Description: The DREG-56 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD62L, a 76 kDa member of the selectin family. CD62L is expressed by neutrophils, monocytes, and subsets of T, B, and NK cells and binds a number of glycosylated, fucosylated, sulfated sialylated glycoproteins including CD34, glycam-1 and MAdCAM-1. These interactions mediate rolling of lymphocytes on activated endothelium at the sites of inflammation and homing of cells to the high endothelial venules (HEV) of peripheral lymphoid tissues.
Applications Reported: This DREG-56 (DREG56) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis, non-reducing conditions-immunoblotting (WB), and immunohistology staining of frozen tissue sections. DREG-56 has also been reported in inhibition of binding to HEV. (Please use Functional Grade purified DREG-56 (DREG56), cat. 16-0629, in functional assays.).
Applications Tested: The DREG-56 (DREG56) antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 1 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
The human CD62L is a 74-95 kDa glycoprotein member of the selectin family of adhesion receptors. L-Selectin is comprised of an aminoterminal C-type lectin binding domain, an epidermal growth factor-like domain, two short consensus repeat (SCR) sequences homologous to those found in complement binding proteins, a short spacer region, a transmembrane region and a short cytoplasmic region. Human CD62L (L-Selectin) is constitutively expressed on all classes of leukocytes including lymphocytes (except a substantial population of memory T cells), monocytes and polymorphonuclear cells.
