|The CD146 mcam (Catalog #MBS215541) is an Antibody produced from Mouse and is intended for research purposes only. The product is available for immediate purchase. MyBioSource\'s CD146 can be used in a range of immunoassay formats including, but not limited to, Flow cytometry (FC/FACS).
Flow Cytometry: Use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 106 cells in 100ul.
Flow Cytometry: Minimum Dilution: Neat; Maximum Dilution: 1/10. Researchers should empirically determine the suitability of the CD146 mcam for an application not listed in the data sheet. Researchers commonly develop new applications and it is an integral, important part of the investigative research process.
The CD146 mcam product has the following accession number(s) (GI #71274107) (NCBI Accession #NP_006491.2) (Uniprot Accession #P43121). Researchers may be interested in using Bioinformatics databases such as those available at The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) website for more information about accession numbers and the proteins they represent. Even researchers unfamiliar with bioinformatics databases will find the NCBI databases to be quite user friendly and useful.

Please refer to the product datasheet for known applications of a given antibody. We\'ve tested the MOUSE ANTI HUMAN CD146:FITC with the following immunoassay(s):
Testing Data (Published customer image; Conjugated and unconjugated anti-CD326, anti-CD146 and anti-CD104 were analysed by flow cytometry for binding to CORL23 and LoVo cells [black line, negative control; blue line, unconjugated antibody; red line, immunoconjugates with porphyrin 1 (a) or porphyrin 2 (b)].From: Smith K, Malatesti N, Cauchon N, Hunting D, Lecomte R, van Lier JE, Greenman J, Boyle RW. Mono- and tri-cationic porphyrin-monoclonal antibody conjugates: photodynamic activity and mechanism of action. Immunology. 2011 Feb;132(2):256-65.)
Testing Data (Published customer image: Brain-derived cell lines express markers for mesenchymal stem cells and pericytes but not for glial or neuronal precursors. (A) Representative histogram of flow cytometry analysis of cortical line and (B) ventricular zone line. Progenitors from all donors and both regions highly express MSC (CD90, CD73, CD105, CD29, CD166 and CD49d) and pericyte markers (CD140b/PDGFR-beta, RGS5, CD146, Nestin, a-SMA and NG2). They do not express hematopoietic (CD45), endothelial (CD31, CD34), microglial (CD14, CD11), glial or neuronal precursor cell markers (GFAP, O4) or myofibroblast markers (CD56), (green = isotype, red = respective marker).From: Paul G, Özen I, Christophersen NS, Reinbothe T, Bengzon J, et al.

Mouse anti Human CD146 antibody, clone OJ79c recognizes human Cell surface glycoprotein MUC18, also known as CD146, Cell surface glycoprotein P1H12, Melanoma cell adhesion molecule or S-endo 1 endothelial-associated antigen. CD146 is a 646 amino acid single pass type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein with a calculated molecular mass of ~72 kDa. However due to extensive N-linked glycosylation CD146 migrates in polyacrylamide gels with an apparent molecular mass of ~:118 kDa. CD146 is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily bearing 2 V-type Ig-like and 3 C-type Ig-like domains. CD146 is expressed by all endothelial cells and by melanoma cells and appears to act as an adhesion molecule (UniProt: P43121). Expression in melanoma may be linked to tumor progression (Lehmann et al. 1989). Mouse anti Human CD146 antibody, clone OJ79c is highly expressed on pericytes and has been utilized for the identification of perivascular mesenchymal precursor cells from cardiac muscle using flow cytometry (Chen et al. 2014).
