Gene Symbol EPCAM
Gene ID 4072
Accession # P16422
Source HEK293 cells
Appearance Lyophilized
Physical Form Description Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in PBS, pH 7.4. Normally Mannitol or Trehalose is added as protectants before lyophilization.
Molecular Weight This protein contains a poly histidine tag at C-terminus and has a calculated MW of 29 kDa after removal of signal peptide. The predicted N-terminus is Gln24. In DTT-reduced SDS-PAGE, rh EpCAM protein migrates as 33-36 kDa poly peptide due to glycosylatio
Purity by SDS-PAGE ≥95%
Endotoxin Level <1 EU/μg by LAL method
Biological Activity Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. Immobilized recombinant human Cathepsin V at 10 μg/mL (100 μl/well) can bind biotinylated EpCAM. The EC50 of biotinylated EpCAM is 50-70 ng/mL.
Reconstitution Instructions Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in sterile PBS, pH 7.4 to a concentration of 50 µg/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 month. For extended storage, it is recommended to store at -20°C.
Handling Centrifuge the vial prior to opening.
Storage Conditions -20°C

EpCAM is also known as CO171A,; EGP; EGP40; GA7332; KSA; M4S; MIC18; MK1; TROP1; hEGP2, and is a pan-epithelial differentiation antigen that is expressed on almost all carcinomas as 17-1A(mAb) antigen. Its constitutional function is being elucidated. It is intricately linked with the Cadherin-Catenin pathway and hence the fundamental WNT pathway responsible for intracellular signaling and polarity. The epithelial cell adhesion molecule (Ep-CAM) is known to express in most epithelial malignancies and was reported as a tumor marker or a candidate of molecular targeting therapy. Ep-CAM cross signaling with N-cadherin involves Pi3K, resulting in the abrogation of the cadherin adhesion complexes in epithelial cells was reported. And epithelial cell adhesion molecule (Ep-CAM) recently received increased attention as a prognostic factor in breast cancer.
