Product Preparation
A2B5 binds to neural tissue such as retina, brain, spinal cord, and dorsal root ganglia. The antigen was shown by indirect immunofluorescence to be associated with plasma membranes of most, or all, neuron cell bodies in chicken retina, but little or no antigen was detected on axons or dendrites, Müller cells, or retina pigment cells. Other studies show that the monoclonal antibody A2B5 reacts with the surface membrane of most neurons in monolayer cultures of cerebellum, retina, spinal cord, and dorsal root ganglion of embryonic and early postnatal C57Bl/6 J mice A small percentage of astroglial cells also expresses A2B5 antigen in murine, chicken and rabbit cerebellum, in chicken retina, and in murine spinal cord and dorsal root ganglion. Less mature astroglial cells are strained for A2B5 antigen to a greater extent than the more mature astrocytes. A2B5+ cells isolated from human glioblastomas exhibit cancer stem cell properties. The A2B5 epitope belongs to the sialoganglioside family. Scientific findings prove the crucial role of the A2B5 epitope in the promotion of proliferation, migration, clonogenicity, and tumorigenesis, pointing at A2B5 as an attractive therapeutic target for glioblastomas
