This antibody recognizes the 34kD cell surface antigen known as CD326 or Epithelial Cell Adhesion Molecule (Ep-CAM). This antigen has been identified independently by a number of groups, and it has been known by a variety of names including Epithelial Specific Antigen, MOC31 and Ber-EP4. Several monoclonal antibodies have been raised against Ep-CAM, many of which have been described as tumour specific molecules on carcinomas.Ep-CAM is a Type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein. It is expressed on the basolateral membrane of cells by the majority of epithelial tissues, with the exception of adult squamous epithelium and some specific epithelial cell types including hepatocytes and gastric epithelial cells.Ep-CAM expression has been reported to be a possible marker of early malignancy, with expression being increased in tumour cells, and de novo expression being seen in dysplastic squamous epithelium
