Hamster anti Mouse CD31 monoclonal antibody, clone 2H8 recognizes murine CD31, also known as Platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule or PECAM-1. CD31 is a ~130kDa single pass type-1 membrane glycoprotein bearing six C2 Ig-like domains, expressed on all continuous endothelium including arteries, veins and non-sinusoidal capillaries. CD31 is also expressed on all haemopoietic lineages with the exception of the erythroid line (Bogen et al. 1992) .

Hamster anti mouse CD31, clone 2H8 effectively inhibits transmigration of activated polymorphonuclear cells and monocytes across the endothelium. In a mouse model for acute peritonitis clone 2H8 blocks acute inflammation (Bogen et al. 1994). CD31 has also been shown to be critically involved in the sensing of changes in shear stress associated with atherosclerotic lesions and in the associated atherogenesis (Stevens et al. 2008).
