CD97 gene is a member of the EGF-TM7 family of class II seven-span transmembrane (7-TM) molecules, likely encoded by a gene cluster on the short arm of chromosome 19. The encoded product is a glycoprotein that is present on the surface of most activated leukocytes and spans the membrane seven times, which is a defining feature of G protein-coupled receptors. The protein has an extended extracellular region with several N-terminal epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like domains, which mediate binding to its cellular ligand, decay accelerating factor (DAF, CD55), a regulatory protein of the complement cascade. The presence of structural features characteristic of extracellular matrix proteins and transmembrane proteins suggests that this protein is a receptor involved in both cell adhesion and signaling processes early after leukocyte activation. Alternative splicing has been observed for this gene and three variants have been found.
Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry. Other applications not tested.
Flow Cytometry: Neat-1:10. Use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 10e6 cells or 100ul whole blood.
Optimal diliution to be determined by researcher.
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4 degrees C. For long-term storage, reconstitute, aliquot, and store at 4 degrees C. Do not freeze. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
Protect from light.
