|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_000602, 10835165|
|Calculated MW||14 kDa|
|Application Notes||CD59 antibody can be used for detection of CD59 by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||CD59 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.|
|Precautions||CD59 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||MIC11, MIN1, MIN2, MIN3, MSK21|
|Function||Potent inhibitor of the complement membrane attack complex (MAC) action. Acts by binding to the C8 and/or C9 complements of the assembling MAC, thereby preventing incorporation of the multiple copies of C9 required for complete formation of the osmolytic pore. This inhibitor appears to be species-specific. Involved in signal transduction for T-cell activation complexed to a protein tyrosine kinase.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor, GPI-anchor. Secreted. Note=Soluble form found in a number of tissues|

CD59 Antibody: The complement regulatory protein CD59 is a cell surface glycoprotein that regulates complement-mediated cell lysis and is involved in lymphocyte signal transduction. CD59 is a potent inhibitor of the complement membrane attack complex, whereby it binds complement C8 and/or C9 during the assembly of this complex, thereby inhibiting the incorporation of multiple copies of C9 into the complex, which is necessary for osmolytic pore formation. CD59 also plays a role in signal transduction pathways in the activation of T cells. Mutations in this gene cause CD59 deficiency, a disease resulting in hemolytic anemia and thrombosis, and ultimately cerebral infarction.
