The monoclonal antibody 174/2 reacts with human plasmalemma vesicle associated protein (PLVAP), also known as PV1, PAL-E and FELS. PLVAP is a 60 kDa type II transmembrane glycoprotein which tends to form homodimers. PLVAP is widely expressed in the vasculature of normal tissues. The vascular staining pattern of PLVAP is quite unique among the endothelial cell antigens, since expression of other antigens (like ICAM-1, P-selectin, E-selectin or VCAM-1) is not limited to vascular endothelial cells. PLVAP expression in the vascular endothelial cells of the CNS is lost in association with formation of an intact blood-brain barrier. However, in the endothelium of human brain tumors expression of PLVAP is specifically up-regulated, making it a suitable antiangiogenic target for brain tumor therapy and cerebral edema. Furthermore, PLVAP is expressed in the vasculature of most other human tumors and as such useful as marker for tumor angiogenesis.

  • New Human Complement Pathway Assays
    We are very proud of our newly developed human classical and alternative complement pathway assays. They are produced in response to a growing demand for quantitative investigation of complement inhibitors or regulators at lower sample dilutions. This development aims to address the issue of false negative results, enabling more accurate and reliable analysis of complement… Read more: New Human Complement Pathway Assays
  • Navigating the pitfalls in complement analysis
    Our colleague Erik Toonen shared his experience on how to analyze complement at the Complement-based Drug Development Summit in Boston in September 11-13th, 2023. He showed valuable insights on analyzing complements. For accurate complement analysis, it is important that not only the correct technique is used but also that pre-analytical sample handling is performed in… Read more: Navigating the pitfalls in complement analysis
  • NEW Human C3d ELISA
    We are happy to introduce our new ELISA (cat.# HK3017) designed to detect human C3d. What sets this assay apart is its utilization of a distinctive neo-epitope capture antibody that selectively targets a specific C3d region of the alpha chain, which is not available in other C3 variants. This way it specifically distinguishes C3d from native C3… Read more: NEW Human C3d ELISA
