Target Details

  • Target: L1 cell adhesion molecule (L1CAM; CD171)
  • Molecular weight: 220-240 kDa
  • Tissue cell line specificity: Frozen mouse E16.5 lung sections (IHC), Cell lines TR 14, LAN-1, CHP 100, CHP212, CHP126 ( Neuroblastomas or Schwannomas) (IF), M5 melanoma cells or human foetal brain (WB)
  • Target background: Anti-L1CAM (UJ127.11) recognises L1 cell adhesion molecule (L1CAM), a cell-surface glycoprotein of 220-240kDa (doublet) and member of the neural adhesion molecule family of the immunoglobulin superfamily. UJ127.11 may be useful in the diagnosis of embryonic tumours (e.g. neuroblastoma) or for the purpose of bone marrow purging. Studies on normal foetal and adult tissues show that UJ127:11 recognises antigen restricted in its expression to cells of neural rather than glial origin. Neural tumours such as neuroblastoma, medulloblastoma, schwannomas and ganglioglioma bind the monoclonal antibody whereas malignancies originating from glial cells do not bind UJ 127:11 this allows for diagnosis of the origin of brain tumour. This antibody has little cross-reactivity with tissues outside of the neuroectoderm. L1CAM is implicated in the development of the nervous system and its expression is restricted to tissues arising from the neuroectoderm. L1CAM is present on tumours of neuroectodermal and glial origin (e.g. neuroblastoma and schwannomas). L1CAM also plays an important role in axon growth, fasciculation, neural migration and in mediating neuronal differentiation. Expression of L1 protein is restricted to tissues arising from neuroectoderm.
