Human (Homo sapiens)
U266 human peripheral blood myeloma cell line
The antibody B-A38 recognizes CD138 (syndecan 1), a 65-70 kDa heparan sulfate proteoglycan expressed mainly in the epidermis and plasma cells, but also in growth factor-stimulated lymphocytes. _x000D_
The reagent is provided in stabilizing phosphate buffered saline (PBS) solution containing 15mM sodium azide.
