The epitope recognized by this antibody is sensitive to bromelain and other proteolytic enzymes. It is detectable in routine formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue. The antibody is also reactive with bone marrow nucleated cells, medullary thymocytes, liver Kupffer cells, fibroblasts, corneal cells, epidermal keratinocytes, synovial cells, a subset of pancreatic acinar cells and brain cells.Use in Western blot reported in scientific literature (PMID: 29111978).

CD44 is a type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein also known as Phagocytic Glycoprotein 1 (pgp 1) and HCAM. CD44 is the receptor for hyaluronate and exists as a large number of different isoforms due to alternative RNA splicing. The major isoform expressed on lymphocytes, myeloid cells, and erythrocytes is a glycosylated type 1 transmembrane protein. Other isoforms contain glycosaminoglycans and are expressed on hematopoietic and non hematopoietic cells. CD44 is involved in adhesion of leukocytes to endothelial cells, stromal cells, and the extracellular matrix.
