Immunofluorescent analysis of CD99 (green) showing staining in the membrane of Jurkat cells (right) compared to a negative control without primary antibody (left). Formalin-fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 5-10 minutes and blocked with 3% BSA-PBS for 30 minutes at room temperature. Cells were probed with a CD99 monoclonal antibody (Product # MA5-12954) in 3% BSA-PBS at a dilution of 1:20 and incubated overnight at 4°C in a humidified chamber. Cells were washed with PBST and incubated with a DyLight-conjugated secondary antibody in PBS at room temperature in the dark. F-actin (red) was stained with a fluorescent red phalloidin and nuclei (blue) were stained with Hoechst or DAPI. Images were taken at a magnification of 60x.

MA5-12954 targets CD99 in WB, IF, FACS and IHC (P) applications and shows reactivity with Human and Rat samples. This antibody is not suitable for Mouse spleen cells in Western blot analysis.
The MA5-12954 immunogen is purified E-rosette forming cells from human peripheral blood lymphocytes.
CD99, or MIC2 gene product, or E2 antigen is expressed on the cell membrane of some lymphocytes, cortical thymocytes, and granulosa cells of the ovary. The antigen is also expressed by most pancreatic islet cells, Sertoli cells of the testis, and some endothelial cells. Mature granulocytes express very little or no CD99. MIC2 is strongly expressed on Ewing's sarcoma cells and primitive peripheral neuroectodermal tumors.
