Description: The eBioMWReg30 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD41 (fibrinogen receptor, gpIIb, integrin alpha IIb). While initially thought to be expressed exclusively on the surface of platelets and megakaryocytes, it has been demonstrated that CD41 is also expressed on hematopoietic progenitors in the embryo, fetus and adult. CD41 associates with CD61 (gpIIIa, integrin beta III) to form a receptor which plays a major role in platelet function, including binding of several adhesion molecules such as fibrinogen, fibronectin and vitronectin.
Recently, the SLAM-family markers, CD48 and CD150 have been used to reliably identify hematopoietic stem cells (HSC). Specifically, it was found that CD150+CD48- bone marrow cells were highly efficient in their ability to confer long-term multi-lineage reconstitution in irradiated mice. Furthermore, the efficiency of reconstitution was enhanced when HSCs were further enriched through the exclusion of CD41+ cells. Thus, the use of CD150+CD48-CD41- as an expression profile efficiently identifies hematopoietic stem cells.
Applications Reported: This eBioMWReg30 (MWReg30) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This eBioMWReg30 (MWReg30) antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated mouse platelets. This may be used at less than or equal to 1 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.
Super Bright 645 is a tandem dye that can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 645 nm. We recommend using a 660/20 bandpass filter. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.
When using two or more Super Bright dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Complete Staining Buffer (Product # SB-4401) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer for more information.
Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light.
Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (Product # 00-8222-49) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product # 00-5333-57) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically.
Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 645 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
