This monoclonal antibody is aseptically packaged and formulated in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline (150 mM NaCl) PBS pH 7.2 - 7.4 with no carrier protein, potassium, calcium or preservatives added. Due to inherent biochemical properties of antibodies, certain products may be prone to precipitation over time. Precipitation may be removed by aseptic centrifugation and/or filtration.
Functional grade preclinical antibodies are manufactured in an animal free facility using only In vitro protein free cell culture techniques and are purified by a multi-step process including the use of protein A or G to assure extremely low levels of endotoxins, leachable protein A or aggregates.
Storage and Handling
Functional grade preclinical antibodies may be stored sterile as received at 2-8°C for up to one month. For longer term storage, aseptically aliquot in working volumes without diluting and store at -80°C. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.

Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
FC The suggested concentration for this 50-6 antibody for staining cells in flow cytometry is ≤ 1 μg per 106 cells in a volume of 100 μl or 100μl of whole blood. Titration of the reagent is recommended for optimal performance for each application.
Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Clone 50-6 recognizes an epitope on human CD151.
CD151 is found on immature hematopoietic cells, megakaryocytes, platelets, keratinocytes, epithelial cells, muscle cells, Schwann cells, vascular endothelium, and activated T-cells.
CD151 is a 29 kD cell surface glycoprotein that is a member of the transmembrane 4 superfamily (tetraspanin family), which is characterized by cell-surface proteins consisting of four hydrophobic domains that mediate signal transduction events involved in the regulation of cell development, activation, growth and motility. CD151 is known to complex with integrins and other transmembrane 4 superfamily proteins and is involved in cell adhesion, migration, and tumor cell metastasis.
