Anti-CD34 (Endothelial Cell)


CD34 is a cell-surface glycoprotein, it functions as a cell-cell adhesion factor. It may also mediate the attachment of stem cells to bone marrow extracellular matrixes or directly to stromal cells. CD34 positive cells are more commonly found in the umbilical cord and bone marrow as hematopoletic cells, and in vascular endothelium. In addition to stem cell recognition, CD34 is expressed by vascular endothelium; it appears that proliferating endothelial cells express this molecule in greater amounts than resting cells. In comparison to factor VIII R Antigen, CD34 is an important marker for quantifying and purifying hematopoietic progenitor/stem cells. It is useful in identification of tumors with endothelial or lymphoid differentiation. In addition, CD34 aids in detection of gastrointestinal stromal tumors
