Mouse anti Human CD143 antibody, clone i1A8 recognizes human CD143, also known as angiotensin - converting enzyme (ACE). CD143 exists in two forms, a 170 kDa somatic form and a 90 kDa germinal form. The somatic form is expressed by endothelial cells (especially those of arterioles and lung capillaries), epithelial cells (especially in proximal renal tubules and in the small intestine), by some neuronal cells and variably on some macrophages and T lymphocytes. The germinal form is expressed by spermatozoa.
N.B. Antibody reactivity and working conditions may vary between species.
