|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-Pig CD31, clone LCI-4 recognizes porcine CD31, also known as Platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule (PECAM-1). CD31 is constitutively expressed by platelets, monocytes and some lymphocytes, it is expressed by endothelial cells at a level, an order of magnitude greater that of other cell types (Fawcwettet al.1995). The extracellular region contains six Ig-like domains. Clone LCI-4 is cross reactive with human CD31 and binds to the 5th extracellular Ig domain, proximal to the transmambrane region as demonstrated by human CD31 domain deletion mutant protein binding studies (Nasuet al.1999).Mouse anti-Pig CD31, clone LCI-4 immunoprecipitates a protein of ~130 kDa from lysates of porcine aortic endothelial cells and is strongly expressed at cell junctions (Nasuet al.1999).|
