Podoplanin (PDPN) is expressed in type I alveolar cells, kidney podocytes, and lymphatic endothelial cells. We have characterized the PDPNs of various animal species using specific anti-PDPN monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). In this study, we investigated whether these anti-PDPN mAbs cross-react with goat PDPN (gPDPN). Flow cytometry demonstrated that the anti-bovine PDPN mAb PMab-44 (IgG1, kappa) reacts with gPDPN, which is overexpressed in CHO-K1 cells. Using immunohistochemical analysis, type I alveolar cells of goat lung were strongly detected by PMab-44. These results indicate that PMab-44 is useful for investigating gPDPN.
