CD140b (PDGFRB) Rat anti-Mouse, APC, Clone: APB5, eBioscience™
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS17140282
Description: The APB5 monoclonal antibody reacts with the mouse CD140b molecule, the beta chain of the platelet derived growth factor receptor (PDGF receptor). PDGFRb is a receptor tyrosine kinase that forms dimers on the surface upon ligand binding and phosphorylates substrates. Dimers of PDGFR consist of either homodimers of alpha/alpha, beta/beta, or heterodimers of alpha/beta and serve as a substrate for its kinase activity. CD140b is expressed by embryonic tissues and mesenchymal-derived cells of the adult mouse tissues. The PDGFR beta chain is reported to play a significant role in formation of fibrous atherosclerotic lesions. Applications Reported: This APB5 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This APB5 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of NIH 3T3 cell line. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.5 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red Laser. Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered.PDGFRb is a cell surface tyrosine kinase receptor for members of the platelet-derived growth factor family. These growth factors are mitogens for cells of mesenchymal origin. The identity of the growth factor bound to a receptor monomer determines whether the functional receptor is a homodimer or a heterodimer, composed of both platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha and beta polypeptides. The gene is flanked on chromosome 5 by the genes for granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor and macrophage-colony stimulating factor receptor; all three genes may be implicated in the 5-q syndrome. A translocation between chromosomes 5 and 12, that fuses this gene to that of the translocation, ETV6, leukemia gene, results in chronic myeloproliferative disorder with eosinophilia.
