Podoplanin (PDPN) plays an important role in the development of many normal tissues and is expressed in various cancers. We have previously developed multiple monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against PDPNs from a variety of animal species and characterized each of these PDPNs using the anti-PDPN mAbs. In this study, we evaluated whether these anti-PDPN mAbs possess cross-reactivity with ferret PDPN (ferPDPN) using flow cytometry. Comprehensive analysis using 17 differing anti-PDPN mAbs available for immunohistochemistry use, demonstrated that the anti-bear PDPN mAb (clone PMab-241) strongly cross-reacts with ferPDPN-overexpressed Chinese hamster ovary-K1 (CHO/ferPDPN) cells. Immunohistochemistry analysis demonstrated intense PMab-241 staining within Bowman's capsules and glomeruli of the ferret kidney, and lymphatic endothelial cells of the ferret lung. These results demonstrate that PMab-241 is suitable for the detection of PDPN in ferret tissues.
