|Background:||CD326 / EpCAM (also known as ESA, EGP40, EGP-2, KSA1/4, CO17-1A, GA733-2, MOC31, Ber-EP4) is a 40 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein serving as adhesion molecule in the basolateral membranes in a variety of epithelial cells. CD326 mediates calcium-independent homotypic cell-cell adhesions. CD326 over-expression has been detected in many epithelial tumours and is often associated with bad prognosis. It has been used for diagnostics of (pre-) malignancies at early stages.|
