Mouse anti Human CD65s antibody, clone VIM-2
selectively recognizes the sialylated form of human CD65, known as CD65s (VIM-2 antigen), a leucocyte carbohydrate antigen expressed by granulocytes, monocytes and leukaemic cells of myelomonocytic lineage.
CD65s is aberrantly expressed on some acute myeloid leukaemias (AML) and clone VIM-2 has been reliably used as a marker for distinguishing between mature and undifferentiated AML. During normal myelopoiesis, expression of CD65s follows the disappearance of the progenitor antigen CD34.
Cross-linking of the CD65s antigen using clone VIM-2, has been shown to induce phagocyte cytoplasmic calcium flux, oxidative burst and degranulation (Lund-Johansen et al. 1992
