Invented by Dr Margaret Goodall at University Of Birmingham

Info

Catalogue Number 153233
Applications IHC
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets CD44
Synonyms Cell differentiation 44; Homing cell adhesion molecule; HCAM; phagocytic glycoprotein-1; Pgp-1; Hermes antigen; lymphocyte homing receptor; ECM-III; HUTCH-1.
Reactivity Human
Relevance The CD44 antigen is a cell-surface glycoprotein involved in cell to cell and cell-matrix interactions, cell adhesion and migration, which it achieves through its affinity for hyaluronic acid (HA) and possibly also through its affinity for other ligands such as osteopontin, collagens, and matrix metalloproteinases. CD44 is also involved in lymphocyte activation, recirculation and homing, and in hematopoiesis. Altered expression or dysfunction causes numerous pathogenic phenotypes.
Host Mouse
