Integrin alpha 2b/CD41 in Mouse Bone Marrow Cells. Integrin alpha 2b/CD41 was detected in immersion fixed mouse bone marrow cells using Rat Anti-Mouse Integrin alpha 2b/CD41 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB41181) at 25 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL014) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cell surfaces and cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Non-adherent Cells.

Background: Integrin alpha 2b/CD41
Integrin alpha 2b, (ITGA2b) also known as CD41 and GPIIb, is a transmembrane glycoprotein that is expressed by megakaryocytes and platelets. It is cleaved into two disulfide-linked chains (114 kDa and 22 kDa) during transit through the Golgi. ITGA2b associates with integrin beta 3 to form complexes that interact with fibrinogen, von Willebrand factor, fibronectin, and vitronectin. ITGA2b is required for platelet aggregation, and defects lead to disorders of coagulation. Within the extracellular domain, mouse ITGA2b shares 81% and 89% amino acid sequence identity with human and rat ITGA2b, respectively.
