Mucin 1 (MUC1) is a cell surface mucin glycoprotein and is expressed on the apical borders of most glandular epithelial cells, ductal epithelial cells, and some hematopoietic cell lineages. In neoplastic tissues, MUC1 may be expressed on the entire cell surface (depolarized expression). MUC1 is overexpressed in many human cancers, including non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) and breast carcinoma.
Tissue-Tek Genie<sup>&reg;</sup><br /> anti-MUC1 Pancreatic acini show a diffuse strong granular cytoplasmic staining reaction for MUC1, while the bile ducts show a cytoplasmic and apical membrane reaction. The fibrous stroma is negative.

Squamous epithelia, as in this benign cervical specimen, may show a weak to moderate cytoplasmic and membraneous staining reaction for MUC1 that is typically in the superficial layers.

Normal hepatocytes show a negative staining reaction for MUC1 in this benign liver. Focal granular cytoplasmic reactivity is seen among bile ducts.
