Regulatory Status Legend
The 94801 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to HVEM (Herpes virus entry mediator). HVEM is also known as CD270 and LIGHT Receptor (LIGHT-R). CD270 is a type I transmembrane protein and member of the TNF Receptor superfamily. It is encoded by TNFRSF14 (tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily member 14). CD270 is expressed on resting T cells, B cells, monocytes, and some dendritic cells. CD270 binds to homotrimeric Lymphotoxin α (LTa3/TNFβ), LIGHT (is homologous to lymphotoxins, exhibits inducible expression, and competes with HSV glycoprotein D for HVEM, a receptor expressed by T lymphocytes), CD272/BTLA, and glycoprotein D of Herpes simplex viruses HSV-1 and HSV-2. CD270-LIGHT interactions can reportedly transduce costimulatory signals for T cells.
Alexa Fluor® 647 conjugates are highly photostable and remain fluorescent over a broad pH range. The excitation and emission maxima are nearly identical to those of APC. However, APC tends to be brighter while Alexa Fluor® 647 is more optimal for intracellular applications. This fluorochrome exhibits uncommon photostability, making it an ideal choice for use in fluorescence microscopy. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, APC and Alexa Fluor® 647 cannot be used simultaneously.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.
- This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).

- Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- 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.
