FITC Mouse Anti-Human CD63
FITC Mouse Anti-Human CD63

Flow cytometric analysis of CD63 expression on Rhesus macaque peripheral blood platelets. Platelets were isolated from fresh whole blood and activated by Thrombin (Sigma-Aldrich, Cat. No.T8885), and then fixed with 2% formaldehyde. After washing, the fixed platelets were stained with either FITC Mouse Anti-Human CD63 antibody (Cat. No. 557288/550759/561924; solid line histogram) or with FITC Mouse IgG1 , κ Isotype Control (Cat. No.  555748; dashed line histogram). The fluorescence histograms were derived from events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of platelets.

Preparation And Storage

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

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. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  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.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  5. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  6. Species cross-reactivity detected in product development may not have been confirmed on every format and/or application.
  7. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.

H5C6

The H5C6 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD63. CD63 is a 53 kDa, type III lysosomal glycoprotein, expressed on activated platelets, monocytes and macrophages. This molecule is also referred to in the literature as LIMP, gp55, melanoma-associated antigen ME491, Pltgp40, LAMP-3 and is a member of the tetraspan transmembrane 4 superfamily (TM4SF). It is widely expressed on surface and in the cytoplasm of various hematopoietic (monocytes, macrophages) and non-hematopoietic (endothelium, fibroblasts, osteoclasts, smooth muscle) cells. CD63 plays roles in mediating cellular adhesion and motility.

FITC
Fluorescein (FITC) is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 518-nm. FITC is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520 nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
