Regulatory Status Legend
The HIP1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD42b. CD42b is also known as the Platelet glycoprotein Ib alpha chain that is encoded by the GP1BA gene. CD42b is disulfide bonded to CD42c to form a 170 kDa heterodimer, GPIb. GPIb forms a noncovalent complex with CD42a and CD42d (CD42 complex) that is expressed on platelets and megakaryocytes. The CD42 complex serves as the von Willebrand Factor (vWF) surface receptor involved in the adhesion of platelets to the subendothelium of damaged vascular walls. HIP1 inhibits the ristocetin-dependent binding of vWF to platelets and partially inhibits collagen-induced aggregation.
FITC, fluorescein isothiocyanate, is a fluorochrome with a molecular weight of 389 Da. FITC is sensitive to pH changes and photobleaching. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, FITC and Alexa Fluor® 488 cannot be used simultaneously. FITC is relatively dim and should be reserved for highly expressed markers whenever possible.

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.
- 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).
- Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
- 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.
- Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
- For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
