CD171, also known as L1CAM or L1, is a transmembrane glycoprotein. It is a 200-220 kD neuronal cell adhesion molecule and a member of the L1 protein family belonging to the immunoglobulin superfamily.
This cell adhesion molecule plays an important role in nervous system development, including neuron-neuron adhesion, signal transduction, axon guidance, cell migration and differentiation. CD171 also has a strong implication in treatment-resistanct cancers. Mutations in the gene cause three X-linked neurological syndromes known by the acronym CRASH (corpus callosum hypoplasia, retardation, aphasia, spastic paraplegia and hydrocephalus). Alternative splicing of a neuron-specific exon is thought to be functionally relevant.

- 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 immunohistochemistry, a concentration range of 5.0 - 10 µg/ml is suggested. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
