Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Purified E B FC
GPIb-alpha (platelet glycoprotein Ib-alpha; also CD42b and glycocalicin) is a platelet-derived 145kD member of the leucine-rich glycoprotein family of molecules. Mature human GPIb-alpha is a type I transmembrane protein 610 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a 489 aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 17-505) and a 100 aa cytoplasmic region (aa 527-626). As part of a membrane complex, the GPIb-alpha ECD binds to von Willebrand Factor to impede platelet flow and promote clotting. The human GPIb-alpha ECD is approximately 50% aa identical to dog and mouse GPIb-alpha ECD.
