MECA-79_A647_PNAd_Antibody_121418.png
Human paraffin-embedded tonsil tissue slices were prepared with a standard protocol of deparaffinization and rehydration. Antigen retrieval was done with Sodium Citrate H.I.E.R. 1X at 95°C for 40 minutes. Tissue was washed with PBS/0.05% Tween 20 twice for five minutes and blocked with 5% FBS and 0.2% gelatin for 30 minutes. Then, the tissue was stained with 10 µg/mL of anti-human PNAd (clone MECA-79) Alexa Fluor® 647 (red) and anti-human CD8a (clone C8/144B) Alexa Fluor® 594 (green) at 4°C overnight. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (green). The image was captured with a 10X objective.

Description

MECA-79 recognizes a carbohydrate epitope shared with a group of sulfation decorated sialomucins, including sulfated ligands for CD62L (CD34, GlyCAM-1, Sgp200, and a subset of MAdCAM-1). This set antigens has been referred to as peripheral node addressin (PNAd) with the molecular mass 50-250 kD. It has been identified that GlcNAc-6-SO4 sulfation contributes to MECA-79 binding and the core 1 β1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase is required for the generation of the MECA-79 epitope. MECA-79 is expressed on high endothelial venules (HEV) of lymphoid tissues, chronic inflamed tissues and rheumatoid synovia. The interaction of PNAd with CD62L receptor is involved in tethering and rolling of lymphocytes along HEV in lymphoid tissues. MECA-79 antibody reacts with mouse, human and many other species PNAd and blocks L-selectin-dependent lymphocyte adhesion in vitro and in vivo.
