Melan-A/MART-1 Antibody (M2-7C10) Summary

Recombinant human Melan-A protein was used as immunogen to generate the Melan-A antibody.
Melanoma Marker
This antibody recognizes a protein doublet of 20-22kDa, identified as MART-1 (Melanoma Antigen Recognized by T cells 1) or Melan-A. MART-1 is a newly identified melanocyte differentiation antigen recognized by autologous cytotoxic T lymphocytes. Seven other melanoma associated antigens recognized by autologous cytotoxic T cells include MAGE-1, MAGE-3, tyrosinase, gp100, gp75, BAGE-1, and GAGE-1. Subcellular fractionation shows that MART-1 is present in melanosomes and endoplasmic reticulum. This MAb labels melanomas and other tumors showing melanocytic differentiation. It is also a useful positive-marker for angiomyolipomas. It does not stain tumor cells of epithelial, lymphoid, glial, or mesenchymal origin.

MART-1 (Melanoma Antigen Recognize by T cells 1), also known as Melan-A, is an 18 kDa melanocyte differentiation antigen recognized by autologous cytotoxic T lymphocytes. MART-1 is expressed in melanosomes and the endoplasmic reticulum. MART-1 is the most widely used marker for identifying malignant melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, and facilitating complete removal of the primary tumor (Campoli, 2012). In this regard, MART-1 is used both as a confirmatory marker for melanocyte differentiation in S100 (protein present in melanocytes) positive lesions and a primary marker to evaluate the extent of melanocyte tumors (Ohsie, 2012, Collins, 2012). MART-1 specific monoclonal antibodies have high sensitivity (75-92%) and specificity (95-100%) for melanoma (Campoli, 2012, Oshie, 2012).
The clone M2-7C10 MART-1 antibody labels melanomas and other tumors showing melanocyte differentiation, and is widely used for assessing melanomas (Campoli, 2012, Ohsie, 2012, Collins, 2012). Analysis of melanoma lesions with this antibody shows that there is significant heterogeneity of expression of MART-1 both as a percentage of cells and in intensity of expression (Marincola, 1996). The reactivity of the MART-1 antibody is not restricted to melanoma, and the antibody has also been shown to label some mesenchymal tumors and sarcomas (Campoli, 2012).
The exact eptiope recognized by this MART-1 antibody has not been mapped. However, the MART-1 epitope recognized by this antibody appears to be different from that recognized by the M2-9E3 MART-1 antibody clone (ABX-126A) (Kawakami, 1997). Researchers often use more than one antibody against a given specificity to help follow up and validate results. Hence, it may be useful to use both the ABX-125A and ABX-126A antibodies in parallel to obtain additional information about MART-1 expression.
