The KM114 antibody reacts with an epitope on both alloantigens and all isoforms of the CD44 glycoprotein (Pgp-1, Ly-24). The KM114 hybridoma was produced at the same time as the published clone KM201, and the mAb recognizes a different epitope from that recognized by mAb IM7. The standard form of CD44, lacking variable exons and referred to as CD44H or CD44S, is widely expressed on hematopoietic and non-hematopoietic cells. CD44 isoforms encoded by variable exons are expressed on epithelial cells, but only at low levels on most leukocytes. Mice with the Ly-24.1 alloantigen (e.g., BALB/c, CBA/J, DBA/1, DBA/2) have relatively large subsets of CD44H+ T lymphocytes, while Ly-24.2 strains (e.g., A, AKR, CBA/N, C3H/He, C57BL, C57BR, C57L, C58, NZB, SJL, SWR, 129) have lower expression of CD44H on T cells. CD44 is a cell adhesion receptor, and its ligand, hyaluronate, is a common component of extracellular matrices. Differential glycosylation of CD44 influences its binding to hyaluronate. Additional ligands include the cell-surface form of CD74 and the cytokine osteopontin (Eta-1).10 Bone marrow- and thymus-derived progenitor cells capable of repopulating the thymus express CD44. In the periphery, the level of CD44 expression increases upon activation of B lymphocytes, CD4+ T cells, and CD8+ T cells, and memory cells can be recognized by their CD44[hi] phenotype. KM114 antibody can be used in ELISA to detect soluble CD44, and it is effective for in vitro blocking of hyaluronate recognition by CD44. It has been reported that KM114 mAb cross-reacts with CD44 of the Chinese hamster, Cricetulus griseus, but not human CD44.
Synonyms: Pgp-1, H-CAM, Ly-24
1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
|Application Notes||For quantitation of soluble CD44, a sandwich ELISA using purified IM7 antibody for capture and biotinylated KM114 mAb for detection has been described. For IHC, we recommend the use of purified IM7 mAb in our special formulation for immunohistochemistry.|
