|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-Human CD55 antibody, clone Bu14 recognizes human CD55, also known as Decay Accelerating Factor (DAF). CD55 is a glycosylphosphatylinositol (GPI) anchored type I surface protein which prevents complement mediated lysis of autologous cells. CD55 functions to limit the formation and accelerate the decay of C3/C5-convertases from the classic and alternative pathway. The molecular weight of CD55 varies between 50 and 100kDa dependent on cell type. Alternative transcripts can lead to soluble DAF, which is detectable in plasma, tears, saliva, urine and cerebrospinal fluid. CD55 is the receptor for CD97, Echovirus and Coxsackie B virus, and has been linked to many diseases including multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and cancer development.|
