Glycophorin A - Mouse monoclonal GA-R2 (HIR2)BSB 5582-BSB 5588
Glycophorins A (GPA) and B (GPB) are single pass membrane sialoglycoproteins. GPA is the carrier of blood group M and N specificities, while GPB accounts for S and U specificities. GPA and GPB provide the cells with a large mucin-like surface and it has been suggested this provides a barrier to cell fusion, thus minimizing aggregation between red blood cells in the circulation. Anti-Glycophorin A has been used to characterize erythroid cell development and in the diagnosis of Erythroid Leukemias.
Available options include prediluted (3ml, 7 ml, 15ml), concentrate (0.1 ml, 0.5ml, 1ml) and 5+ control slides.
