Anti-Melanoma (MCSP) antibodies, human

Anti-Melanoma (MCSP) antibodies, human

Clone: EP-1 | Dilution: 1:50
The Anti-Melanoma (MCSP) antibody recognizes the melanoma-associated chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan (MCSP) antigen, also known as high molecular weight melanoma-associated antigen. MCSP is expressed on the majority (>90%) of human melanoma tissues and melanoma cell lines but not on carcinoma cells, fibroblastoid cells, and cells of hematopoietic origin.
