CD42b-APC, SZ2, 0.5 mL, ASR

Product No:B13980

The CD42b antigen (GPIbα) is a membrane glycoprotein of 135 kDa, that forms a disulfide linked 160 kDa membrane protein with the CD42c (GP1bβ) known as GP1b. GP1b forms a noncovalent complex with GPIX (CD42a) and GPV (CD42d). This antigen is found on platelets and megakaryocytes. It has also been reported on vascular and tonsillar endothelial cells. The CD42a-d complex is the receptor for von Willebrand's factor and is known as von Willebrand's factor-dependent adhesion receptor.

Isotype IgG1 Mouse
Clone Description The SZ2 monoclonal antibody prevents the ristocetin-dependent binding of von Willebrand's factor to platelets and inhibits ristocetin-induced platelet agglutination. Platelet aggregation induced by type I collagen and Platelet Activating Factor (PAF) is also inhibited. The SZ2 antibody immunoprecipitates the components of the GPIb complex. It may also be used in Western Blot.
