anti-CD146 antibody
Mouse anti Human CD146 antibody, clone OJ79c recognizes human Cell surface glycoprotein MUC18, also known as CD146, Cell surface glycoprotein P1H12, Melanoma cell adhesion molecule or S-endo 1 endothelial-associated antigen. CD146 is a 646 amino acid single pass type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein with a calculated molecular mass of ~72 kDa. However due to extensive N-linked glycosylation CD146 migrates in polyacrylamide gels with an apparent molecular mass of ~:118 kDa. CD146 is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily bearing 2 V-type Ig-like and 3 C-type Ig-like domains. CD146 is expressed by all endothelial cells and by melanoma cells and appears to act as an adhesion molecule (UniProt: P43121). Expression in melanoma may be linked to tumor progression (Lehmann et al. 1989). Mouse anti Human CD146 antibody, clone OJ79c is highly expressed on pericytes and has been utilized for the identification of perivascular mesenchymal precursor cells from cardiac muscle using flow cytometry (Chen et al. 2014).

Published customer image: Brain-derived cell lines express markers for mesenchymal stem cells and pericytes but not for glial or neuronal precursors. (A) Representative histogram of flow cytometry analysis of cortical line and (B) ventricular zone line. Progenitors from all donors and both regions highly express MSC (CD90, CD73, CD105, CD29, CD166 and CD49d) and pericyte markers (CD140b/PDGFR-beta, RGS5, CD146, Nestin, a-SMA and NG2). They do not express hematopoietic (CD45), endothelial (CD31, CD34), microglial (CD14, CD11), glial or neuronal precursor cell markers (GFAP, O4) or myofibroblast markers (CD56), (green = isotype, red = respective marker).From: Paul G, Özen I, Christophersen NS, Reinbothe T, Bengzon J, et al.

UniProt Comments for CD146
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. Could be an adhesion molecule active in neural crest cells during embryonic development. Acts as surface receptor that triggers tyrosine phosphorylation of FYN and PTK2/FAK1, and a transient increase in the intracellular calcium concentration. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.

Protein type: Membrane protein, integral; Cell adhesion

Chromosomal Location of Human Ortholog: 11q23.3

Cellular Component: extracellular space; focal adhesion; plasma membrane; integral to membrane; nucleus; external side of plasma membrane

Biological Process: anatomical structure morphogenesis; glomerular filtration; angiogenesis; cell adhesion; positive regulation of cell migration
