Mouse anti Human podoplanin antibody, clone 4D5aE5E6 recognizes human podoplanin also known as gp36, Aggrus, PA2.26 antigen or T1 alpha. Podoplanin is a 140 amino acid ~36 kDa single pass, type I cell membrane-associated glycoprotein, with a broad spectrum of distribution. Podoplanin is strongly expressed on the lymphatic endothelium found in lung, placenta and skeletal muscle and to a lesser extent in brain, kidney and liver.

Podoplanin is preferentially expressed on lymphatic and absent on blood endothelium (Breiteneder-Geleff et al. 1999) and therefore Mouse anti Human podoplanin antibody, clone 4D5aE5E6 is readily able to distinguish between lymphatic vessels and blood vasculature. Podoplanin is reported to be a reliable indicator of tumour lymphangiogenesis (Kitano et al. 2010).
