Detection of Mouse Glycoprotein V/CD42d by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of mouse platelets. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Mouse Glycoprotein V/ CD42d Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6990) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). Specific bands were detected for Glycoprotein V/CD42d at approximately 70-80 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Glycoprotein V/CD42d in Mouse Platelets. Glycoprotein V/CD42d was detected in immersion fixed mouse platelets using Sheep Anti-Mouse Glycoprotein V/CD42d Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6990) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL010). View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Background: Glycoprotein V/CD42d
GP-V (platelet glycoprotein V; also CD42d) is a 78-88 kDa member of the leucine-rich (LR) repeat family of proteins. It is expressed on the surface of platelets where it noncovalently interacts with three additional proteins to form a heteromeric complex that serves as a receptor for both thrombin and von Willebrand factor. In addition, GP-V is normally a receptor for collagen. Following receptor complex activation due to thrombin cleavage of GP-V, the collagen-binding activity of GP-V is lost, limiting thrombus growth at sites of clot formation. Mature mouse GP-V is a 551 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein. In its 506 aa extracellular domain (aa 17-522), GP-V contains 16 LR repeats (aa 17-474), and terminates with a short 24 aa cytoplasmic tail. Based on human, mouse GP-V might be naturally cleaved by thrombin and ADAM17, generating soluble fragments that range from 70-82 kDa in size. Over aa 17-522, mouse GP-V shares 83% and 70% aa sequence identity with rat and human GP-V, respectively.
