DescriptionThe monoclonal antibody 50-6 recognizes human CD151 also known as PETA-3 (platelet-endothelial cell tetraspan antigen-3). CD151 has a molecular weight of 29kDa and like other tetraspanin family members, CD151 contains four hydrophobic transmembrane domains, two short cytoplasmic tails, and one small and one large extracellular loop. CD151 is expressed on platelets, megakaryocytes, endothelial cells, at the cell-cell junctions, as well as epithelial cells where it localizes to basolateral surfaces exposed to extracellular matrix. The tetraspanins play a role in cell adhesion and migration; CD151 interacts with integrinα3 β1 and integrinα6 β4. In particular CD151 forms a functional complex with c-Met and integrin α3 and α6 in human salivary gland cancer cells. Additionally it can interact with CD46. Together these interactions are thought to play a role during early metastasis as a potential positive effector.
The 50-6 monoclonal antibody inhibits in vivo metastasis of a human epidermal carcinoma cell line, HEp-3.
