0.5 mg/ml
Aqueous buffered solution containing ≤0.09% sodium azide.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. Store undiluted at 4°C.

Recommended Assay Procedures

This reagent is effective for indirect immunofluorescence staining of human tissue for flow cytometric analysis and fluorescence microscopy. The antibody is also useful for immunoprecipitation and western blot.

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.

Antibody Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow

Reacts with CD104, integrin β4 chain, a 205 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein, associated with CD49f (integrin α6 chain) to form the α6/β4 (CD49f/CD104) complex. CD104 is expressed on epithelial cells, Schwann cells, and some tumor cells. The CD49f/CD104 complex is located in the hemidesmosomes of the  epidermis, suggesting its role in epidermal cell-basement membrane adhesion. The clone 450-11A recognizes the cytoplasmic domain of human CD104.

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.
