Antibodies for Mouse Platelet Depletion
정맥 내 투여 후 60 분 이내에 혈소판이 95 % 이상 감소됩니다.
This antibody preparation contains a mixture of purified rat monoclonal antibodies directed against mouse
GPIb (CD42b). Targeting of this receptor with divalent IgGs results in profound and irreversible Fc-
independent platelet depletion in mice1,2. Platelet depletion is frequently used to study the general role of
platelets in (patho-) physiology3.
Depletion of mouse platelets by anti-GPIb treatment Wild type mice received 2 or 4 μg/g platelet depletion
antibodies in 200 μl sterile PBS intravenously and platelet counts were determined at the indicated time
points. Results are mean s.d. of 6 mice per group.
