CD90 (Anti-Mouse) (Stromal / Mesenchymal Marker) [IBL-6/23]



Recognizes a protein of 25kDa, identified as mouse Thy-1 (also known as CD90). It is a glycosyl phosphatidylinositol-anchored surface glycoprotein. CD90 is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. It may contribute to inhibition of proliferation/differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells and neuron memory formation in the CNS. It consists of a single Ig domain (112 amino acids; 25-35kDa) inserted into the cell membrane via a GPI anchor. Thy-1 is expressed mainly on brain and lymphoid tissues including thymocytes, Peripheral T-cells, and some intraepithelial T-lymphocytes. Thy-1 may play a role in T cell activation, development and function of nervous system, and apoptosis.
