CD15 antibodies

CD15 antibodies

Clone: VIMC6
VIMC6 recognizes the human 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.


Reagent can be used for immunophenotyping by flow cytometry. Abnormal numbers of cells expressing this antigen or aberrant expression levels of the antigen can be expected in some disease states. It is important to understand the normal expression pattern for this antigen and its relationship to expression of other relevant antigens in order to perform appropriate analysis.
Expression of CD15 may be used as aid to diagnostic in the characterization of samples from individuals suspected with hematologic neoplasia.
