|Specificity:||The antibody MEM-06 reacts with CD41 (GPIIb), a transmembrane glycoprotein (integrin family) composed of two chains GPIIb alpha (heavy chain; 120 kDa) and GPIIb beta (light chain; 23 kDa). CD41 is mainly expressed on platelets and megakaryocytes.|
|Immunogen:||Leukocytes of patient suffering from LGL-type leukaemia.|
|Preparation:||The purified antibody is conjugated with Biotin-LC-NHS under optimum conditions. The reagent is free of unconjugated biotin.|
|Storage Buffer:||Phosphate buffered saline (PBS) with 15 mM sodium azide, approx. pH 7.4|
|Storage / Stability:||Store at 2-8°C. Do not freeze. Do not use after expiration date stamped on vial label.|
|Usage:||Biotinylated antibody is designed for indirect immunofluorescence analysis by Flow Cytometry.
Suggested working dilution is 1:200. Indicated dilution is recommended starting point for use of this product. Working concentrations should be determined by the investigator.
|Expiration:||See vial label|
|Lot Number:||See vial label|
|Background:||CD41 (platelet glycoprotein IIb) 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. Upon blood vessel damage, this receptor 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 early stages of hematopoietic differentiation.|
