Description: The eBioSN4 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD9. CD9 is a 24 kDa member of the tetraspanin family, whose members are characterized by the presence of 4 hydrophobic transmembrane domains. CD9 is expressed in platelets, eosinophils, basophils, pre-B cells, activated T cells and neural cell lines. Furthermore, CD9 expression has been associated with a malignant phenotype, including expression on 90% of non T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia cells and on 50% of chronic lymphocytic and acute myeloblastic leukemias. In platelets, CD9 is expressed in alpha-granules and through association with the integrin alphaIIb/betaIII plays a role in platelet aggregation, as demonstrated by the use of anti-human CD9 antibodies. CD9 has also been shown to induce the aggregation of pre-B cell lines, and the adhesion and migration of pre-B cells and Schwann cells. Additionally, it has been demonstrated that CD9 is able to provide a co-stimulatory signal for T cells independently of CD28, in the absence of antigen-presenting cells. Binding of the eBioSN4 monoclonal antibody partially cross-blocks binding of another anti-human CD9 monoclonal antibody, MM2/57.
Applications Reported: This eBioSN4 (SN4 C3-3A2) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This eBioSN4 (SN4 C3-3A2) antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human platelets. This can be used at 5 µL (0.25 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 436 can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 436 nm. We recommend using a 450/50 bandpass filter, or equivalent. 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.
Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 436 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
