CD34 is a 100-105 kDa member of the CD34/podocalyxin family of molecules. It is a sialomucin type glycoprotein, and presents carbohydrate to selectins during cell migration. CD34 is found on mast cells, eosinophils, vascular endothelial cells, CD34+ stem cells and renal mesangial cells. Mature mouse CD34 is a 348 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane protein (aa 35-382). It contains a 253 aa extracellular region (aa 35-287), and a 74 aa cytoplasmic domain that undergoes Tyr phosphorylation. There is one 90 kDa splice variant that shows a four aa substitution for aa 322-382. Mouse CD34 also is likely to undergo membrane cleavage that will generate a 54 kDa soluble form. Over aa 35-287, mouse CD34 shares 57% and 82% aa identity with human and rat CD34, respectively.
