Immunogen MOLT-4 (human T-ALL cell line)
Clone M38
Isotype IgG1
Specificity The antibody M38 reacts with CD81, a 25 kDa member of the tetraspanin family, expressed on majority of cells.
Characteristics The purified antibody is conjugated with Fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) under optimum conditions. The reagent is free of unconjugated FITC and adjusted for direct use.
Purification Purified from ascites by protein-A affinity chromatography.
Alternative Name CD81
Background CD81 (TAPA-1), a member of the tetraspanin family, is expressed on virtually all nucleated cells, but above all on germinal center B cells. CD81 forms complexes with other tetraspanin proteins, integrins, coreceptors, MHC class I and II molecules, and influences adhesion, morphology, activation, proliferation and differentiation of B, T and other cells -, e.g. in muscles CD81 promotes cell fusion and myotube maintenance. CD81 has been also identified as a receptor for the hepatitis C virus.
Research Area CD Antigens, Surface Receptors of Immune Cells
Application Notes The reagent is designed for Flow Cytometry analysis of human blood cells using 20 µL reagent / 100 µL of whole blood or 10^6 cells in a suspension. The content of a vial (2 mL) is sufficient for 100 tests.

Working concentrations should be determined by the investigator.
Restrictions For Research Use only
Reconstitution No reconstitution is necessary.
Buffer The reagent is provided in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) containing 15 mM sodium azide and 0.2 % (w/v) high-grade protease free Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a stabilizing agent.
Preservative Sodium azide
Precaution of Use WARNING: Reagents contain sodium azide. Sodium azide is very toxic if ingested or inhaled. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. Wear eye or face protection when handling. If skin or eye contact occurs, wash with copious amounts of water. If ingested or inhaled, contact a physician immediately. Sodium azide yields toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide-containing compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in lead or copper plumbing.
Handling Advice Do not freeze.
Avoid prolonged exposure to light.
Storage 4 °C
Storage Comment Store in the dark at 2-8 °C. Do not use after expiration date stamped on vial label. Short-term exposure to room temperature should not affect the quality of the reagent. However, if reagent is stored under any conditions other than those specified, the conditions must be verified by the user.
