ATP-binding cassette, sub-family B (MDR/TAP), member 5
ATP-Binding Cassette proteins comprise a superfamily of transporters with a wide variety of substrates. ABCB5 is a novel member of the human P-glycoprotein family. It functions as a determinant of membrane potential and regulator of cell fusion in physiologic skin progenitor cells. Cell fusion is thought to contribute to tissue differentiation. ABCB5 is predominantly expressed in melanoma cells and is a novel molecular marker for a distinct subset of chemoresistant stem cell phenotype-expressing tumor cells among human epidermal melanocytes. It has been identified as a novel drug transporter in human malignant melanoma. ABCB5 is a rhodamine efflux transporter. This antibody product is intended to be used to confirm cellular localization and expression level of ABCB5.

FAQs for ABCB5 Antibody (NBP1-50547). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQ).
I am writing in regards to your product 'ABCB5 Antibody (NBP1-50547)'. I am interested in performing FACS analysis with it. I would like to ask you, however, whether the epitope recognized by the antibody is located extracellularly. Or does the antibody recognize an epitope intracellularly and thus for FACS analysis cells should be first permeabilized?
The immunogen used to generate NBP1-50547 is located on the N-terminal which for ABCB5 is the extracellular domain.
