Isotype
Mouse IgG1
Specificity
The antibody GCP-05 recognizes extracellular domain (preferentially in native form) of glutamate carboxypeptidase II (NAALADase, FOLH1, PSMA), an approximately 95-110 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein expressed mainly in tumour neovasculatures, nervous system and jejunum, which is an important prostate tumour marker.
Application
FC (QC tested), ICC
Reactivity
Human
Immunogen
amino acids 44-750 of human GCPII
Other names
Glutamate carboxypeptidase 2, GCPII, GCP2, NAALADase I, PGGCP, FGGCP, FGCP, Folate hydrolase 1, Prostate-specific membrane antigen
Concentration
