CD49f Rat anti-Human, Brilliant Violet 711, Clone: GoH3, BD Optibuild
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 740793
The GoH3 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD49f which is also known as i ntegrin α6 chain . CD49f is a ~150 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the integrin alpha chain family of extracellular matrix and cell adhesion receptors. The i ntegrin α6 subunit associates with the i ntegrin β1 chain (CD29) to form VLA-6 and with the integrin β4 chain (CD104) to form the integrin α6β4 complex, also known as the laminin and kalinin receptor. CD49f is ex pressed mainly on T cells, monocytes, platelets, epithelial cells, endothelial cells, perineural cells, and trophoblasts of placenta. GoH3 recognizes an extracellular epitope of integrin α6 on human, mouse and bovine cells. GoH3 has been reported to block the binding of integrin α6 to laminin P1 and E8 fragments.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV711 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 711-nm. BD Horizon BV711 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in a filter used to detect Cy5.5 / Alexa Fluor 700-like dyes (eg, 712/20-nm filter). Due to the excitation and emission characteristics of the acceptor dye, there may be moderate spillover into the Alexa Fluor 700 and PerCP-Cy5.5 detectors. However, the spillover can be corrected through compensation as with any other dye combination.
