Regulatory Status Legend
The VI-PL2 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD61. CD61 is a 105 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein that is also known as integrin β3 and platelet glycoprotein IIIa (GPIIIa or GP3A). It is expressed on platelets, megakaryocytes, osteoclasts and endothelia. Integrin β3 associates with gpIIa (CD41) to form the CD41/CD61 complex which mediates platelet adhesion and aggregation. CD61 also associates with CD51 to form the CD51/CD61 complex (vitronectin receptor). CD61 appears to bind to fibrinogen, fibronectin, vWF, vitronectin, and thrombospondin to mediate cell adhesion.

R-phycoerythrin (PE) is an accessory photosynthetic pigment found in red algae. It exists in vitro as a 240-kDa protein with 23 phycoerythrobilin chromophores per molecule. This makes PE one of the brightest fluorochromes for flow cytometry applications, but its photobleaching properties make it unsuitable for fluorescence microscopy.

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 R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were 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).
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- 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.
