CD59 is a 19-25 kD glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored glycoprotein also known as protectin, MACIF, and H19. It is broadly expressed on hematopoietic and non-hematopoietic cells. CD59 inhibits the cytolytic activity of complement by binding to C9, inhibiting incorporation into C5b-8, and preventing the terminal steps in complement polymerization of the membrane attack complex. CD59 has also been reported to play a role in T cell activation.


Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide and 0.2% (w/v) BSA (origin USA).

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 5 µl per million cells in 100 µl staining volume or 5 µl per 100 µl of whole blood.
