Description: The monoclonal antibody 2H7CD155 recognizes CD155 also known as the poliovirus receptor. The CD155 protein is a member of the Ig superfamily in which 4 isoforms exist; only the alpha and delta forms are expressed on the membrane of monocytes, prostate cancer cells, as well as neurectodermal and monocytic tumor cells lines. In addition, CD155 is found during mid-gastrulation during embryonic development. CD155 is thought to play a role in adhesion by interaction with the ECM component vitronectin as well as a role in NK killing of tumor cells. CD226 and CD96 are ligands for CD155. Blocking of CD155 is under therapeutic investigation for prevention of variants of poliovirus.
Applications Reported: This 2H7CD155 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 2H7CD155 antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells or the human tumor cell line U937. This may 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.

The protein encoded by this gene is a transmembrane glycoprotein belonging to the immunoglobulin superfamily. The external domain mediates cell attachment to the extracellular matrix molecule vitronectin, while its intracellular domain interacts with the dynein light chain Tctex-1/DYNLT1. The gene is specific to the primate lineage, and serves as a cellular receptor for poliovirus in the first step of poliovirus replication. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
