Monoclonal antibody anti-human CD61
(integrin beta 3, ß-integrin, Platelet GPIIIa, VNR ß-chain 3)
(IgG1 kappa, clone CRC54)
Reacts with platelet
glycoprotein gpIIIa/VNR ß chain. This glycoprotein is the common ß
chain (ß3 Integrin) of the cytoadhesins, gpIIbIIIa and VNR. Reacts
with platelets and megakaryocytes. The antibody reacts preferentially
with the activated/occupied form of platelet GPIIb-IIIa
(ligand-induced binding site or LIBS epitope) and
dissociated form of GPIIIa. CRC54-epitope is located within the
N-terminal region of GPIIIa (first 100 aminoacids). CRC54 does not
react with platelets of patients with Glanzmann thrombastenia.
