*Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the researcher.
Use 10μl of the suggested working dilution to label 106 cells in 100μl.

This antibody recognizes an epitope on human CD44 outside the regions coded for by the variable region exons and is thus expected to recognize all isoforms of human CD44 (Mackay et al. 1994).

The protein encoded by this gene is a cell-surface glycoprotein involved in cell-cell interactions, cell adhesion and migration. It is a receptor for hyaluronic acid (HA) and can also interact with other ligands, such as osteopontin, collagens, and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). This protein participates in a wide variety of cellular functions including lymphocyte activation, recirculation and homing, hematopoiesis, and tumor metastasis. Transcripts for this gene undergo complex alternative splicing that results in many functionally distinct isoforms, however, the full length nature of some of these variants has not been determined. Alternative splicing is the basis for the structural and functional diversity of this protein, and may be related to tumor metastasis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
