This MAb reacts with MUC1/EMA. It is a large cell surface mucin glycoprotein expressed by most glandular and ductal epithelial cells. It is expressed on most secretory epithelium, including mammary gland. It is expressed abundantly in lactating mammary glands and over expressed abundantly in 90% breast carcinomas and metastases.MUC1/EMA may provide a protective layer on epithelial cells against bacterial and enzyme attack.In immunohistochemical assays, it superbly stains routine formalin-paraffin carcinoma tissues. Antibody to EMA is useful as a pan-epithelial marker for detecting early metastatic loci of carcinoma in bone marrow or liver.
Immunofluorescence (1-2µg/ml); Immunohistochemistry (Formalin-fixed) (0.25-0.5µg/ml for 30 minutes at RT)(Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes)Optimal dilution for a specific application should be determined.
