Mouse anti Human CD6 antibody, clone MEM-98 recognizes human CD6, also known as T12 or TP120. CD6 is a ~100-130 kDa type 1 single pass trans-membrane protein member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD6 possesses 3 scavenger receptor cysteine rich (SRCR) domains in it’s extracellular sequence. The membrane proximal SRCR3 contains the epitope responsible for interaction with CD166, also known as Activated Leukocyte Cell Adhesion Molecule (ALCAM) or CD166.

Multiple gene transcripts have been detected encoding CD6 in man resulting in the production of a number of CD6 isoforms. Mouse anti human CD6, clone MEM-98 recognizes an external epitope located in the membrane-distal SRCR domain 1 and is expected to recognize all CD6 isoforms so far identified, CD6A-E.

CD6 has been implicated as a therapeutic target for a number of autoimmune conditions (Pinto et al. 2013) including Sjögren's syndrome (Ramos-Casals et al. 2001) , rheumatoid arthritis (Rodriguez et al.) and psoriasis (Wilsmann-Theis et al. 2006).
