ESA (Epithelial Specific Antigen)

Ref: AP10022 – Clone: MOC-31 – Host: Mouse – Method: P,F – Format: Ready to use

SKU: AP10022 Category: Tag:



The monoclonal antibody of clone MOC-31 reacts with an epithelial antigen expressed by most normal and malignant epithelia. At the 2nd International Workshop on small cell lung cancer antigens MOC-31 was assigned to the SCLC cluster 2. This group contains antibodies which react with an epithelial antigen. This antigen was shown to be a 40 kDa trans-membrane glycoprotein of unknown function. Antibodies of clone MOC-31 are i.e. often used for detection of disseminated tumour cells in bone marrow.

Clone: MOC-31

Isotype: Mouse IgG 1/kappa

Immunogen: Neuraminidase-treated cells from a cell line variant of a small cell lung cancer (GLS-1).

Staining pattern: Cell membrane.

Positive control: Tissue sample from lung, breast or colon adenocarcinoma.


This antibody is designed for the specific localization of human ESA using IHC techniques in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections.
