|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||25809 Da|
|Other Names||CD81 antigen, 26 kDa cell surface protein TAPA-1, Target of the antiproliferative antibody 1, Tetraspanin-28, Tspan-28, CD81, CD81, TAPA1, TSPAN28|
|Target/Specificity||This CD81 antibody is generated from a mouse immunized with recombinant protein from the human region of human CD81.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CD81 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||May play an important role in the regulation of lymphoma cell growth. Interacts with a 16-kDa Leu-13 protein to form a complex possibly involved in signal transduction. May act as the viral receptor for HCV.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.|
|Tissue Location||Hematolymphoid, neuroectodermal and mesenchymal tumor cell lines|
