|The CA-125 n/a (Catalog #MBS190630) is an Antibody produced from Mouse and is intended for research purposes only. The product is available for immediate purchase. MyBioSource\'s CA-125 can be used in a range of immunoassay formats including, but not limited to, ELISA (EIA), Western Blot (WB). Researchers should empirically determine the suitability of the CA-125 n/a for an application not listed in the data sheet. Researchers commonly develop new applications and it is an integral, important part of the investigative research process.
The CA-125 n/a product has the following accession number(s) (GI #394986395) (NCBI Accession #4F3F_C). Researchers may be interested in using Bioinformatics databases such as those available at The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) website for more information about accession numbers and the proteins they represent. Even researchers unfamiliar with bioinformatics databases will find the NCBI databases to be quite user friendly and useful.

Please refer to the product datasheet for known applications of a given antibody. We\'ve tested the CA-125 Monoclonal Antibodies with the following immunoassay(s):
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. Positive Control: OVCAR3 ovarian adenocarcinoma cells.
Dilution Instructions: Dilute in PBS or medium that is identical to that used in the assay system. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing CA-125 are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as CA-125 may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results.
