Mouse monoclonal antibody raised against Rat Tumors, epithelial origin.
Native purified from rat colon adenocarcinoma cells (CC531).
MG1 is a rat strain-independent markers for tumor cells of epithelial origin, such as colon, breast, or lung cancer, etc. When injected in colon tumor-bearing rats, MG1 localizes to tumor cells (Hagenaars et al., 2001). MG1 is suitable for for immunohistochemical staining of tumor cells in frozen tissue sections as well as formalin-fixed/paraffin-embedded tissue. MG1 is also suitable for flow cytometry, Western blotting, immunoprecipitation, and ELISA. This monoclonal antibody recognizes a cell surface structure of about 80 kD expressed by rat tumor cells of epithelial origin. In immunohistochemical stainings, there is some cross reactivity in thymus, lymph nodes.
