Overview

The IM7 antibody reacts with CD44 (Ly-24), an ~80 - 95 kDa type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein involved in cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions. CD44 is expressed on the surface of many cells, including leukocytes and hepatocytes, as well as endothelial, epithelial, and mesenchymal cells. Expression levels increase upon activation of T and B cells, and memory cells exhibit a CD44high phenotype. CD44 binds many ligands, including hyaluronic acid, collagen, fibronectin, growth factors, and metalloproteinases, thus modulating processes such as lymphocyte activation, recirculation and homing, leukocyte rolling and aggregation, hematopoiesis, and tumor metastasis. Numerous disorders are associated with altered expression or dysfunction of CD44. Many CD44 isoforms have been identified, with alternative splicing, differential N- and O- glycosylation, and sulfation mediating the functional role(s) played by the protein in a specific cell. The IM7 monoclonal antibody reacts with an extracellular epitope found on all isoforms of CD44 and both murine allotypes.

Transmembrane Pickets Connect Cyto- and Pericellular Skeletons Forming Barriers to Receptor Engagement.

Freeman SA et al.

Abstract

Phagocytic receptors must diffuse laterally to become activated upon clustering by multivalent targets. Receptor diffusion, however, can be obstructed by transmembrane proteins (pickets") that are immobilized by interacting with the cortical cytoskeleton. The molecular identity of these pickets and their role in phagocytosis have not been defined. We used single-molecule tracking to study the interaction between Fcγ receptors and CD44 an abundant transmembrane protein capable of indirect association with F-actin hence likely to serve as a picket. CD44 tethers reversibly to formin-induced actin filaments curtailing receptor diffusion. Such linear filaments predominate in the trailing end of polarized macrophages where receptor mobility was minimal. Conversely receptors were most mobile at the leading edge where Arp2/3-driven actin branching predominates. CD44 binds hyaluronan anchoring a pericellular coat that also limits receptor displacement and obstructs access to phagocytic targets. Force must be applied to traverse the pericellular barrier enabling receptors to engage their targets.
