CD34 in Rat Liver. CD34 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of rat liver using 15 µg/mL Rat CD34 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4117) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Rat CD34 is a 80-100 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the CD34/Podocalyxin family of sialomucins. It is a widely used marker of activated hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells and is also expressed on adult vascular endothelial cells. Mature rat CD34 is predicted to be a 352 amino acid (aa) protein with a 257 aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 35-291) and 74 aa cytoplasmic tail (aa 313-386). Over the region used as immunogen, rat CD34 shares 83% and 57% aa identity with mouse and human CD34, respectively.
