CD63 Rat anti-Mouse, APC, Clone: NVG-2, eBioscience
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Invitrogen 17063180
Description: The monoclonal antibody NVG-2 reacts with mouse CD63, also known as Lysosomal-Associated Membrane Protein 3 (LAMP-3) or tetraspanin 30 (TSPN30), a member of tetraspanin family of proteins characterized by four transmembrane domains. CD63 is expressed on a variety of cell types of hematopoietic lineage, e.g., granulocytes, B lymphocytes, platelets, as well as cells of non-hematopoietic origin. It can be found on the cell membrane, late endocytic vesicles, lysosomes, exosomes, and other specialized granules. On the cell surface, CD63 has been shown to interact with various proteins forming tetraspanin-enriched microdomains (TEM). Its high expression on the cell membrane may be indicative of cell activation, hence, CD63 is often used as an activation marker for basophils, platelets and other cells. Applications Reported: This NVG-2 antibody has been reported for use in intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This NVG-2 antibody has been tested by intracellular staining followed by flow cytometric analysis of mouse resident peritoneal exudate cells using the Intracellular Fixation & Permeabilization Buffer Set (cat. 88-8824) and protocol. Please refer to Best Protocols: Protocol A: Two step protocol for (cytoplasmic) intracellular proteins located under the Resources Tab online. This can be used at less than or equal to 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. CD63 (LAMP-3, lysosome-associated membrane protein-3), a glycoprotein of tetraspanin family, is present in late endosomes, lysosomes and secretory vesicles of various cell types. CD63 is also present in the plasma membrane, usually following cell activation. Hence, CD63 has become a widely used basophil activation marker. In mast cells, however, CD63 exposition does not need their activation. CD63 interacts with integrins and affects phagocytosis and cell migration, it is also involved in H/K-ATPase trafficking regulation of ROMK1 channels. CD63 also serves as a T-cell costimulation molecule. Expression of CD63 can be used for predicting the prognosis in earlier stages of carcinomas. CD63 is expressed on activated platelets, and is a lysosomal membrane glycoprotein that is translocated to plasma membrane after platelet activation. CD63 is also present in monocytes and macrophages and is weakly expressed on granulocytes, B, and T cells. CD63 is identical to the melanoma-associated antigen which is ME491 and to the platelet antigen PTLGP40. Diseases associated with CD63 dysfunction include melanoma and Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome.
