CD133 (A8N6N) Mouse mAb (Flow Specific) recognizes endogenous levels of total CD133 protein.
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with cells overexpressing human CD133 protein.
CD133, also known as Prominin, was first described as a cell surface marker recognized by monoclonal antibody AC133 on putative hematopoietic stem cells (1). Subsequent cDNA cloning indicated that CD133 is a five-transmembrane protein with a predicated molecular weight of 97 kDa. Due to heavy glycosylation, its apparent molecular weight is 130 kDa as determined by SDS-PAGE analysis (2). Besides blood stem cells, CD133 is expressed on and used to isolate other stem cells, including cancer stem cells (3-7). A deletion mutation in CD133 produces aberrant protein localization and may result in retinal degeneration in humans (8).
