Podoplanin (PDPN) obtained from various animal species has been characterized using specific anti-PDPN monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), namely, PMab-1, PMab-2, PMab-32, PMab-38, PMab-44, and PMab-52 against mouse, rat, rabbit, dog, bovine, and cat PDPN, respectively. PDPN is expressed in type I alveolar cells in lungs, lymphatic endothelial cells, and kidney podocytes. In this study, we investigated possible cross-reactions between anti-PDPN mAbs and sheep PDPN. Type I alveolar cells from sheep lung were strongly detected by PMab-44 using immunohistochemical analyses. These results indicate that PMab-44 may be useful for the detection of sheep PDPN.
