The clone 50-6, a mouse monoclonal antibody selectively binds with a ~ 29kD cell surface protein known as CD151. It is also known as the Platelet-Endothelial Tetraspan Antigen 3 (PETA-3) and it is a member of the tetraspanin family (TM4SF). CD151 is expressed by many different cell types including immature hematopoietic cells, megakaryocytes, platelets, keratinocytes, epithelial cells, muscle cells, Schwann cells, vascular endothelium, etc. CD151 plays important role in the process of cell adhesion, migration, and tumor cell metastasis.
