Overview

The HCD56 antibody reacts with CD56 (NCAM), a member of the immunoglobulin (Ig) super family containing 5 Ig-like domains and two fibronectin type-3 domains in its extracellular portion. Multiple isoforms have been identified, including transmembrane and GPI-anchored forms. CD56 is subject to several types of post-translational modification, including addition of a polysialic acid moiety to the 5th Ig-like domain. The ~140 kDa isoform of CD56 is considered the prototypic cell surface marker on human NK cells. Around 90% of the NK cells express CD56 at low density while ~10% express the protein at relatively high levels. CD56 is also variably expressed by a subset of NK-T cells in peripheral blood, neurons, muscle cells, some stem cells, and in vitro-cultured T cell clones. It is also expressed by several types of tumors, including myeloma, neuroblastoma and small cell lung carcinoma cells. CD56 mediates cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesion via homophilic and heterophilic interactions, respectively, and has been implicated in activating intracellular signaling pathways. CD56 plays important roles in neuronal development both during embryogenesis and in adults.
