Regulatory Status Legend
The 240-kDa dimeric fibronectin protein exists in two forms: a soluble protomer in body fluids and an insoluble multimer in the extracellular matrix. The latter is the primary functional form and creates a substrate for cell migration, a role which makes fibronectin vital to embryogenesis and wound response. Fibronectin mediates cytoskeletal organization, cell attachment, and cellular signaling through interactions with cellular receptors. Although various isoforms of fibronectin are derived by alternative splicing, they share a common N-terminus which is a critical region for cell surface binding in an initial step of multimer assembly. Further polymerization steps are regulated by fibronectin/integrin interactions and result in generation of the complex fibrils that constitute the fibronectin matrix.
Alexa Fluor® 647 conjugates are highly photostable and remain fluorescent over a broad pH range. The excitation and emission maxima are nearly identical to those of APC. However, APC tends to be brighter while Alexa Fluor® 647 is more optimal for intracellular applications. This fluorochrome exhibits uncommon photostability, making it an ideal choice for use in fluorescence microscopy. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, APC and Alexa Fluor® 647 cannot be used simultaneously.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.
- This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- Species testing during development may have been performed with a different format of the same clone. Selected applications have been tested for cross-reactivity.
