Target

  • Function
    Plays a role in cell adhesion, and in cohesion of the endothelial monolayer at intercellular junctions in vascular tissue. Its expression may allow melanoma cells to interact with cellular elements of the vascular system, thereby enhancing hematogeneous tumor spread. Could be an adhesion molecule active in neural crest cells during embryonic development. Acts as surface receptor that triggers tyrosine phosphorylation of FYN and PTK2, and a transient increase in the intracellular calcium concentration.
  • Tissue specificity
    Detected in endothelial cells in vascular tissue throughout the body. May appear at the surface of neural crest cells during their embryonic migration. Appears to be limited to vascular smooth muscle in normal adult tissues. Associated with tumor progression and the development of metastasis in human malignant melanoma. Expressed most strongly on metastatic lesions and advanced primary tumors and is only rarely detected in benign melanocytic nevi and thin primary melanomas with a low probability of metastasis.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 3 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
    Contains 2 Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.

Question
Answer

I now have some further information to share with you in regards to the likelihood of ab28364 and ab75769 detecting the canine protein.


Based on sequence analysis, theab75769 is not expected to cross react with canine protein (SwissProt reference F1P894)as there is onylthere is only 30% similarity between the immunogen used to raise the antibody and the canine protein. A similar result was found with ab28364 where only a 55% homology was found (with SwissProt reference E2R6C1).


However, we have not tested either of these antibodies with canine samples and as the SwissProt references I found have not been classified as validated, I would not like to say for definite either way whether the antibodies will detect the protein in canine samples or not. I would say as you have the antibodies in house, I would try them with your canine samples to see what this yields.You may however need to find alternative antibodies to use.


I hope this information has been of help. If I can help in any other way, please donot hesitate to contact me again.

Question
Answer

Thank you for contacting us yesterday.

I have been looking into your query into if anti-CD31 (ab28364) and anti-CD146 antibody (ab75769) are likely to be able to detect the canine proteins. Let me first just say that it seems that the sequences of the canine proteins do not seem very well characterised to this point (none of the SwissProt references for the canine sequences mentioned in this email have been fully characterised). It is therefore difficult to draw strong conclusions on if the antibodies are likely to cross react or not.

The anti-CD31 you are using is raised against a peptide taken from the C-terminal end of the mouseCD31 protein. Through performing a sequence comparison of this sequence(SwissProt reference http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/Q08481) to that of the canine protein (SwissProt reference http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/E2R6C1), it only shares 76% homology overall and the regions of matching residues in the C-terminal is quite patchy. I am checking further to see exactly where the immunogen used with this antibody binds and will let you know as soon as I have this information.

If you find thatab28364 is not working in your staining of canine samples, unfortunately, we do not currently haveany anti-CD31 antibodieswhich have beenused with canine samples. Asthecanine proteinsequence has a higherhomology with thehuman protein (SwissProt reference http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/P16284)than the mouse proteinIwould suggest testing an antibodyraised against thehuman protein would be more likely to be successful. If you would like me to go through the antibodies we have raised against the human protein to find the most appropriate one to try please do let me know.

The anti-CD146 (ab75769), looks somewhat more promising. The human sequence (SwissProt reference http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/P43121, from which the immunogen is taken from), shares 87 % homology with the canine protein (SwissProt reference http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/F1P894). However, the immunogen is taken from the intracellular domain (residues 584-646) and the canine protein, from this sequence at least, only goes up to 581 residues. I am again checking further to see what the exact immunogen used is and will let you know as soon as I have this information.

As discussed over the phone, if you find that ab75769 is not performing well with your canine samples, we do have a mouse monoclonalantibody, https://www.abcam.com/CD146-antibody-P1H12-ab24577.htmlwhich has been validated in dog. This antibody has however not been used with PFA fixed, paraffin embedded sections as yet. The same clone [P1H12] conjugated to biotin (https://www.abcam.com/CD146-antibody-P1H12-Biotin-ab77928.html)has however been used for this application so the likelyhood is that itwould work.If you would like to try ab24577 in IHC-P you would be eligible for a testing discount. This is a scheme which we run to gather more data about our antibodies by our customer.

This would involve you purchasing ab24577, testing it in IHC-P with you canine (or human samples) and letting us know of the results through an Abreview. This should only take 5-10 minutes.Whether the results are positive or negative, you would then be rewarded with a free primary antibody of your choice from our catalogue.The only constraint is that the antibody to be tested needs to be purchased and the Abreview submitted and the "free" antibody claimed within 4 months. More information on this scheme can be found from the following link:

https://www.abcam.com/collaboratordiscount

As requested I have also had a look into if we have any antibodies which would be suitable for use in detecting CD34 in your canine samples. We havea mouse monoclonalantibody which have been used with canine samples previously, https://www.abcam.com/CD34-antibody-1H6-ab35036.html. However, this antibody has as yet only been characterisedwith western blotting and flow cytometry. If you would be interested you would therefore again be eligible for a testing discount if youwere to purchase this and test it in IHC staining of paraffin embedded sections.

If you would be interested in this testing discount scheme, please do let me know as a discount code needs to be issued prior to purchasing the antibody to be tested.

I thought you might like some more information on the Abreview system as well. We encourage all our customers to review their experiences with our antibodies so that other customers can evaluate which antibodies would be best for them to use. As a reward for submitting reviews you earn Abpoints. These can be redeemed against future purchases, or exchanged for Amazon vouchers. More information on how the system works can be found from the following link:

https://www.abcam.com/abreviews

I hope this information has been of help. I will let you know as soon as I have further information to share on the immunogens used to raise ab28364 and ab75769.

Answer

Thank you for contacting us.

Unfortunately we have not tested any of the anti-CD146 antibodies in pig species, therefore we cannot predict their cross reactivity with this species.

For antibody ab78488 we have not done any epitope mapping, and so we cannot make any guess as to whether the region that the antibody binds to will share homology with the pig protein.

For antibody ab75769, the peptide maps between amino acids XXXX - XXXX of human CD146, near the C-terminus (UniProt: P43121). I was not able to find the pig protein sequence to run a BLAST and check the alignment.

This is all the information available, I am sorry I could not be more helpful. For further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Answer

Thank you for contact Abcam. The expected size for this target, the L isoform, is 72kDa (Swiss Prot: http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/Q8R2Y2). Other customers have reported band of this size using this product. There seems to be some confusion as to the MUC18 as I have seen this protein reported at 113kDa (PMID: 21467165) and have seen other products give a band around this size. I can only assume that the larger band may be the modified form of CD146. I would like to help you with this product if I can. Would you be able to supply me with the western blotting protocol that you used? Please include lysis buffer, denaturing steps, blocking solution as well as the times, temperature of blocking and antibody incubations. Thank you. Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to your reply.

Answer

Thank you for contacting us. I believe that the information presented on the datasheet if from the predicted molecular weight information available at Swiss Prot. I've attached a link to that data below: http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/P43121#P43121 However, I have found as data, which will be on our datasheet soon, which shows the product giving the more accepted and expected results. I will attach this data for you. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Answer

Thank you for contacting us. Please find attached the datasheet and our immunohistochemistry protocols with detailed information on the antigen retrieval method. We highly recommend to perform the antigen retrieval via the pressure cooker method as stated on the datasheet. Although you may observe that other antigen retrieval methods could also work in your hands, we have tested this CD146-antibody with the pressure cooker method and determined that is works. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
