General description

Epithelial cell adhesion molecule (Ep-CAM) is a transmembrane glycoprotein localized on the membrane of cells in most epithelial tissues. Immunoreactivity with the antibody to E-CAM has been seen in the majority of epithelial neoplasms, whereas most non-epithelial neoplasms do not show Ep-CAM expression. Ep-CAM is not expressed in mesothelial cells, hepatocytes, and lymphocytes. In conjunction with other markers, Ep-CAM can be used as an aid in determining the epithelial origin of neoplasms such as lung adenocarcinoma.

At present, a large number of immunohistochemical markers that can be used in the differential diagnosis between epithelioid peritoneal mesotheliomas and serous carcinomas are available. However, great differences of opinion exist regarding the individual value of some of these markers.
