This product binds Mesothelin, a 40kDa GPI-anchored cell surface glycoprotein. Mesothelin is a differentiation antigen present on normal mesothelial cells and overexpressed in several human tumors, including mesothelioma; ovarian and pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Mesothelin is attached to the cell membrane by a glycosylphosphatidyl inositol linkage and a 31-kDa shed fragment named megakaryocyte-potentiating factor (MPF). The biological function of mesothelin is not known.
The K1 antibody has been used to differentiate between epithelial malignant mesothelioma and lung adenocarcinomas by immunohistology.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
