Application Notes:

Additional reported applications for the relevant formats include: immunoprecipitation from cell lysates2, capture antibody function in a sandwich ELISA assay2, and immunohistochemical staining of frozen brain sections4.

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 ≤0.5 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. For immunohistochemical staining on frozen tissue sections, the suggested use of this reagent is 5.0 - 10 µg per ml. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes were stained

C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes were stained with purified CD100/SEMA4D (clone BMA-12, filled histogram) or purified rat IgG2a, κ isotype control (open histogram), followed by anti-rat IgG PE.

C57BL/6 mouse frozen kidney section

C57BL/6 mouse frozen kidney section was fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (PFA) for ten minutes at room temperature and blocked with 5% FBS for 30 minutes at room temperature. Then the section was stained with 10 µg/mL of purified anti-mouse CD100 (clone BMA-12) and anti-mouse Podoplanin (clone 8.1.1) Alexa Fluor® 594 (green) overnight at 4°C, followed by 2.5 µg/mL of goat anti-mouse IgG (clone Poly4053) Alexa Fluor® 647 (red) for two hours at room temperature. The image was captured with a 10X objective.


CD100, also known as Semaphorin-4D (SEMA4D), is a 150 kD, type I transmembrane protein, with one sema domain and one C2-type Ig domain. It is found as a homodimer on the cell surface. CD100 is expressed in the brain, kidney, heart, the majority of hematopoietic cells, and some malignant cells. CD100 is a potent inducer of angiogenesis and inhibitor of bone formation, and plays a role in lymphocyte activation, antibody production, dendritic cell maturation, and axon guidance. Its ligands are CD72 and Plexin-B1. CD100 is cleaved from the membrane of activated T and B cells, producing a soluble form.

Other Names: Neuroimmune semaphorin 4D, Sema4D, M-Sema G, Semaphorin-C-like 2, Semaphorin-J, Semaj, Semcl2, Coll-4, Semacl2
Structure: Type I transmembrane protein, one sema domain, one C2-type immunoglobulin domain, homodimer, 150 kD.
Distribution: Highly expressed on most hematopoietic cells, is also found in the brain, kidney, and heart. Overexpressed by some malignant cell types.
Function: Potent inducer of angiogenesis, inhibitor of bone formation, plays a role in lymphocyte activation, antibody production and dendritic cell maturation. In neurons, regulates dendrite branching and axon guidance.
Ligand Receptor: CD72, Plexin-B1.
