  • FC - Anti-Human CD31 Antibody, clone WM59  ABD12105
    Published customer image:Mouse anti Human CD31 antibody, clone WM59 used for the detection of CD31 positive cells by flow cytometry.Image caption:Characterisation of clonal perivascular MSC progenitor lines. (A) Single cell in vitro a few hours after plating, and culture at 7 and 21 days, respectively. Scale bar 50 µm. (B) Clonally derived MSC show the same antigen profile as detected for polyclonal lines with pericyte and MSC markers but neither neuronal nor glial precursor cell markers (O4, GFAP) (example here cortical clone; green = isotype, red = respective marker).(C) QPCR comparing clones derived from the ventricular zone (n = 2), and the cortex (n = 2) to a human neuronal progenitor cell line MesC2.10. Data show the relative higher expression of mRNA for RGS5, PDGFR-ß and a-SMA in the MSC clones compared to the control. As expected, Nestin mRNA was present in perivascular MSC clones and neural progenitors at comparable amounts. NG2 mRNA was slightly higher expressed in the MSC clones compared to the control. (D) Importantly, neural progenitors markers such as CD133, SOX1, NGN2, PAX6 and Musashi were highly expressed in the positive control but not detectable in MSC clones.From: Paul G, Özen I, Christophersen NS, Reinbothe T, Bengzon J, et al.

    Staining of human peripheral blood platelets with Mouse anti Human CD31:Biotin
  • FC - Anti-Human CD31 Antibody, clone WM59  ABD12105
    Published customer image:Mouse anti Human CD31 monoclonal antibody, clone WM59 used for the detection of CD31 expressing cells in cardiovacular procegitor cell cultures by immunofluorescence.Image caption:In vitro differentiation of ISL1+ CVP clones into cardiomyocytes, as well as endothelial and smooth muscle cells. Undifferentiated ISL1+ CVP clones were maintained in medium supplemented with EDN1 and WNT3A. Differentiation of the CVPs into various cardiac lineages was achieved using protocols described under material and method. (a) Immunocytochemistry demonstrating the presence of endothelial cell (EC; CD31+), smooth muscle cell (SM; SMMHC+) and cardiomyocyte (CM; CTNT+) on differentiation with various differentiation media. EC was stained with mouse anti-CD31 primary antibody while SM and CM were stained with mouse anti-SMMHC and mouse anti-CTNT, respectively, at 1:100 dilutions. Cell nuclei were stained with 4,6-diamindino-2-phenylindole . Scale bar, 100?μm. (b) Graphical representation illustrating differentiation efficiencies of ISL1+ CVP into various cardiac lineages. Flow cytometric analyses for EC (CD31+), SM (SMMHC+) and CM (CTNT+) differentiation were performed on two progenitor clones (clones 1 and 2). Bars, s.d. of n=3 experiments. *P<0.05 and **P<0.001, evaluated by Student's t-test. (c–e) Quantitative PCR confirming the expression of CD31 and VWF (EC markers); SM22 and SMMHC (SM markers); and NKX2.5, GATA4, MEF2C, TBX5, CX43 and TNNT2 (CM markers) when ISL1+ CVP clones were differentiated into the various cardiac lineages. Gene expressions were normalized to the respective undifferentiated ISL1+ CVP clones. n=3 experiments. *P<0.05 and **P<0.01, evaluated by Student's t-test.From: Soh BS, Ng SY, Wu H, Buac K, Park JH, Lian X, Xu J, Foo KS, Felldin U, He X, Nichane M, Yang H, Bu L, Li RA, Lim B, Chien KR.Endothelin-1 supports clonal derivation and expansion of cardiovascular progenitors derived from human embryonic stem cells.Nat Commun. 2016 Mar 8;7:10774.
  • IF - Anti-Human CD31 Antibody, clone WM59  ABD12105
    Published customer image:Mouse anti Human CD31 monoclonal antibody, clone WM59 used for the detection of CD31 expressing lung endothelium by immunofluorescenceImage caption:Figure 7. Apigenin reduces LPS-induced apoptosis in the lungs. Lungs from mice treated with LPS, control, apigenin or apigenin 3 h prior to LPS (Api + LPS) were obtained at 24 h. (A) The number of apoptotic cells was determined by the TUNEL assay and expressed as the mean ± SEM of the numbers of stained cells per 1000× microscopic field (N = 4 mice for each biological condition; * p < 0.01 vs. LPS), scale bars: 25 μm for all figures; (B,C) Caspase-3 activity was determined by the DEVD-AFC assay using lung lysates as described in materials and methods. Values represent the means ± SEM (N = 4 mice for each biological condition; * p < 0.05 vs. LPS); (D) Lung tissue immuno-histochemistry using antibodies specific for active caspase-3 in combination with anti-CD31, anti-cytokeratin or anti-7/4 antibodies specific for endothelia, epithelia and neutrophils, respectively.

Target/Specificity Mouse anti-Human CD31 monoclonal antibody, clone WM59 recognizes the human CD31 antigen, a ~130 kDa single pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein bearing six C2 immunoglobulin domains. CD31 is expressed by all continuous endothelia including arteries, veins and non-sinusoidal capillaries, platelets,granulocytes and some lymphocytes. CD31 is not expressed by discontinuous endothelia such as hepatic sinusoids and splenic red pulp (Mulleret al.1989).CD31 is also known as PECAM-1.The binding epitope for mouse anti-human CD31, clone WM59 has been mapped to the Ig-like domain 2 (Fawcettet al.1995).
