FC - Quality tested
IHC - Reported in the literature

Application Notes:

The HECA-452 antibody cross-reacts with mouse skin homing lymphocytes4. Treatment of activated HUVEC cells with HECA-452 antibody inhibits lymphocyte adhesion. Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: blocking of lymphocyte binding to E-selectin3, and immunohistochemistry1,2 of acetone-fixed frozen sections and formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sections.

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤2.0 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Human peripheral blood lymphocytes were

Human peripheral blood lymphocytes were stained with purified CLA (clone HECA-452) (filled histogram) or rat IgM isotype control (open histogram), followed by biotinylated anti-rat IgM and Sav-PE.


Cutaneous lymphocyte antigen (CLA) is a 140 kD homodimer protein recognized by a unique mAb, HECA-452. It is expressed on T cells in skin, subsets of peripheral blood memory T cells, NK cells, memory B cells and dendritic cells as well as on monocytes, granulocytes, and activated endothelial cells. CLA is a carbohydrate epitope of sialic acid and fucose-modified P-selectin glycoprotein ligand-1 (PSGL-1), a surface glycoprotein expressed on the majority of peripheral blood leukocytes. CLA is a ligand for E-selectin, P-selectin, and L-selectin. It plays a role in memory lymphocyte homing, tethering, and rolling.
