Episialin is also known as MUC1, MAM-6, CA 15-3, PEM and EMA. It is a transmembrane glycoprotein with a large mucin-like extracellular domain that matures through several intermediate forms geneRated by proteolysis, and sequential addition and processing of numerous O-linked glycans that are heavily sialylated. The gene encoding episialin (MUC1) is highly polymorphic and each allele encodes a product that contains a different number of repeats (between 30 and 90) leading to large differences in molecular weight of the protein. Episialin is present in several secretory epithelial cell types.

GP1.4 is a Mouse monoclonal IgG1 antibody derived by fusion of Mouse myeloma cells with spleen cells from a Mouse immunized with Human milk fat globule.

Each vial contains 500 ul 0.2 mg/ml purified monoclonal antibody in PBS containing 0.05% BSA and 0,05% sodium azide.

GP1.4 reacts with all glycoforms of Episialin

GP1.4 is suitable for immunoblotting, immunocytochemistry and immunohistochemistry on frozen and paraffin-embedded tissues, and flow cytometry. Optimal antibody dilution should be determined by titration; recommended range is 1:10 – 1:50 for flow cytometry, and for immunohistochemistry with avidin-biotinylated Horseradish peroxidase complex (ABC) as detection reagent, and 1:25 – 1:250 for immunoblotting applications.

The antibody is shipped at ambient temperature and may be stored at +4°C. For prolonged storage prepare appropriate aliquots and store at or below -20°C. Prior to use, an aliquot is thawed slowly in the dark at ambient temperature, spun down again and used to prepare working dilutions by adding sterile phosphate buffered saline (PBS, pH 7.2). Repeated thawing and freezing should be avoided. Working dilutions should be stored at +4°C, not refrozen, and preferably used the same day. If a slight precipitation occurs upon storage, this should be removed by centrifugation. It will not affect the performance or the concentration of the product.
