The Human MUCIN 1 (CA15-3) (MUC1) ELISA quantitates Hu MUC1 in human serum, plasma, or cell culture medium. The assay will exclusively recognize both natural and recombinant Hu MUC1. Principle of the method The Human MUC1 solid-phase sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) is designed to measure the amount of the target bound between a matched antibody pair. A target-specific antibody has been pre-coated in the wells of the supplied microplate. Samples, standards, or controls are then added into these wells and bind to the immobilized (capture) antibody. The sandwich is formed by the addition of the second (detector) antibody, a substrate solution is added that reacts with the enzyme-antibody-target complex to produce measurable signal. The intensity of this signal is directly proportional to the concentration of target present in the original specimen. Rigorous validation Each manufactured lot of this ELISA kit is quality tested for criteria such as sensitivity, specificity, precision, and lot-to-lot consistency. See manual for more information on validation.MUC1 (Mucin 1, Episialin, MAM-6, CA 15-3, PEM and EMA) is a large cell surface mucin glycoprotein expressed by most glandular and ductal epithelial cells and some hematopoietic cell lineages. MUC1 is a transmembrane glycoprotein with a large mucin-like extracellular domain that matures through several intermediate forms generated by proteolysis, and sequential addition and processing of numerous O-linked glycans that are heavily sialylated. MUC1 is highly polymorphic and each allele encodes a product that contains a different number of repeats (between 30 and 90) leading to large differences in molecular weight of the protein. MUC1 is expressed on most secretory epithelium, including mammary gland and some hematopoietic cells, and is expressed abundantly in >90% breast carcinomas and metastases. Transgenic MUC1 has been shown to associate with all four cebB receptors and localize with erbB1 (EGFR) in lactating glands. The MUC1 gene contains seven exons and produces several different alternatively spliced variants. Overexpression, aberrant intracellular localization, and changes in glycosylation of the MUC1 protein have been associated with carcinomas. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different isoforms of the MUC1 gene have been reported, but the full-length nature of only some has been determined. Transgenic MUC-1 has been shown to associate with all four cebB receptors and localize with erbB1 (EGFR) in lactating glands.
