CD44v5 antibody | VFF-8
CD44 isoforms containing one or more sequences encoded by the variant region exons have a much more restricted expression pattern both in terms of organ specificity and immune activation (Mackay et al. 1994). CD44 isoforms bearing the v5 exon product have been implicated in various neoplasms including breast cancer (Tempfer et al. 1996), renal cell carcinoma (Wu et al. 2003) and cervical cancer metastases (Kainz et al. 1996).
Mouse anti Human CD44v5 antibody has proved a useful reagent for the imunohistochemical or flow cytometric evaluation of CD44 variants containing the v5 exon product expression in normal and neoplastic cells (Ringel et al. 2001)
