Anti-CD63 Monoclonal Antibody (Clone:MEM-259)-Biotin Conjugated
CD63 (LAMP-3, lysosome-associated membrane protein-3), a glycoprotein of tetraspanin family, is present in late endosomes, lysosomes and secretory vesicles of various cell types. It is also present in the plasma membrane, usually following cell activation. Hence, it has become an widely used basophil activation marker. In mast cells, however, CD63 exposition does not need their activation. CD63 interacts with integrins and affects phagocytosis and cell migration, it is also involved in H/K-ATPase trafficking regulation of ROMK1 channels. CD63 also serves as a T-cell costimulation molecule. Expression of CD63 can be used for predicting the prognosis in earlier stages of carcinomas.
|Storage condition :||Store at 2-8°C. Do not freeze.|
|Subcellular location:||Cell membrane, Lysosome membrane, Late endosome membrane, Endosome, Melanosome, Secreted, Cell surface|
|Post transnational modification:||Palmitoylated at a low, basal level in unstimulated platelets. The level of palmitoylation increases when platelets are activated by thrombin (in vitro).|
|Tissue Specificity:||Detected in platelets (at protein level). Dysplastic nevi, radial growth phase primary melanomas, hematopoietic cells, tissue macrophages.|
|BioGrid:||107405. 37 interactions.|
