Alternative splicing of the mRNA gives rise to the different isoforms, containing inserts of varying sizes in the extracellular domain of the molecule (exons v2-v10). All CD44 isoforms are variably glycosylated. In contrast to standard CD44 (CD44std) which is almost ubiquitously expressed, the variety of CD44 isoforms (CD44var) have a much more restricted distribution, e.g., on activated lymphocytes and macrophages (exon v6).
The sCD44var(v6) ELISA detects all circulating CD44 isoforms comprising the sCD44var(v6) sequences.
Determination of sCD44var(v6) will provide more detailed insight into different pathological modifications during cancer and other diseases.
