Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  3. Although hamster immunoglobulin isotypes have not been well defined, BD Biosciences Pharmingen has grouped Armenian and Syrian hamster IgG monoclonal antibodies according to their reactivity with a panel of mouse anti-hamster IgG mAbs. A table of the hamster IgG groups, Reactivity of Mouse Anti-Hamster Ig mAbs, may be viewed at http://www.bdbiosciences.com/documents/hamster_chart_11x17.pdf.
  4. 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.

Ha1/29

The Ha1/29 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to intergrin α2 chain (CD49b or VLA-2 α chain), the 160-kDa transmembrane glycoprotein that non-covalently associates with the intergrin β1 subunit (CD29) to form the intergrin α2β1 complex known as VLA-2. VLA-2, a receptor for collagen and laminin, is expressed on activated lymphocytes, epithelial cells, and platelets. It has been reported that Ha1/29 antibody can block VLA-2 binding to collagen and laminin. Ha1/29 antibody also reacts with mouse CD49b.

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.

Purified
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.
