PE Mouse Anti-Human CD42a
PE Mouse Anti-Human CD42a

Flow cytometric analysis of CD42a expression on human peripheral blood platelets. Resting platelets were stained with either PE Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 555749; dashed line histogram) or PE Mouse Anti-Human CD42a antibody (Cat. No. 558819/561853; solid line histogram). The fluorescence histogram showing CD42a expression (or Ig Isotype control staining) was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of platelets.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

Product Notices

  1. 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).
  2. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

ALMA.16

The ALMA.16 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD42a. CD42a is a 17-22 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is also known as Platelet glycoprotein IX (GPIX), or Glycoprotein 9 (GP9). CD42a forms a noncovalently linked complex (GPIb/GPIX/GPV) with CD42b, CD42c and CD42d that may serve as a receptor for von Willebrand factor. It is expressed on platelets and megakaryocytes and is absent on the platelets of patients with Bernadr-Soulier Syndrome (BSS). Although the CD42a function is not fully understood, GPIX glycoprotein is important for the assembly and membrane expression of the CD42 complex and for the maintenance of the functional conformation of CD42b (GPIb).

PE
R-Phycoerythrin (PE), is part of the BD family of Phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 496 nm and 566 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 576 nm. PE is designed to be excited by the Blue (488 nm), Green (532 nm) and Yellow-Green (561 nm) lasers and detected using an optical filter centered near 575 nm (e.g., a 575/26-nm bandpass filter). As PE is excited by multiple lasers, this can result in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover on instruments with various combinations of Blue, Green, and Yellow-Green lasers. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
