Target

  • Function
    May play a role in cell differentiation, proliferation and apoptosis (PubMed:24556617). Binds cholesterol in cholesterol-containing plasma membrane microdomains and may play a role in the organization of the apical plasma membrane in epithelial cells. During early retinal development acts as a key regulator of disk morphogenesis. Involved in regulation of MAPK and Akt signaling pathways. In neuroblastoma cells suppresses cell differentiation such as neurite outgrowth in a RET-dependent manner (PubMed:20818439).
  • Tissue specificity
    Isoform 1 is selectively expressed on CD34 hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells in adult and fetal bone marrow, fetal liver, cord blood and adult peripheral blood. Isoform 1 is not detected on other blood cells. Isoform 1 is also expressed in a number of non-lymphoid tissues including retina, pancreas, placenta, kidney, liver, lung, brain and heart. Found in saliva within small membrane particles. Isoform 2 is predominantly expressed in fetal liver, skeletal muscle, kidney, and heart as well as adult pancreas, kidney, liver, lung, and placenta. Isoform 2 is highly expressed in fetal liver, low in bone marrow, and barely detectable in peripheral blood. Isoform 2 is expressed on hematopoietic stem cells and in epidermal basal cells (at protein level). Expressed in adult retina by rod and cone photoreceptor cells (at protein level).
  • Involvement in disease
    Retinitis pigmentosa 41
    Cone-rod dystrophy 12
    Stargardt disease 4
    Retinal macular dystrophy 2
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the prominin family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are glycosylated.
    Acetylation at Lys-225, Lys-257 and Lys-264 by NAT8 and NAT8B may control PROM1 protein expression and its function in cell apoptosis.
  • Cellular localization
    Apical cell membrane. Cell projection, microvillus membrane. Cell projection, cilium, photoreceptor outer segment. Endoplasmic reticulum. Endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment. Found in extracellular membrane particles in various body fluids such as cerebrospinal fluid, saliva, seminal fluid and urine.

  • Predicted band size : 97 kDa
    ab16518 recognizes 97 kDa human CD133 in Y79 cells. Band is at ~120 kDa due to protein glycosylation. ab16518 recognizes 97 kDa human CD133 in Y79 cells. Band is at ~120 kDa due to protein glycosylation.
  • IF staining for nestin and CD133 using CD133 antibody (ab16518) in primary human kidney cells isolated from the loop of Henle of human kidney papilla. The cells were fixed with 3% paraformaldehyde for 20 min at room temperature. CD133 is red (c), nestin is green (b) and blue channel is beta-catenin used as a cell membrane outline (a). Image d shows the merged image of all three. CD133 antibody (ab16518) at a dilution of 1:100.

  • IF staining of CD133 in cultured primary human kidney cells isolated from the human papilla. The cells were fixed with 3% paraformaldehyde for 20 min at RT. CD133 antibody (ab16518) was used at dilution of 1:100.

    Secondary
    Goat anti-rabbit at 1/5000 dilution

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 97 kDa
    Observed band size : 120,130 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 30 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
  • ab16518 staining CD133 in human hepatocarcinoma (HC) tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). ab16518 was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by AEC staining.
  • ab16518 staining CD133 in Bone Marrow Mononuclear Cells by Immunofluorescence
  • ab16518 staining CD133 in Mouse pancreatic neoplasia tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-Fr - frozen sections). Tissue was fixed with acetone/methanol (1:1) and blocked with 10% serum for 1 hour. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100) for 8 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor®555-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.
