CD99 - Mouse Monoclonal JCB117BSB 5309-BSB 5315
CD99, also known as MIC-2 or single-chain Type-1 glycoprotein, is a human protein encoded by the CD99 gene. The protein has a MW of 32 kD. It is expressed on all leukocytes but highest on thymocytes, and is believed to augment T-cell adhesion and apoptosis of double-positive T-cells. It also participates in migration and activation. The CD99 antigen is found on the cell membrane of Ewing’s Sarcoma and Primitive Peripheral Neuroectodermal Tumors (PNET). It is also present on a variety of other cell types including bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen, cortical thymocytes, granulosa cells of the ovary, beta cells, CNS ependymal cells, Sertoli’s cells of the testis and a few endothelial cells. Mature granulocytes, however, tend to express very little or no CD99. MIC-2 has also been identified in Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, Rhabdomyosarcoma, Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma, and Thymoma.
Available options include prediluted (3ml, 7 ml, 15ml), concentrate (0.1 ml, 0.5ml, 1ml) and 5+ control slides.
