Detection of Mouse Podocalyxin by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of mouse kidney tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Mouse Podocalyxin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1556) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). A specific band was detected for Podocalyxin at approximately 130 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Podocalyxin in Mouse Thymus. Podocalyxin was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse thymus using Goat Anti-Mouse Podocalyxin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1556) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling when primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents. Specific staining was localized to high endothelial venules. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

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).
