  • Cancers detailed: Breast cancer;Ovarian;Colon;Broadly Applicable
  • Research fields: Cancer;Cell biology;Cell signaling and signal transduction
  • Clone: SM3
  • Tool sub type: Primary antibody
  • Class: Monoclonal
  • Conjugation: Unconjugated
  • Strain: Balb/c
  • Reactivity: Human
  • Host: Mouse
  • Application: ELISA ; FACS ; IHC
  • Description: SM3 antibody recognises this under-glycosylated form of MUC1 and is therefore tunour specific and may be relevant for breast cancer therapy. SM3 also detects MUC1 within colon and ovarian cancer and most adenocarcinomas and may be used for immunohistochemistry (reactive with methacarn fixed tissue), and immunotargeting.
  • Immunogen: Hydrogen fluoride deglycosylated milk mucin.
  • Isotype: IgG2a kappa
  • Myeloma used: P3X63Ag8.653
  • Recommended controls: MCF7 cells (FACS) or human breast carcinoma (IHC)

Target Details

  • Target: Mucin1 (MUC1)
  • Tissue cell line specificity: MCF7 cells (FACS) or human breast carcinoma (IHC)
  • Target background: MUC1 is a large cell surface mucin glycoprotein expressed by most glandular and ductal epithelial cells and some hematopoitic cell lineages. In the vast majority of human carcinomas, this protein is upregulated, poorly glycosylated and appears on the cell surface in a non-polarised fashion.
