Reproducibility is key to advancing scientific discovery and accelerating scientists’ next breakthrough.
Abcam is leading the way with our range of recombinant antibodies, knockout-validated antibodies and knockout cell lines, all of which support improved reproducibility.
We are also planning to innovate the way in which we present recommended applications and species on our product datasheets, so that only applications & species that have been tested in our own labs, our suppliers or by selected trusted collaborators are covered by our Abpromise™ guarantee.
In preparation for this, we have started to update the applications & species that this product is Abpromise guaranteed for.
We are also updating the applications & species that this product has been “predicted to work with,” however this information is not covered by our Abpromise guarantee.
Applications & species from publications and Abreviews that have not been tested in our own labs or in those of our suppliers are not covered by the Abpromise guarantee.

RelevanceHuman MUC12 (Mucin 12) is a novel mucin of epithelial mucins, which are large, secreted or cell surface glycoproteins involved in epithelial cell protection, adhesion modulation, and signaling. Using differential display on RNA from paired normal colonic mucosa and primary colorectal tumor, MUC12 is identified as one of the 2 partial cDNAs representing novel mucin genes as well as MUC11. They are downregulated in colorectal tumors.The deduced MUC12 protein contains a predicted transmembrane domain, 2 extracellular cysteine-rich EGF-like domains, a coiled-coil region, and a domain consisting of serine-, threonine-, and proline-rich degenerate tandem repeats of 28 amino acids, a structural feature typical of mucins. Human MUC12 shares high sequence homology with MUC3 and MUC4 . Northern blot analysis of 50 different normal tissues detected MUC12 expression in colon, pancreas, prostate, and uterus, with highest expression in colon. The MUC12 transcript is large, estimated to be longer than 12 kb. Expression of MUC12 was downregulated or absent in 6 of 15 (40%) colorectal tumors, as compared with matched normal colonic tissues. MUC12 expression was not detected in any of 6 colorectal cancer cell lines examined.
