Mouse anti Bovine CD44 antibody, clone IL-A118 recognizes bocine Phagocytic Glycoprotein-1 (PGP-1), also known as CD44, Hermes antigen, Extracellular matrix receptor III or HUTCH-1. Bovine CD44 is a 346 amino acid ~90 kDa type I single pass transmembrane glycoprotein containing a single Link domain, responsible for hyaluronan binding. Bovine CD44 is expressed by a wide range of bovine cells, including peripheral T and B lymphocytes, monocytes, granulocytes, platelets and early erythroid cells.
