Positive Tested Species Reactivity: Human, Primate
Depositors Notes: 7H2 reacts with alphaIIbbeta3 complex on platelets and has variable effects on platelet function. The epitope recognized by 7H2 is located on the beta3 PSI domain (unpublished mutational analysis).
Immunogen: Human platelets
Alternate Gene Names: GP3A, CD61
Immunogen Sequence: Full length protein
Alternate Antibody Name:
Alternate Antigen Name:
Epitope Mapped: Yes
Myeloma Strain: X63-Ag8.653
Epitope Location or Sequence: integrin beta3 PSI domain
Additional Information: 7H2 recognizes free beta3 as weel as alphaVbeta3 and alphaIIbbeta3 and their pro-forms. In immunoblots, 7H2 doesn't recognize its target under reducing conditions.
Recommended Applications: FACS, Function Blocking, Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry, Immunoprecipitation, Western Blot

Storage and Handling Recommendations
Although many cell products are maintained at 4°C for years without loss of activity, shelf-life at 4°C is highly variable.
To ensure retention of antibody activity, we recommend aliquotting the product into two parts:
1) a volume of antibody stored at 4°C to be used within two weeks.
2) the remaining product diluted with an equal volume of molecular grade glycerol and stored at -20°C.
While optimal Ig concentration for an application will vary, a good starting concentration for immunohistochemistry (IHC),
immunofluorescence(IF) and staining is 2-5 µg/ml.
For Western blots, the concentration is decreased by one order of magnitude (that is, 0.2-0.5 µg/ml).
All cell products contain the antimicrobial ProClin. See our FAQ section for additional information.
