|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti Human CD42a antibody, clone FMC-25 recognizes human CD42a, also known as Platelet glycoprotein IX, Glycoprotein 9 or GP-IX. CD42a is a 177 amino acid, ~20kDa type I single pass transmembrane glycoprotein containing a single leucine-rich repeat containing N-terminal domain and a single leucine-rich repeat containing C-terminaldomain.CD42a is expressed by platelets and megakaryocytes and forms a covalent complex with CD42c (GP-1b-beta), CD42b (GP-1b-alpha) and CD42d (platelet glycoprotein V) to create the platelet surface receptor for von Willebrand factor. Incubation of the intact von Willebrand receptor complex with clone FMC-25 does not appear to inhibit binding of von Willebrand factor to the receptor (Yanet al.2011). Defects in the GP1BB gene encoding human CD42a can lead to the inherited bleeding disorder Bernard-Soulier syndrome (Diz-Küçükkaya 2013), characterized by prolonged bleeding times, thrombocytopenia and the appearence of giant platelets in the circulation (Johnset al.2014).Mouse anti human CD42a antibody, clone FMC-25 has been successfully used as a capture reagent for platelet-autoantibody complexes in the sera of patients presenting thrombocytopenia associated with anti-phospholipid syndrome (Godeauet al.1997).|
