Hepatocyte Specific Antigen (Hep Par 1) (Hepatocellular Marker); Clone OCH1E5 (Hep Par 1) (Concentrate)
Immunogen: Extract of a formalin-fixed, rejected allograft of a human liver
Clone: OCH1E5; same as Hep Par 1
Species Reactivity: Human and Dog. Others not known.
Positive Control: Liver or Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC).
Specificity: Hepatocyte Specific Antigen, also called Hepatocyte Paraffin 1 or Hep Par 1, localizes to the mitochondria of hepatocytes. It is a sensitive marker for distinguishing hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC) from other metastatic carcinomas as well as cholangio-carcinomas.
