APPLICATION

Application Note

*Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the researcher.
Application Dilution
WB 1 - 2 μg/mL
ELISA Assay dependent
Not tested in other applications.

Calculated MW

122 kDa. ( Note )

Positive Control

HeLa Cell Lysate

Specificity/Sensitivity

Multiple isoforms of MUC1 are known to exist. MUC1 often migrates at a higher molecular weight in SDS-PAGE due to high levels of post-translational modification.

Background

This gene encodes a membrane-bound protein that is a member of the mucin family. Mucins are O-glycosylated proteins that play an essential role in forming protective mucous barriers on epithelial surfaces. These proteins also play a role in intracellular signaling. This protein is expressed on the apical surface of epithelial cells that line the mucosal surfaces of many different tissues including lung, breast stomach and pancreas. This protein is proteolytically cleaved into alpha and beta subunits that form a heterodimeric complex. The N-terminal alpha subunit functions in cell-adhesion and the C-terminal beta subunit is involved in cell signaling. Overexpression, aberrant intracellular localization, and changes in glycosylation of this protein have been associated with carcinomas. This gene is known to contain a highly polymorphic variable number tandem repeats (VNTR) domain. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Feb 2011]
