CD44 is a receptor for hyaluronic acid (HA) and is involved in cell-cell interactions, cell adhesion and migration. CD44 also participates in a wide variety of cellular functions including lymphocyte activation, recirculation and homing. CD44 expression may be up-regulated upon some carcinomas, and it has been speculated that this may be related to metastatic potential (Hofmann et al. 1991).
Mouse anti Human CD44 antibody recognizes the standard CD44 isoform lacking any of the variable region exon products as a ~82 kDa band in HeLa cell line lysates by western blotting under reducing conditions. In addition, Mouse anti Human CD44 antibody will recognize all higher molecular weight forms of CD44 containing one or more of the variable region exon products.
