Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain (Met 1-Lys265) of human EpCAM (NP_002345.1) was fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Human EpCAM Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 96 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by its ability to induce adhesion of ATDC5 mouse chondrogenic cells.When cells are added to EpCAM-His coated plates (1.25μg/mL, 100μL/well), approximately >40% will adhere specifically after 300 minutes at 37℃.
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Gln 24
Molecule Mass:The recombinant human EpCAM consists of 253 amino acids after removal of the signal peptide and has a calculated molecular mass of 29 kDa. In SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, the apparent molecular mass of rh EpCAM is approximately 36 kDa due to glycosylation.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.

EpCAM/TROP-1/TACSTD1 Background

Epithelial Cell Adhesion Molecule (EpCAM), also known as GA733-2 antigen, is a type â… transmembrane glycoprotein composed of an extracellular domain with two EGF-Like repeats and a cystenin-rich region, a transmembrane domain and a cytoplasmic domain. It modulates cell adhesion and proliferation. Its overexpression has been detected in many epithelial tumours and has been associated with high stage, high grade and a worse survival in some tumour types. EpCAM has been shown to function as a calcium-independent homophilic cell adhesion molecule that does not exhibit any obvious relationship to the four known cell adhesion molecule superfamilies. However, recent insights have revealed that EpCAM participates in not only cell adhesion, but also in proliferation, migration and differentiation of cells. In addition, recent study revealed that EpCAM is the Wnt-beta-catenin signaling target gene and may be used to facilitate prognosis. It has oncogenic potential and is activated by release of its intracellular domain, which can signal into the cell nucleus by engagement of elements of the wnt pathway.
