Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  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.

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.

This antibody is routinely tested by flow cytometric analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
