Antibody Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow

The CD44 antibody, clone L178, is derived from hybridization of Sp2/0 myeloma mouse cells with spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with TCR-γ/δ+ thymocytes.

The CD44 (Leu-44) antibody recognizes a cell-surface glycoprotein that exists in a variety of isoforms. It is synthesized as a molecule with a molecular weight of 37 kilodaltons (kDa). Upon glycosylation, it is converted to an 80- to 95-kDa form. Alternatively, a 180- to 200-kDa form results from the addition of chondroitin sulfate.

Fluorescein (FITC) is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 518-nm. FITC is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520 nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
