General description

Monoclonal Anti-Podoplanin (rat IgG2a isotype) is derived from the hybridoma NZ-1.2 produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from CD rat immunized with platelet-aggregation-stimulating (PLAG) domain of podoplanin. Podoplanin (Aggrus) is an integral membrane mucoprotein present on the surface of podocytes in kidney glomeruli and the parietal cells of the glomerular Bowman′s capsule. It is a single membrane-spanning protein composed of a heavily glycosylated extracellular domain and a short intracytoplasmic tail. The extracellular domain possesses a platelet aggregation stimulating (PLAG) domain. Podoplanin has been described to be present in normal, inflammatory and neoplastic lymphatic capillary endothelium.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Expression of podoplanin is regulated by the lymphatic-specific homeobox gene Prox-1 (prospero-1). It is involved in lymphatic vessel formation and might be associated with tissue development and repair. Podoplanin is detected in human angiosarcomas, lymphangiomas, and in Kaposi′s sarcomas. It is implicated in the onset of tumor invasion, metastasis or malignant progression. Podoplanin plays an important role in the maintenance of podocyte foot processes and glomerular permeability.
