Target Details

  • Target: Epithelial Membrane Antigen (EMA)
  • Target background: Glycoproteins isolated from human milk fat globule membranes, designated epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), have been detected immunohistochemically in most non-neoplastic epithelia and are potentially a highly effective marker for establishing the epithelial nature of neoplastic cells. Anti-EMA was created for use in diagnostic immunocytochemistry for identification of tumours of epithelial origins. EMA is present within membranes of the apical side of secretory epithelia, and is typically overexpressed in colon, breast, ovarian, lung and pancreatic cancers.
