Detection of CD164 in CXCL12-treated PC‑3 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. CXCL12-treated PC‑3 human prostate cancer cell line was stained with Mouse Anti-Human CD164 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5790, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB007, open histogram), followed by APC-conjugated anti-mouse antibody (Catalog # F0101B).

CD164, also known as endolyn, MGC-24, and MUC-24, is an 80‑100 kDa transmembrane sialomucin protein that is expressed by epithelial cells, T and B cells, monocytes, hematopoietic progenitor cells, and activated basophils. CD164 functions as an adhesion molecule and a negative regulator of cell proliferation. A soluble isoform is generated by alternate splicing. CD164 was identified as a potential regulator of homing in a prostate cancer screening for CXCL12-responsive adhesion molecules (1). Within the ECD, human CD164 shares approximately 53% sequence identity with mouse and rat CD164.
