|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-Human CD44v5 antibody, clone VFF-8 specifically recognises an epitope encoded by exon v5 on the variant region of human CD44. CD44 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein of variable molecular weight ranging from ~90 kDa to ~220 kDa depending on alternate splicing of the variable region exons and on the degree of glycosylation. CD44 is expressed on multiple cell types and is involved in multiple functions including cell-cell interactions and cell-extracellular matrix binding. Hyaluronan, a high molecular weight polysaccharide component of the extracellular matrix acts as the principal ligand for the CD44 receptor (Laurent and Fraser 1992).CD44 isoforms containing one or more sequences encoded by the variant region exons have a much more restricted expression pattern both in terms of organ specificity and immune activation (Mackayet al.1994). CD44 isoforms bearing the v5 exon product have been implicated in various neoplasms including breast cancer (Tempferet al.1996), renal cell carcinoma (Wuet al.2003) and cervical cancer metastases (Kainzet al.1996).Mouse anti-Human CD44v5 antibody has proved a useful reagent for the imunohistochemical or flow cytometric evaluation of CD44 variants containing the v5exon product expression in normal and neoplasic cells (Ringelet al.2001)|
