Regulatory Status Legend
The LG.3A10 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD27, a lymphocyte-restricted member of the Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor family which binds to CD70. The CD27 molecule is a 45-kDa transmembrane glycoprotein which is constitutively expressed by lymphocytes of the T lineage: virtually all thymocytes and over 90% of peripheral T cells bearing both αβ and γδ T-cell receptors. CD27 cooperates with the pre-TCR in mediating thymocyte differentiation and expansion. In addition, one to ten percent of mature peripheral B cells express CD27, and CD27's role in the differentiation of human plasma cells has been studied. Mouse NK cells, freshly isolated and IL-2-activated, also express CD27. In the bone marrow, CD27 is found on a progenitor population which provides short-term hematopoietic reconstitution. Cells of the myeloid lineage do not express CD27. Cross-linked LG.3A10 mAb has been reported to amplify the proliferative response of purified T lymphocytes to suboptimal mitogenic stimulation1 and to enhance NK-cell proliferation and IFN-γ production. In contrast, non-cross-linked LG.3A10 mAb inhibits CD3-induced pre-T cell development by interfering with the receptor-ligand interaction. This hamster mAb to a mouse leukocyte antigen has been observed to cross-react with a similar population of rat leukocytes.

R-phycoerythrin (PE) is an accessory photosynthetic pigment found in red algae. It exists in vitro as a 240-kDa protein with 23 phycoerythrobilin chromophores per molecule. This makes PE one of the brightest fluorochromes for flow cytometry applications, but its photobleaching properties make it unsuitable for fluorescence microscopy.

Preparation and Storage
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated with R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed.
Store undiluted at 4°C.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/pharmingen/protocols for technical protocols.
- Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
