Anti-Mouse/Rat CD42d PEAlso known as: platelet glycoprotein V, GP5, GPV Clone: 1C2 RUO: For Research Use Only
Description: The monoclonal antibody 1C2 recognizes mouse and rat CD42d, a single transmembrane protein also known as platelet glycoprotein V (GPV). CD42d interacts with CD42a, CD42b and CD42c to form the receptor for von willebrand factor and thrombin. This functional complex plays a role in platelet adhesion. Expression of CD42d (unlike other markers such as CD41) is restricted to resting platelets and megakaryocytes and therefore is a good marker for development of megakaryocytes.
