Description: The VI-PL2 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD61, also known as integrin beta 3 and GPIIIa. CD61 is a 90-110 kDa member of the beta integrin family expressed by a wide variety of cells, including leukocytes, platelets, endothelial and smooth muscle cells. CD61 binds non-covalently with the alpha integrins CD41 and CD51, to form the alpha IIb beta3 (CD41/CD61) and alpha v beta3 (CD51/CD61) complexes. These alpha beta heterodimers are capable of mediating a variety of cellular responses including adhesion, trafficking, proliferaton and differentiation. The CD41/CD61 integrin has been shown to be involved in platelet aggregation, and binds to fibrinogen, von Willebrand Factor (vWF) and fibronectin. The CD51/CD61 integrin binds to matrix proteins including vitronectin, fibronectin, vWF and fibrinogen, and has been shown to have a strong role in modulating the migration and survival of angiogenic endothelial cells.
This VI-PL2 antibody has also been shown to crossreact with canine and several non-human primate species, including baboon, rhesus, and cynomologus monkey.
Applications Reported: This VI-PL2 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This VI-PL2 antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human platelets. This may be used at 5 µL (0.5 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 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) (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: 645 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
