CD15 antibodies, human

CD15 antibodies, human

Clone: VIMC6 | Dilution: 1:11
The CD15 antibody recognizes the CD15 antigen which is expressed on human myelomonocytic cells. It is present on neutrophils, eosinophils, and some monocytes, but not on basophils or lymphocytes. The antigen is also expressed on Hodgkin/Reed-Sternberg cells.
The CD15 antibody recognizes the carbohydrate structure 3-fucosyl-N-acetyl-lactosamine. This structure is also known as stage specific embryonic antigen 1 (SSEA-1) and a common surface marker for pluripotency on mouse ES and iPS cells. On human cells in contrast, SSEA-1 is expressed only on early differentiating cells. The CD15 antibody recognizes the SSEA-1 antigen in both species. For applications in ES and iPS research, the dilution recommended in the data sheet may need adjustment.
