This product recognizes mouse CD36, an 85kD transmembrane glycoprotein which is primarily expressed on platelets, monocytes/macrophages, smooth muscle and endothelial cells. The CD36 molecule is type B scavenger receptor, which binds to multiple ligands including thrombospondin, anionic phospholipids, oxidized low density lipoproteins and long chain fatty acids.
CD36 has diverse functions and is reported to play a role in innate immunity, platelet adhesion/aggregation and long chain fatty acid transport. The CD36 molecule also directly mediates cytoadhesion of erythrocytes infected with Plasmodium falciparum, and may be involved in the development of atherosclerotic lesions and the formation of foam cells.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 18 months after receipt.
