Technical Data
Mucin 1 (MUC1 Glycoprotein, CD227)
Mucins are heavily glycosylated glycoproteins, which constitute the major components of mucus which cover the surface of epithelial tissues. Nine distinct epithelial mucin genes (Muc-1, 2, 3, 4, 5AC, 5B, 6,7 and 8) have been identified. Various immunohistochemical and in situ hybridization studies have shown that these mucins are differentially expressed in epithelia with cell-type specificity. Muc-5AC and Muc-6 glycoproteins are the first two mucins found in superficial epithelium and Muc-6 glycoprotein is found in the deep glands.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.

1mg-20CBlue IceHumanMouse
High molecular weight (>300kD) glycoprotein from human milk-fat globule molecule
Purified by Protein A affinity chromatography.
Supplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.4, 0.09% sodium azide.
Recognizes underglycosylated and natural MUC1 protein (isolated from human milk by affinity chromatography). Does not crossreact with normal serum proteins and human tissues of nonepithelial origin. Binds with high efficiency with different epitopes within the VNTR tandem repeat peptide conformations and peptide- carbohydrate compositions.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
