Application:

FC - Quality tested

Application Notes:

Additional reported applications for clone G8.8 (for the relevant formats) include: immunohistochemistry of frozen sections: acetone fixed1, with or without OCT embedding2,4.

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤1.0 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

TE-71 (mouse thymic epithelial stromal

TE-71 (mouse thymic epithelial stromal cell line) cells were stained with CD326 (clone G8.8) PE (filled histogram) or rat IgG2a, κ PE isotype control (open histogram).



Description:

EpCAM (CD326) mediates calcium-independent homophilic cell to cell adhesion. It may also function as a growth factor receptor. It is thought to be involved in maintaining cells in position during proliferation. Expression of EpCAM seems to correlate inversely with the level of E-cadherin (CD324). EpCAM is considered important in tumor biology.

Other Names: CD326, EGP40, MIC18, TROP1, KSA
Structure: 40 kD single-pass type 1 glycoprotein. 293 amino acids, with a 21 aa signal peptide, a 246 aa extracellular domain, a 21 aa transmembrane domain, and a 26 aa cytoplasmic domain. The extracellular domain contains two epidermal growth factor-like repeats.
Distribution: Expressed on majority of epithelial cell membranes with the exception of adult squamous cells of the skin and a few specific epithelial cell types.
Function: Mediates calcium-independent homophilic cell-cell adhesion.
Ligand Receptor: CD305 (LAIR-1), CD306 (LAIR-2), and Ep-CAM.
Interaction: CD326 displays hemophilic binding.
