CD49b Hamster anti-Mouse, Brilliant Violet 421, Clone: HMα2, BD Optibuild
Hamster Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 740030
The HM α 2 antibody reacts with integrin α 2 chain (CD49b), the 150-kDa transmembrane glycoprotein that non-covalently associates with the integrin β 1 subunit (CD29) to form the integrin α 2β 1 complex known as VLA-2. VLA-2, a receptor for collagen and laminin, is expressed on some splenic CD4+ T lymphocytes and NK-T cells, intestinal intraepithelial and lamina propria lymphocytes, splenic NK cells, epithelial cells, and platelets; but it is not on thymocytes or Peyer’s-patch or lymphnode lymphocytes. The expression of VLA-2 is upregulated on lymphocytes in response to mitogens. The HM α 2 antibody has been reported to partially block the interaction of T-cell blasts, but not NK cells, with collagen. Purified HM α
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon BV421 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue conjugates.
