|Rat anti Mouse PLVAP antibody, clone MECA-32 recognizes murine plasmalemma vesicle-associated protein (PLVAP), a ~60 kDa protein also known as MECA-32 and PV-1. PLVAP is a transmembrane homodimer associated with endothelial cell caveolae and fenestrae. In adult and embryonic mice, PLVAP is primarily expressed on endothelial tissues but shows restricted distribution in skeletal, cardiac and brain tissues. In embryonic mice, PLVAP expression, on the vasculature associated with blood brain barrier has been reported to be developmentally regulated.
In humans, PLVAP is selectively up-regulated in a variety of high-grade brain tumors, including glioblastoma and metastatic carcinoma, as well as other cerebral disorders associated with blood-brain barrier disruption, such as acute ischemia. PLVAP represents a novel marker of brain tumour angiogenesis and integrity of the blood-brain barrier and is a potential therapeutic target.
