The HTF-1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD142. CD142 is a 45-47 kDa, single chain, type I transmembrane glycoprotein also known as Tissue Factor (TF). CD142 has been referred in the literature as coagulation Factor III or thromboplastin and it is expressed on activated endothelial cells and lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated monocytes/macrophages. TF associates with factor VIIa to form a complex and acts as an enzyme that initiates the blood coagulation cascade. It is known as the major initiator of clotting in normal hemostasis. CD142 can be induced by various inflammatory mediators in monocytes and vascular endothelial cells. This antibody is useful in inflammation, thrombosis and hemostasis research.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BUV615 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome with an Ex Max near 350 nm and an Em Max near 615 nm. BD Horizon Brilliant BUV615 can be excited by the ultraviolet laser (355 nm) and detected with a 610/20 filter and a 595 nm LP. Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by the blue/yellow-green laser line, there may be significant spillover into channels detecting PE-CF594 like emissions (eg, 610/20-nm filter).
