Monoclonal antibody anti-human CD41a (IgG1 kappa, clone VM16a) specifically targets the Platelets GPIIb/IIIa complex, also known as alphaIIb/beta3-integrin
Specific to platelet
GPIIb/IIIa complex (alphaIIb/beta3-integrin). The antibody does not
bind dissociated GPIIb or GPIIIa, platelets with Glanzmann
thrombasthenia or vitronectin receptor.

Purified and lyophilized. The lyophilized antibody (0.2 mg) contains mannitol, dextran, and salts
Flow Cytometry: This antibody can be used in flow cytometry to identify and characterize platelets and megakaryocytes based on the expression of CD41/Integrin alpha 2b.
Immunohistochemistry (IHC): It can be used in IHC to detect and visualize CD41/Integrin alpha 2b expressing cells in tissue sections, helping to identify platelets and megakaryocytes within tissues.
Western Blotting: The antibody might be used in Western blotting to detect CD41/Integrin alpha 2b in protein samples, helping researchers to understand its expression levels in different conditions or tissues.
Platelet Aggregation Studies: CD41 is a part of the complex that mediates platelet aggregation. Therefore, this antibody can be used in studies investigating the mechanisms underlying platelet aggregation.
Hematologic Disease Research: This antibody can be utilized in research to study hematologic diseases and disorders, including thrombocytopenia, leukemia, and other platelet disorders, as CD41 is a key marker for platelets and megakaryocytes.
Thrombosis Research: It can be used in thrombosis research, where understanding the role of platelets and their integrins is crucial.
Cell Adhesion Studies: CD41/Integrin alpha 2b is involved in cell adhesion processes, and thus the antibody can be used in studies investigating cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions.
Immunoprecipitation: This technique might utilize the antibody to isolate CD41/Integrin alpha 2b along with its binding partners from a mixture of proteins, facilitating the study of its interactions and functions at the molecular level.
