Target/Specificity Rat anti-Mouse CD49b monoclonal antibody, clone DX5 recognizes mouse CD49b, also known as Very Late Antigen-2 (VLA-2) or alpha-2 integrin. CD49b is a ~160kDa single pass type I membrane protein expressed by NK cells and a small subset of T-cells (Pellicciet al.2005).Rat anti-mouse CD49b, clone DX5 stains NK cells from all mouse strains tested including Balb/c mice (Areseet al.2001). CD49b acts as a receptor for collagen, laminin, fibronectin and E-cadherin (Carafoliet al.2013).
Preservative & Stabilisers 0.09% Sodium Azide
Storage Store at +4℃ or at -20 ℃.
PrecautionsAnti-Mouse CD49b Antibody, clone DX5 is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
