Description: This monoclonal antibody CSTEM28 reacts with human desmoglein 2 (DSG2), a type 1 transmembrane protein belonging to the cadherin family. DSG2 is expressed by epithelial cells, cardiomyocytes, endothelial progenitors, and CD34+CD45dim hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells. This adhesion molecule forms cell-cell adhesion complexes called desmosomes that provide tensile strength to tissues that experience mechanical stress. Other than its role in desmosome formation, DSG2 plays a role in barrier integrity, adhesion, migration, cell apoptosis, proliferation, vasculogenic mimicry, and intracellular signaling. DSG2-expressing endothelial progenitor cells are pro-angiogenic, suggesting a role in vasculature formation. On hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells, DSG2 expression is highest on CD38-CD90+ multi-potent cells. DSG2 expression is progressively decreased as a function of differentiation, with DSG2 expression absent on mature lymphocytes. DSG2 also serves as a receptor for adenoviruses and can be shed by mucosal barriers in the intestine.
