Description: The 5B11 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD123, the alpha chain of the IL-3 receptor. This 60-70 kDa transmembrane protein binds to IL-3 with low affinity by itself and when associated with either CD131 (common beta chain) or AIC2A (IL-3beta) binds IL-3 with high affinity. CD123 does not transduce any intracellular signals upon binding IL-3 and requires the beta chain for this function.
Applications Reported: This 5B11 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 5B11 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse bone marrow cell suspension. This can 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.
Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 520 nm; Laser: Blue Laser.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
IL-3Ra (Interleukin-3 receptor subunit alpha) belongs to the type I cytokine receptor family and is a heterodimer with a unique alpha chain paired with the common beta (beta c or CDw131) subunit. IL-3Ra is responsible for the transmission of signal of Interleukin-3. IL-3Ra and IL-3Rb chain heterodimerization is induced by Interleukin-3, which is required for receptor activation but not high affinity binding. IL-3Ra is also reported that IL-3Ra subunits are overexpressed on acute myeloid leukemia (AML) blasts compared with normal hematopoietic cells and are thus potential targets for novel therapeutic agents.
