Product Name :
Mouse anti Human CD106

Description :
| Clone B-K9 | Isotype IgG1 | Product Type Primary Antibodies | Units 0.1 mg | Host Mouse | Species Reactivity Human | Application Flow Cytometry

Background :
B-K9 is a mouse monoclonal IgG1 antibody derived by fusion of X63/Ag8.653 mouse myeloma cells with spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with activated human umbilical vein endothelial cells.

Source :
CD106 is a 110kDa type 1 transmembrane sialoglycoprotein, which is also known as vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM-1). The CD106 protein is primarily expressed on activated vascular endothelium but has also been detected on dendritic cell types, macrophages and non-vascular cells in certain tissues. Expression of CD106 is induced by inflammatory stimuli and cytokines. CD106 binds to the integrins CD49d/CD29 (also known as VLA4) and alpha4beta7 and is important in leucocyte-endothelial cell adhesion and signal transduction. The CD106 protein is thought to play a key role in the migration of leucocyte from the blood into tissues, particularly at sites of inflammation. Studies suggest that CD106 may also play a role in the development of rheumatoid arthritis and atherosclerosis. <

Product :
Each vial contains 100µl 1mg/ml purified monoclonal antibody in PBS containing 0.09% sodium azide. Formulation: Each vial contains 100µl 1mg/ml purified monoclonal antibody in PBS containing 0.09% sodium azide.

Specificity :
The mouse monoclonal antibody B-K9 recognizes human CD106.

Applications :
The antibody produced by clone B-K9 can be used for CD106 cell identification, quantification and isolation by flow cytometry. The antibody has also been reported for use in blocking studies. For this application, please request a sodium azide free antibody format. Optimal antibody dilutions for the different applications should be determined by titration. The recommended range for flow cytometry is 1:100 – 1:200.

Storage :
The antibody is shipped at ambient temperature and may be stored at +4°C. For prolonged storage prepare appropriate aliquots and store at or below -20°C. Prior to use, an aliquot is thawed slowly in the dark at ambient temperature, spun down again and used to prepare working dilutions by adding sterile phosphate buffered saline (PBS, pH 7.2). Repeated thawing and freezing should be avoided. Working dilutions should be stored at +4°C, not refrozen, and preferably used the same day. If a slight precipitation occurs upon storage, this should be removed by centrifugation. It will not affect the performance or the concentration of the product.

Caution :
This product is intended FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY, and FOR TESTS IN VITRO, not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures involving humans or animals. It may contain hazardous ingredients. Please refer to the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for additional information and proper handling procedures. Dispose product remainders according to local regulations.This datasheet is as accurate as reasonably achievable, but our company accepts no liability for any inaccuracies or omissions in this information.

Antibodies are immunoglobulins secreted by effector lymphoid B cells into the bloodstream. Antibodies consist of two light peptide chains and two heavy peptide chains that are linked to each other by disulfide bonds to form a “Y” shaped structure. Both tips of the “Y” structure contain binding sites for a specific antigen. Antibodies are commonly used in medical research, pharmacological research, laboratory research, and health and epidemiological research. They play an important role in hot research areas such as targeted drug development, in vitro diagnostic assays, characterization of signaling pathways, detection of protein expression levels, and identification of candidate biomarkers.
