|Other Names||CD48 antigen, B-lymphocyte activation marker BLAST-1, BCM1 surface antigen, Leukocyte antigen MEM-102, SLAM family member 2, SLAMF2, Signaling lymphocytic activation molecule 2, TCT1, CD48, CD48, BCM1, BLAST1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8664b was selected from the C-term region of human CD48. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Ligand for CD2. Might facilitate interaction between activated lymphocytes. Probably involved in regulating T-cell activation.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor, GPI-anchor|

BLAST1 is the designation used for an activation-associated cell surface glycoprotein of 40 to 45 kD expressed primarily in mitogen-stimulated human lymphocytes. The protein sequence predicted by the cDNA encoding BLAST1 indicates that BLAST1 is a member of the immunoglobulin supergene family. Yokoyama (1991) identified the BLAST1 activation/adhesion molecule as CD48.
