Anti-Epithelial-Specific Antigen


Monoclonal antibody MOC-31 recognizes the cluster 2 antigen which is a 40 kD transmembrane glycoprotein present on the membrane of epithelial cells. It is a highly reliable and sensitive marker to distinguish between reactive epithelial and mesothelial cells. Since MOC-31 reacts with virtually all normal epithelia and adenocarcinomas but not with mesothelial cells, this antibody can serve as a reliable marker for determining the origin of pleural and peritoneal tumors.
