DescriptionThis SM3 monoclonal antibody reacts with the under-glycosylated form of human Mucin 1 (MUC1, CD227), a large glycoprotein belonging to the mucin protein family. Mucin 1 contains a polypeptide core consisting of multiple tandem repeats that become highly glycosylated. Mucin 1 is typically expressed in ductal or glandular epithelial cells and is localized to the apical membrane. In cancerous cells, Mucin 1 expression is increased and membrane-specific localization is lost resulting in expression throughout the membrane and cytoplasm. High levels of under-glycosylated Mucin 1 are thought to affect cell behavior during both invasion and metastasis as well as in immune recognition. In addition, under-glycosylated Mucin 1 is shed from the epithelial cell surface and can be detected in circulation. Alterations in Mucin 1 glycosylation are found in most adenocarcinomas of the breast, lung, pancreas, prostate, and ovary. Mucin 1 has recently been shown to co-localize and interact with members of the erbB receptor kinase family, proteins that are upregulated in more aggressive forms of breast cancer.
Please note this antibody sees a distinct epitope from other Mucin 1 antibodies.
