In a functional ELISA, 0.5-2.5 µg/mL of this antibody will block 50% of the binding of 1 µg/mL of Recombinant Mouse CD97 Variant 2 (Catalog # 5494-CD) to immobilized Recombinant Mouse CD55/DAF (Catalog # 5490-CD) coated at 0.5 µg/mL (100 µL/well). At 5 µg/mL, this antibody will block >90% of the binding.
Ready to be labeled using established conjugation methods. No BSA or other carrier proteins that could interfere with conjugation.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application.

CD97 is an approximately 100 kDa N-glycosylated member of the LNB-TM7 family of G protein-coupled proteins. It contains a 510 amino acid (aa) N-terminal extracellular region with four EGF-like domains and a juxtamembrane GPS motif which enables proteolytic shedding of the N-terminal extracellular domain. The alternately spliced variant 2 of CD97 exhibits a 94 aa deletion that results in loss of the third EGF-like repeat. CD97 is expressed on monocytes, macrophages, T cells, B cell subsets, dendritic cells, hematopoietic progenitor cells, and smooth muscle cells. It binds CD55/DAF, chondroitin sulfate, and Integrin although interaction with these molecules can vary between splice forms of CD97. CD97 participates in neutrophil migration, host defense, and angiogenesis. Within aa 24-384, mouse CD97 variant 2 shares 51% aa and 76% aa sequence identity with corresponding regions of human and rat CD97, respectively.
