No azide/low endotoxin: Aqueous buffered solution containing no preservative, 0.2µm sterile filtered. Endotoxin level is ≤0.01 EU/µg (≤0.001 ng/µg) of protein as determined by the LAL assay.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. This preparation contains no preservatives, thus it should be handled under aseptic conditions.

Product Notices

  1. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  2. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.

Antibody Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow

The 23C6 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the Integrin αvβ3 heterodimeric complex (CD51/CD61) that is expressed on osteoclasts, endothelial cells, macrophages, melanoma cells, some B cells and in very low amounts on platelets. This antibody has been reported to crossreact with chicken, bovine, and rabbit, but not with rat αvβ3. The integrin αvβ3 heterodimer, often referred to as the vitronectin receptor, binds several ligands in addition to vitronectin including, von Willebrand factor, thrombospondin, osteopontin, bone sialoprotein, neural adhesion molecule L1, laminin, fibronectin, and fibrinogen. The binding of some ligands to the vitronectin receptor has been reported to be inhibited by the 23C6 monoclonal antibody.

NA/LE refers to the culture and purification methods and buffer used to produce purified antibodies with no azide and low endotoxin: Aqueous buffered solution containing no preservative, 0.2µm sterile filtered. Endotoxin level is ≤0.01 EU/µg (≤0.001 ng/µg) of protein as determined by the LAL assay.NA/LE are perfectly suited to be used in culture or in vivo (for nonhuman studies) for functional assays — blocking, neutralizing, activation or depletion — where the presence of azide may damage cells or exogenous endotoxin may signal or activate cells.
