Description: The VI-PL2 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD61, also known as integrin beta 3 and GPIIIa. CD61 is a 90-110 kDa member of the beta integrin family expressed by a wide variety of cells, including leukocytes, platelets, endothelial and smooth muscle cells. CD61 binds non-covalently with the alpha integrins CD41 and CD51, to form the alpha IIb beta3 (CD41/CD61) and alpha v beta3 (CD51/CD61) complexes. These alpha beta heterodimers are capable of mediating a variety of cellular responses including adhesion, trafficking, proliferaton and differentiation. The CD41/CD61 integrin has been shown to be involved in platelet aggregation, and binds to fibrinogen, von Willebrand Factor (vWF) and fibronectin. The CD51/CD61 integrin binds to matrix proteins including vitronectin, fibronectin, vWF and fibrinogen, and has been shown to have a strong role in modulating the migration and survival of angiogenic endothelial cells. This VI-PL2 antibody has also been shown to crossreact with canine and several non-human primate species, including baboon, rhesus, and cynomologus monkey. Applications Reported: This VI-PL2 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This VI-PL2 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of human platelets. This can be used at 5 µL (0.25 µg) per test.A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. The ITGB3 protein product is the integrin beta chain beta 3. Integrins are integral cell-surface proteins composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain. A given chain may combine with multiple partners resulting in different integrins. Integrin beta 3 is found along with the alpha IIb chain in platelets. Integrins are known to participate in cell adhesion as well as cell-surface mediated signalling.
