The spectroscopic parameters and decay channels of the axial-vector tetraquark 213 built of heavy diquark bb and light antidiquark us are explored using QCD sum rule method. Because this state is stable against strong and electromagnetic decays, we consider its semileptonic and nonleptonic decay modes. Partial widths of weak processes TAVb:s¯ → Z0b:s¯ lv¯l and Tb:s¯AV → Z0b:s¯ M are calculated using weak form factors Gi(q2) computed by QCD three-point sum rules: Z0b:s¯ is the scalar tetraquark with quark content bcus¯ and M is a vector meson. The full width and mean lifetime of the tetraquark TAVb:s¯ obtained in this work shed light on features of double-beauty tetraquarks and are useful for their experimental investigations.
