Description:
Mucin 1 is a large transmembrane glycoprotein expressed on the ductal surface of normal glandular epithelia. The extracellular domain of MUC1 largely consists of a highly conserved, O-glycosylated 20 amino acid tandem repeat which can occur 30-100 times per molecule depending on the length of the allele involved. In the vast majority of human carcinomas this protein is upregulated and poorly glycosylated and appears on the cell surface in a non-polarized fashion. The dominant epitope of this antibody is the 8-mer SAPDTRPA of the MUC1 tandem repeat as established with epitope fingerprinting.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
