CD49b (Integrin alpha 2), PE-Cyanine5, clone: DX5, eBioscience™
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS15597180
GTP-binding proteins (G-proteins) play a critical role in signal transduction by coupling receptors to effectors. The intracellular consequences of G-protein activation include second messenger generation, protein phosphorylation, ion channel activation, gene induction, cell growth, and differentiation. Gi belongs to the pertussis toxin sensitive G-proteins. Gi consists of three different subtypes of a-subunits (ai1, ai2 and ai3).Description: The DX5 monoclonal antibody reacts with CD49b, an antigen expressed on a majority of mouse natural killer cells and a subset of T cells. DX5 reacts with all strains of mouse tested including the most commonly used strains, BALB/c, C57BL/6, C3H, CBA, DBA, AKR, SJL and 129. Simultaneous staining of C57BL/6 spleen cells with anti-NK1.1 mAb (PK136) and DX5 reveals coexpression of both markers by a majority of cells as well as presence of small populations of DX5+PK136- and DX5-PK136+ cells.Applications Reported: This DX5 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This DX5 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.125 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.Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive 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: 488-561 nm; Emission: 667 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
