Detection of CD43 in Human PBMCs by Flow Cytometry. Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were stained with Mouse Anti-Human CD3 epsilon APC‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB100A) and either (A) Mouse Anti-Human CD43 PE‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB2038P) or (B) Mouse IgG2B Phycoerythrin Isotype Control (Catalog # IC0041P).

CD43, also known as Leukosialin and Sialophorin and Ly-48 in mouse, is
a 100-105 kDa type I transmembrane sialylated mucin that is expressed on most
leukocytes and some tumor cells. Notably, the membrane expression of CD43 seems to be a characteristic of leukocytes, while cytoplasmic expression without membrane insertion occurs in endothelium and select epithelia. While CD43 restricts leukocyte adhesion and
modulates T cell activation, these activities are context specific. CD43 can both induce and protect against apoptosis, and can either promote or block cell adhesion. Mature CD43 shows 49% amino (aa) sequence identity between human and mouse.
