CD41a Rat anti-Mouse, APC-eFluor® 780, Clone: eBioMWReg30 (MWReg30), eBioscience™
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS47041182
Description: The eBioMWReg30 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD41 (fibrinogen receptor, gpIIb, integrin alpha IIb). While initially thought to be expressed exclusively on the surface of platelets and megakaryocytes, it has been demonstrated that CD4A 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. APC-eFluor 780 emits at 780 nm and is excited with the Red laser (633 nm). Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochome. Light sensitivity: This tandem is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light. Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 µL cell sample + 100 µL IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically. Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 780 nm; Laser: Red Laser. Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered. CD41 (platelet glycoprotein IIb, ITGA2B) is composed of two subunits -120 kDa a, alpha and 23 kDa b, beta- that interact with CD61 in the presence of calcium to form a functional adhesive protein receptor. CD41 is also involved in blood coagulation by mediating platelet aggregation. Upon blood vessel damage, CD41 binds to a variety of proteins including von Willebrand factor, fibrinogen, fibronectin and vitronectin. CD41 is mainly expressed on megakaryocyte-platelet lineage, but generally belongs to the antigens that are expressed during the early stages of hematopoietic differentiation. Diseases associated with CD41 dysfunction include Glansmann Thrombasthenia, and Platelet type-16 bleeding disorder.
