CD146, also known as melanoma cell adhesion molecule (MCAM) or MUC18, originally identified as a biomarker of melanoma progression, is a transmembrane glycoprotein of 113-130 kDa, belonging to the immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily (PMID: 8378324; 25993332). Structurally, it consists of five Ig domains, a transmembrane domain, and a cytoplasmic region. In normal adult tissue, CD146 is primarily expressed by vascular endothelium and smooth muscle. CD146 is a key cell adhesion protein in vascular endothelial cell activity and angiogenesis, and has been used as marker of circulating endothelium cells (CECs) (PMID: 19356677). In addition to the membrane-anchored form of CD146, a soluble form of CD146 (sCD146, 105 kDa) has also been found in human plasma and in the supernatant of cultured human endothelial cells (PMID: 9462829; 19229070; 16374253; 14597988).

This antibody recognises a band around the expected molecular weight, however this band did not respond to deglycosylation treatment. This strongly suggests the recognised band is another protein other than Mcam, because Mcam is glycosylated, and looking at the other Mcam antibody from the same brand (66153-1-g), it is clear that the band is responsive to PNGaseF treatment.
