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. The antibody was conjugated with FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC was removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

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.

The RPM.4 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD42d (Platelet glycoprotein V, GPV). CD42d is a 88-kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein which noncovalently associates with GPIb and GPIX to form a receptor for von Willebrand factor on megakaryocytes and resting platelets. The binding sites for von Willebrand factor and thrombin have been localized to the GPIbα chain of the GPI-b-V-IX complex. GPV is cleaved by thrombin to release a 70 kDa soluble fragment, which contains the epitope recognized by mAb RPM.4. Although the rat CD42d protein's structure is similar to that of human CD42d, the RPM.4 antibody does not cross-react with human platelets.

Fluorescein (FITC) is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 518-nm. FITC is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520 nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
