The monoclonal antibody VM58 is directed against the CD36 antigen, a 90kD glycoprotein, also called GP IIIb expressed on human platelets. The GP IV (GP IIIb) molecule has been shown to function as thrombospondin receptor on platelets and monocytes and as receptor for Plasmodium falciparum infected erythrocytes. The monoclonal antibody reacts with platelets, monocytes, macrophages, erythroblasts and (weakly) with B-cells. In immunohistology the monoclonal antibody reacts with some endothelial cells, adipocytes and the granular layer of the skin. The antibody VM58 induces Fc-receptor-dependent platelet aggregation after binding to platelet. The heterogeneity of the response found in healthy individuals is dependent on the polymorphism of the Fc RII on platelets.

The protein encoded by this gene is the fourth major glycoprotein of the platelet surface and serves as a receptor for thrombospondin in platelets and various cell lines. Since thrombospondins are widely distributed proteins involved in a variety of adhesive processes, this protein may have important functions as a cell adhesion molecule. It binds to collagen, thrombospondin, anionic phospholipids and oxidized LDL. It directly mediates cytoadherence of Plasmodium falciparum parasitized erythrocytes and it binds long chain fatty acids and may function in the transport and/or as a regulator of fatty acid transport. Mutations in this gene cause platelet glycoprotein deficiency. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2014]
