This product recognizes CD44, a cell surface receptor for hyaluronic acid, although it can also interact with other ligands such as collagens and matrix metalloproteinases. It plays a role in a variety of cellular functions, such as adhesion, lymphocyte activation and lymph node homing. It is also involved in cell migration and plays a role in tumour metastasis. The protein has many distinct isoforms responsible for its functional diversity.
This antibody recognizes all isoforms of CD44 and has been reported to inhibit a delayed-type hypersensitivity response in vivo and to induce complement-mediated cytotoxicity.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
