Storage Buffer: The reagent is provided in stabilizing Tris buffered saline (TBS) solution containing 15mM sodium azide.
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.
Usage: The reagent is designed for Flow Cytometry analysis of human blood cells using 4 μl reagent / 100 μl of whole blood or 106 cells in a suspension.
The content of a vial (0.4 ml) is sufficient for 100 tests.
Expiration: See vial label
Lot Number: See vial label
Background: CD65 is a fucosylated carbohydrate antigen (ceramide-dodecasaccharide, type II fucoganglioside), which serves as a ligand for CD62E (E-selectin). Its structure is Gal beta1-4 GlcNAc beta1-3 Gal beta1-4 GlcNAc (3-1 Fuc alpha) beta1-3 ceramide. Unlike CD65s, the CD65 antigen does not contain terminal sialic acid, the rest of their structure is identical. CD65 is expressed on granulocytes and monocytes and participates in cell adhesion. It has been reported as important for extravascular infiltration of acute monocytic leukemia cells.
