CD55, also known as DAF (decay accelerating factor), is expressed on the surfaces of red blood cells, hematopoietic cells and many non-hemotopietic cells. There are two isoforms of mouse CD55, a GPI-anchored isofrom and a transmembrane isoform. Both are recognized by RIKO-3. The function of CD55 is to protect damage by complement deposition.Product Details

- 60-70 kd single chain glycoprotein. While human CD55 contains only one CD55 gene, two distinct CD55 genes have been identified in the mouse, referred to as GPI-DAF and transmembrane(TM)-DAF. GPI-DAF is expressed only in testis.
Red blood cells and most of the splenocytes, including B cells and T cells, and also many non-hematopoetic cells.
