Mouse anti Pig CD31 antibody, clone LCI-9 recognizes porcine Platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule, also known as CD31 or PECAM-1. Porcine CD31 is a 740 amino acid ~140 kDa single pass type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein bearing six Ig-like C2-type domains. CD31 is expressed by various cell types, but particularly by endothelial cells where it is required for leukocyte transendothelial migration (UniProt:Q95242).

Mouse anti Pig CD31 antibody, clone LCI-9 has been used successfully for recognition of porcine CD31 by flow cytometry (Peterson et al. 2005) and immunofluorescence microscopy (Nasu et al. 1999).
