RDI Divison of researchd Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (flow cytometry, neutralization, blotting, histochemistry, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below. All products are for in vitro research use only-not for use in or on humans or animals-not for use in diagnostics. Price/availability/specifications subject to change without notice.

Anti-RAT  CD 42D Antibodies

DATA SHEET:mouse anti rat cd42d (Platelet Glycoprotein V)monoclonal

Catalog#: RDI-rtCD42D-M4     Price: $500.00/1pkg   0.5mg

also available FITC conj cat#RDi-RTCD42D-4FT $406.00/100ug


Supplied: Purified form: 0.5mg in 1ml (0.5mg/ml) 10mM phosphate buffer pH7.2 with 150mM NaCl and 0.09% sodium azide.

Clone: RPM.4

Immunogen: Wistar Rat Platelets

Ig Isotype: mouse (BALB/C) IgG2ak

Purification: Purified from TCS by affinity chromatography

Reactivity: Clone RPM.4 Mab reacts with CD42d (Platelet glycoprotein V, GPV), an 88-kDa glycoprotein which noncovalently associates with GPIb and GPIX to form a receptor for von Willebrand factor on megakaryocytes and resting platelets. The binding sites for von Willebrand factor and thrombin have been localized to the GPIb chain of the GPIb-V-IX complex. GPV is cleaved by thrombin to release a 70-kDa soluble fragment, which contains the epitope recognized by mAb RPM.4. 1 Although the rat CD42d protein’s structure is similar to that of human CD42d, the RPM.4 antibody does not cross-react with human platelets.

USE: -flow cytometry(<1ug/1M cells)
