Specificity & Comments
Recognizes a sialoglycoprotein of 27-32kDa, identified as CD99, or MIC2 gene product, or E2 antigen. This antigen is expressed on the cell membrane of some lymphocytes, cortical thymocytes, and granulosa cells of the ovary. Most pancreatic islet cells, Sertoli cells of the testis, and some endothelial cells express this antigen. Mature granulocytes express very little or no CD99. MIC2 is strongly expressed on Ewing's sarcoma cells and primitive peripheral neuroectodermal tumors. This MAb shows a very similar reactivity to other CD99 MAbs (e.g. O13, 12E7, or HBA-71) and is excellent for immunohistochemical staining of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues.
