Podocalyxin in bEnd.3 Mouse Cell Line. Podocalyxin was detected in immersion fixed bEnd.3 mouse endothelioma cell line using 10 µg/mL Rat Anti-Mouse Podocalyxin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1556) for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL013) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Podocalyxin, also known as Podocalyxin-like protein-1 (PCLP1 or PODXL), is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein. It belongs to the CD34/Podocalyxin family of sialomucins that share structural similarity and sequence homology. Podocalyxin is a major sialoprotein in the podocytes of the kidney glomerulus and is also expressed by both endothelium and multipotent hematopoietic progenitors. It has been identified as a novel cell surface marker for hemangioblasts, the common precursors of hematopoietic and endothelial cells (1, 2).
