  • Recognizes cutaneous and uveal melanoma tissues by binding to CD63
  • Suitable for Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry applications

CD63 is a member of the tetraspanin family of surface proteins. CD63 is associated with vesicles and may localize to the cell surface. CD63 is a valuable marker for quantification of in vitro activated basophils by flow cytometry for diagnosis of IgE-mediated allergy ( this method is also known as basophil activation test (BAT). CD63 was shown to bind and internalize integrin ß2. CD63 is expressed in many tissues including testis, optic nerve, melanoma and melanocytes, etc.
