|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IHC-F, FC|
|Calculated MW||81538 Da|
|Immunogen||Glutathione S Transferase (GST) fusion protein corresponding to the variable domains (v3 to v10) of human CD44.|
|Shelf Life||18 months from date of despatch.|
|Other Names||CD44 antigen, CDw44, Epican, Extracellular matrix receptor III, ECMR-III, GP90 lymphocyte homing/adhesion receptor, HUTCH-I, Heparan sulfate proteoglycan, Hermes antigen, Hyaluronate receptor, Phagocytic glycoprotein 1, PGP-1, Phagocytic glycoprotein I, PGP-I, CD44, CD44, LHR, MDU2, MDU3, MIC4|
|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-Human CD44v4 antibody, clone VFF-11 specifically recognizes an epitope encoded by exon v4 on the variant portion of human CD44. CD44v4 is strongly expressed on some breast cancer cell lines, notably epithelial-like BT-20 cells where v4 containing isoforms posess functional E-selectin ligand activity mediating cell adhesion under physiological flow conditions (Shirureet al.2014).|
|Preservative & Stabilisers||0.09% Sodium Azide|
|Storage||Store at +4℃ or at -20 ℃.|
|Precautions||Anti-Human CD44v4 Antibody, clone VFF-11 is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
