Antigen Background

CD57/HNK-1 is expressed on a subpopulation of 15-20% of peripheral blood mononuclear cells, about 60% of NK active cells and on a subset of T cells.


Recognizes the CD57/HNK-1 human myeloid cell associated surface glycoprotein. The epitope recognized is an N-linked carbohydrate which is present in a variety of glycoproteins and in some glycolipids. It is resistant to formalin fixation and paraffin embedding. VC1.1 antibody and the HNK-1 (Leu7) antibody inhibit the binding of each other. The antibody recognizes myelin associated glycoprotein in some species and a high molecular weight chondroitin sulphate proteoglycan.
5th Workshop: code no. NK 67

Monoclonal Anti-HNK-1/N-CAM (CD57) antibody produced in mouse is suitable for western blotting with a dilution of 1:4,000 using freshly prepared extract from rat brain.

Biochem/physiol Actions

HNK1 (human natural killer-1) is referred as B3GAT1, NK1, CD57, LEU7, NK-1, GLCATP and GLCUATP. It is a member of the glucuronyltransferase gene family. Human natural killer-1 (HNK1) carbohydrate epitope is expressed on various cell adhesion molecules in the nervous system and plays a role in cell-cell and cell-substrate interactions. HNK-1 epitope stabilizes GluR2 on neuronal surface membranes and regulates cell surface stability of GluR2 by modulating the interaction with N-cadherin. It is also plays a role in cell migration and synaptic plasticity. HNK-1 epitope has been associated with the risk of metastasis. It is observed to be highly expressed in melanoma cell lines.
