Description: The 2C9.G3 (HMb3-1) monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse and rat CD61, also known as the integrin beta3. CD61 is expressed by activated T cells, granulocytes, and platelet. CD61 associates non-covalently with two integrin alpha subunits; alphaV (CD51) to form Vitronectin Receptor and alphaIib (CD41) to form gpIIb/IIIa. These heterodimeric complexes are responsible for adhesion to extracellular matrix components including fibrinogen, fibronectin, fibronectin, vitronectin, thrombospondin and von Willebrand factor.
Applications Reported: The 2C9.G3 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: The 2C9.G3 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes and bone marrow cells. 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.
The ITGB3 protein product is the integrin beta chain beta 3. Integrins are integral cell-surface proteins composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain. A given chain may combine with multiple partners resulting in different integrins. Integrin beta 3 is found along with the alpha IIb chain in platelets. Integrins are known to participate in cell adhesion as well as cell-surface mediated signalling.
