CD326 antibody | HEA-125
Mouse anti Human CD326
- Product Type
- Monoclonal Antibody
|Mouse anti human CD236 antibody, clone HEA-125 recognizes CD326 also known as Adenocarcinoma-associated antigen, Epithelial glycoprotein 314 or Epithelial Cell Adhesion Molecule (Ep-CAM). CD326 is a 314 amino acid ~34 kDa single pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein nearing a single thyroglobulin type-1 domain (UniProt: P16422).
CD326 is expressed on the basolateral membrane of cells by the majority of epithelial tissues, with the exception of adult squamous epithelium and some specific epithelial cell types including hepatocytes and gastric epithelial cells.
CD326 expression has been reported to be a possible marker of early malignancy, with expression being increased in tumour cells (Balzar et al. 1999), and de novo expression being seen in dysplastic squamous epithelium (Winter et al. 2003). CD326 has been identified independently by a number of groups, and it has been known by a variety of names including Epithelial Specific Antigen, MOC31 (Proca et al. 2000) and Ber-EP4 (Patriarca et al. 2012).
