Description: The eBioGoH3 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse and human CD49f, also known as integrin alpha 6, very late activation antigen 6 (VLA-6 alpha chain), and platelet gpIc. CD49f is a 120 kD transmembrane protein. CD49f associates with CD29, the integrin beta 1 chain, to form the VLA-6 complex; CD49f also associates with CD104, the integrin beta 4 chain, to form the alpha 6 beta 4 complex. CD49f is expressed primarily on T cells, monocytes, platelets, epithelial and endothelial cells. CD49f expression has also been found on germinal center B cells. The eBioGoH3 antibody is cross-reactive to integrin alpha 6 on human, mouse and bovine cells. This antibody has also been reported to have functional activity in blocking the binding of integrin alpha 6 to laminin.
Applications Reported: This eBioGoH3 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This eBioGoH3 antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This may be used at 5 µL (0.125 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.
Super Bright 780 is a tandem dye that can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 780 nm. We recommend using a 780/60 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) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product # 00-5333) 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: 780 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
