Flow cytometric analysis of unpermeabilized HT-29 cells using EpCAM (VU1D9) Mouse mAb (Pacific Blue™ Conjugate) (green) compared to a nonspecific negative control antibody (red).
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to Pacific Blue™ fluorescent dye and tested in-house for direct flow cytometry analysis in human cells. The antibody is expected to exhibit the same species cross-reactivity as the unconjugated EpCAM (VU1D9) Mouse mAb #2929.
Supplied in PBS (pH 7.2), less than 0.1% sodium azide and 2 mg/ml BSA. Store at 4°C. Do not aliquot the antibody. Protect from light. Do not freeze.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
NOTE: If live cell staining is desired, proceed to Section C.
NOTE: Count cells using a hemocytometer or alternative method.

EpCAM (VU1D9) Mouse mAb (Pacific Blue™ Conjugate) recognizes endogenous levels of total EpCAM protein.Species Reactivity:
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with NCI-H69 small cell lung carcinoma cells.
Epithelial cell adhesion and activating molecule (EpCAM/CD326) is a transmembrane glycoprotein that mediates Ca2+-independent, homophilic adhesions on the basolateral surface of most epithelial cells. EpCAM is not expressed in adult squamous epithelium, but it is highly expressed in adeno and squamous cell carcinomas (1). Research studies identified EpCAM as one of the first tumor-associated antigens, and it has long been a marker of epithelial and tumor tissue. Investigators have shown that EpCAM is highly expressed in cancer cells (reviewed in 2,3).
