Detection of Human CD157 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human kidney (cortex) tissue. PVDF Membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human CD157 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4736) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for CD157 at approximately 45 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

CD157, also known as bone marrow stromal cell antigen 1 (BST-1), is a glycosyl phosphatidylinositol anchored membrane protein that belongs to the CD38 family (1). CD157 was discovered in a bone marrow stromal cell line where it facilitates pre-B-cell growth (2, 3). Along with CD38, CD157 is a bifunctional ectoenzyme that exhibits both ADP-ribosyl cyclase and cyclic ADP ribose hydrolase activities (2). It may play a role in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) due to its enhanced expression in RA‑derived bone marrow stromal cell lines (3). CD157 has been predicted to function as a cell surface receptor and an immunoregulatory molecule (4).
