MUC16, also named as CA125, is thought to provide a protective, lubricating barrier against particles and infectious agents at mucosal surfaces. It is a serum marker that is used routinely in gynecologic practice to monitor patients with ovarian cancer. Most biochemical studies have concluded that MUC16 is a high molecular mass glycoprotein, although estimates of its size range from 200 to 2000 kDa with smaller “subunits” being described by some investigators. The antibody recognizes the C-term of MUC16.
