Summary

The mucin antigen recognized by Mc-5 is a glycosylated molecule with a molecular mass of 400 kD. The sequence to which this antibody binds is Thr-Arg-Pro-Ala-Pro. Although EMA is primarily located in mammary gland epithelium, other normal epithelia (e.g., lung) will also react against EMA antibody. Staining, however, is the strongest in mammary epithelia. The combination of positive staining for keratin with negative EMA can be used to phenotype the above-mentioned epithelial tumors. Recognizes the mucin antigen that is present in most epithelial tissues (breast, colonic, bronchial, gastric, etc.) This antibody does not recognize myelopoietic, lymphopoietic, fibroblasts or sarcomatous cells.

Functions

  • The alpha subunit has cell adhesive properties. Can act both as an adhesion and an anti-adhesion protein. May provide a protective layer on epithelial cells against bacterial and enzyme attack.
  • The beta subunit contains a C-terminal domain which is involved in cell signaling, through phosphorylations and protein-protein interactions. Modulates signaling in ERK, SRC and NF-kappa-B pathways. In activated T-cells, influences directly or indirectly the Ras/MAPK pathway. Promotes tumor progression. Regulates TP53-mediated transcription and determines cell fate in the genotoxic stress response. Binds, together with KLF4, the PE21 promoter element of TP53 and represses TP53 activity.
