Description: This FLEG monoclonal antibody recognizes human CD162, which is also known as P-selectin glyocoprotein ligand-1 (PSGL-1). This 120-kDa protein exists as a homodimer on the surface of monocytes, neutrophils, granulocytes, peripheral T cells, some B cells, and a subset of CD34+ hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs) in the bone marrow. CD162 binds CD62P (P-selectin), CD62E (E-selectin), and CD62L (L-selectin) to mediate leukocyte interactions with each other as well as with activated platelets and endothelium. Thus, CD162 plays a critical role in leukocyte adhesion and rolling. Furthermore, the binding of CD162 to P-selectin on HPCs has been demonstrated to inhibit hematopoiesis. Studies have also demonstrated CD162 as the receptor for enterovirus 71. Applications Reported: This FLEG antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This FLEG antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.125 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.SELPLG is the high affinity counter-receptor for P-selectin on myeloid cells and stimulated T lymphocytes. As such, it plays a critical role in the tethering of these cells to activated platelets or endothelia expressing P-selectin. The organization of the SELPG gene closely resembles that of CD43 and the human platelet glycoprotein GpIb-alpha both of which have an intron in the 5-prime-noncoding region, a long second exon containing the complete coding region, and TATA-less promoters.
