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 TÜ145 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD48. CD48 belongs to the CD2 family within the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD48 is a ~43 kDa glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored single chain glycoprotein. CD48 is strongly expressed on lymphocytes, monocytes and macrophages and weakly on granulocytes. The expression of CD48 is upregulated following lymphocyte activation and by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection. CD48 binds with high affinity to CD244 and with low affinity to CD2. These receptor-ligand interactions can augment or inhibit leukocyte responses.

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.

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.
