CA-125 (cancer antigen 125, carcinoma antigen 125, or carbohydrate antigen 125) also known as mucin 16 or MUC16 is encoded by the MUC16 gene in humans. MUC16 is a member of the mucin family of glycoproteins. CA-125 is most consistently elevated in epithelial ovarian cancer, but can be expressed in a number of gynecologic (endometrial, fallopian tube) and non- gynecologic (pancreatic, breast, colon and lung) cancers. It may also be elevated in cases of benign abnormalities such as endometriosis.
Antigen: CA-125 purified from ovarian carcinoma cells.
Host Species: Mouse
Antibody Class: IgG1
Specificity: #3330 and #3345 epitope specificity group B (ISOBM* classification). #3346 epitope specificity group A (ISOBM* classification)
