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. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  3. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  4. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at
  5. 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.
  6. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.

Antibody Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow

Reacts with the 130 kDa integrin β1 subunit, CD29, that is expressed following cell activation as a heterodimeric complex with one of nine distinct α subunits, comprising the very late activation antigen (VLA) subfamily of adhesion receptors. The HUTS-21 β1 epitope is weakly expressed on resting lymphocytes, but is upregulated by TPA, Ca++ ionophore, or another CD29 antibody, TS2/16. This upregulation is Mn++ dependent and not supported by other divalent cations such as Ca++ and/or Mg++. The VLA receptors have a broad cellular distribution and interact with ligands like VCAm-1 and MAdCAM-1 during cell adhesion. They also interact with extra-cellular matrices including collagen, laminin, fibronectin and others. HUTS-21 antibody enhances adherence of TPA-activated lymphocytes to fibronectin.

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.
