    C57BL/6 mouse frozen thymus section was fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (PFA) for 10 minutes at room temperature and blocked with 5% FBS for 30 minutes at room temperature. Then the section was stained with 5 µg/ml CD326 (clone G8.8) Alexa Fluor® 488 (green) and CD90.2 (clone 30-H12) Alexa Fluor® 647 (red) overnight at 4°C. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue). The image was captured by 10X objective.

    Dissected C57/B6 mouse stomach was immersed in 4% paraformaldehyde (PFA) overnight followed by 30% sucrose immersion overnight and frozen in OCT. Frozen section was blocked with 5% FBS and 5% mouse serum for 30 minutes at room temperature. Then the tissue section was stained with 2.5 µg/mL of anti-mouse Tubulin Beta 3 (clone AA10) Alexa Fluor® 647 (red) and 2.5 µg/mL of anti-mouse CD326 (clone G8.8) Alexa Fluor® 488 (green) overnight at 4°C. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue). The image was captured by 10X objective.

Description

EpCAM (CD326) mediates calcium-independent homophilic cell to cell adhesion. It may also function as a growth factor receptor. It is thought to be involved in maintaining cells in position during proliferation. Expression of EpCAM seems to correlate inversely with the level of E-cadherin (CD324). EpCAM is considered important in tumor biology.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤ 2.0 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. For immunohistochemical staining on frozen tissue sections, a concentration range of 2.5 - 10 µg/ml is suggested. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

* Alexa Fluor® 488 has a maximum emission of 519 nm when it is excited at 488 nm.
