Description: The monoclonal antibody P1H12 recognizes CD146 also known as MUC18, s-endo, Endo-CAM and Mel-CAM, which is a member of the Ig superfamily of proteins. The expression of CD146 is found on endothelial cells, bone marrow fibroblasts and some tumors (especially melanoma). Recently mesenchymal stromal cells and endometrial stromal cells have also been shown to express CD146. The presence of CD146 on circulating blood cells have been confined to a subset of T cells rather than circulating endothelial cells, as expression of other endothelial markers (CD31 and CD51/61) is negative. Expression can be found on activated lymphocytes. The protein is heavily glycosylated with more than 50% of the mass from carbohydrates.
The antibody P1H12 has been reported to crossreact to mouse, rabbit, canine, but not rat.
Applications Reported: This P1H12 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This P1H12 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells and Human Umbilical Vein Cells (HUVEC). This can be used at 5 µL (0.25 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test.
Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 520 nm; Laser: Blue Laser.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
MCAM plays a role in cell adhesion, and in cohesion of the endothelial monolayer at intercellular junctions in vascular tissue. Its expression may allow melanoma cells to interact with cellular elements of the vascular system, thereby enhancing hematogeneous tumor spread. It could be an adhesion molecule active in neural crest cells during embryonic development. It acts as surface receptor that triggers tyrosine phosphorylation of FYN and PTK2, and a transient increase in the intracellular calcium concentration.
