodes a membrane bound, glycosylated phosphoprotein. The protein is anchored to the apical surface of many epithelia by a transmembrane domain, with the degree of glycosylation varying with cell type. It also includes a 20 aa variable number tandem repeat (VNTR) domain, with the number of repeats varying from 20 to 120 in different individuals. The protein serves a protective function by binding to pathogens and also functions in a cell signaling capacity. Overexpression, aberrant intracellular localization, and changes in glycosylation of this protein have been associated with carcinomas. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different isoforms of this gene have been reported, but the full-length nature of only some has been determined. [provided by RefSeq
