|Summary and Explanation
|CD13 (also known as aminopeptidase-N) is expressed on the majority of peripheral blood monocytes and granulocytes. It is also expressed by the majority of acute myeloid leukemias, chronic myeloid leukemias in myeloid blast crisis, a smaller percentage of lymphoid leukemias and myeloid cell lines. CD13 is absent from normal lymphocytes, platelets and erythrocytes. CD13 is also present on fibroblasts, endothelial cells, epithelial cells from renal proximal tubules and intestinal brush border, bone marrow stromal cells, osteo-clasts, and cells forming bile canaliculi. Anti-Human CD13 recognizes the human CD13 antigen expressed on the majority of peripheral blood monocytes and granulocytes and on endothelial cells. CD13 plays a role in biologically active peptide metabolism, in the control of growth and diff erentiation, in phagocytosis and in bactericidal/tumoricidal activities. CD13 also serves as a receptor for human coronaviruses (HCV)

|CD13 is a mouse monoclonal antibody derived from cell culture supernatant that is concentrated, dialyzed, filter sterilized and diluted in buffer pH 7.5, containing BSA and sodium azide as a preservative.
|Note: For concentrated antibodies, please centrifuge prior to use to ensure recovery of all product.
