|Specificity:||The monoclonal antibody 18A2 recognizes CD140b / PDGF-RB, the 180-190 kDa beta chain of platelet-derived growth factor receptor, which is widely expressed on a variety of mesenchymal-derived cells and plays pro-proliferative roles.|
|Immunogen:||CD140b-transfected NIH 3T3 cells|
|Preparation:||The purified antibody is conjugated with R-Phycoerythrin (PE) under optimum conditions. The conjugate is purified by size-exclusion chromatography and adjusted for direct use. No reconstitution is necessary.|
|Storage Buffer:||The reagent is provided in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) containing 15 mM sodium azide and 0.2% (w/v) high-grade protease free Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a stabilizing agent.|
|Storage / Stability:||Store in the dark at 2-8°C. Do not freeze. Avoid prolonged exposure to light.
Do not use after expiration date stamped on vial label.
Short-term exposure to room temperature should not affect the quality of the reagent. However, if reagent is stored under any conditions other than those specified, the conditions must be verified by the user.
|Usage:||The reagent is designed for Flow Cytometry analysis of human blood cells using 20 μl reagent / 100 μl of whole blood or 106 cells in a suspension.
The content of a vial (0.5 ml) is sufficient for 25 tests.
|Expiration:||See vial label|
|Lot Number:||See vial label|
|Background:||CD140b / PDGF-RB (platelet-derived growth factor receptor beta) is a cell surface receptor for members of platelet-derived growth factor family, whose intracellular part contains a tyrosine kinase domain. CD140b forms homodimers, or heterodimerizes with CD140a / PDGF-RA. Whereas CD140a can have both pro-proliferative or anti-proliferative effects, the CD140b induces in various cell types their proliferation and migration. CD140b has also developmental roles in the cardiovascular system and is preferentially expressed on some tumours such as medulloblastoma.|
