Podoplanin (PDPN)/T1alpha is utilized as a specific marker of lymphatic endothelial cells or type I alveolar cells of lung. Therefore, sensitive and specific monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) detecting PDPN are necessary for immunohistochemical analyses, especially using formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissues. Recently, we developed an anti-bear PDPN (bPDPN) mAb, PMab-247, which is useful for immunohistochemical analyses to detect both lymphatic endothelial cells and type I alveolar cells of lung. However, it is difficult to distinguish lymphatic endothelial cells from type I alveolar cells in the bear lung. In this study, we showed that a novel anti-bPDPN mAb, PMab-241 stained only lymphatic endothelial cells, not type I alveolar cells of the lung in immunohistochemical analyses. These findings suggest that PMab-241 could be useful for staining lymphatic endothelial cells specifically in the bear lung tissues.
