|Detection of 5'‑Nucleotidase/CD73 in Mouse Splenocytes by Flow Cytometry. Mouse splenocytes were stained with Rat Anti-Mouse CD3 APC‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB4841A) and either (A) Rat Anti-Mouse 5'‑Nucleotidase/CD73 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4488) or (B) Rat IgG2A Isotype Control (Catalog # MAB006) followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG F(ab')2 Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0105B).

CD73, an ecto-5’-Nucleotidase, is an ectoenzyme that is attached to the cell membrane by a glycosyl phophatidylinositol anchor (1, 2). The enzyme is expressed by most cell types. The 5’-Nucleotidase activity of CD73 converts extracellular nucleoside-5’-monophosphates to nucleosides. CD73 is one of several enzymes responsible for the production of extracellular adenosine, a signaling molecule that is involved in responses to inflammation and tissue injury (3).
