The CLB-IVC7 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD36 which is also known as Glycoprotein IIIb (GPIIIb, GP3B), Platelet glycoprotein IV (GPIV), Fatty acid translocase (FAT), Platelet collagen receptor (PASIV), Scavenger receptor class B member 3 (SCARB3) or Thrombospondin receptor. CD36 is a ~88 kDa transmembrane that belongs to the scavenger receptor superfamily. The CD36 antigen is expressed on platelets, megakaryocytes, monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, erythroid precursors, adipocytes, and some endothelial and epithelial cells. The CD36 antigen is the receptor for extracellular matrix proteins such as collagen and thrombospondin. The CD36 antigen can mediate the adhesion of erythrocytes infected with the human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum. The CD36 antigen functions as a scavenger receptor in macrophages.
The antibody was conjugated to an oligonucleotide that contains an antibody clone-specific barcode (ABC) flanked by a poly-A tail on the 3' end and a PCR handle (PCR primer binding site) on the 5' end. The ABC for this antibody was designed to be used with other BD AbSeq oligonucleotides conjugated to other antibodies. All AbSeq ABC sequences were selected in silico to be unique from human and mouse genomes, have low predicted secondary structure, and have high Hamming distance within the BD AbSeq portfolio, to allow for sequencing error correction and unique mapping. The poly-A tail of the oligonucleotide allows the ABC to be captured by the BD Rhapsody™ system. The 5' PCR handle allows for efficient sequencing library generation for Illumina sequencing platforms.
NOTE: The BD Rhapsody Single-Cell Analysis System must be used with the BD Rhapsody Express Instrument.
