Description: The WM-53 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD33, also known as GP67 and P67, a 67 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is a member of the Siglec (sialic acid-binding Ig superfamily lectin) family. It is highly specific to the hematopoietic compartment and is expressed on monocytes, activated T cells, granulocytes, myeloid progenitors, and mast cells.
Applications Reported: The WM-53 (WM53) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This WM-53 (WM53) antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human lysed whole blood. This can be used at 5 µL (0.5 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
CD33 is found on granulocyte and macrophage precursors in the bone marrow, but is not on pluripotent stem cells. The protein is also expressed on, and is a useful marker for, peripheral monocytes. It is also useful for distinguishing myelogenous leukaemia cells from lymphoid or erythroid leukaemias.
