Extended validation for CD81 Antibody, anti-human, REAfinity™

Specificity

Knockout validation
To ensure antibody specificity, the target gene is knocked out in a suitable cell line using the CRISPR/Cas9 system and the knockout is confirmed by sequencing of the target locus. The antibody is considered to bind specifically to the intended epitope if no antibody binding to the knockout cells can be detected. The antibody staining is controlled by fluorescence microscopy and/or flow cytometry.

Sensitivity

Fixation data
To provide an indication on how an antibody performs after fixation of cells, in-house data on staining results before and after fixation with 3.7% formaldehyde using Miltenyi Biotec antibodies are provided. Different experimental settings may lead to different results.

Overview

Clone REA513 recognizes the human CD81 antigen, a multi-pass membrane protein also known as TAPA-1. It is a member of the tetraspanin family including, for example, CD9, CD37, CD53, CD63, CD82, and CD151. The proteins mediate signal transduction events that play a role in the regulation of cell development, activation, growth, and motility. The 26 kDa cell surface protein is involved in adhesion, activation, proliferation, and differentiation of B cells, T cells, and other cells. On B cells CD81 is part of a complex with CD21, CD19, and Leu13. Similarly on T cells CD81 associates with CD4 and CD8 and provides a costimulatory signal with CD3. CD81 is expressed by epithelial and endothelial cells, T and B cells, as well as natural killer (NK) cells.
Additional information: Clone REA513 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors.
