Regulatory Status Legend
The 2A9-1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to human CX3CR1, which is also known as chemokine (C-C) receptor-like 1 (CCRL1), Beta chemokine receptor-like 1 (CMK-BRL-1), G protein-coupled receptor 13 (GPR13), or GPRV28 (V28). CX3CR1 is a seven transmembrane G protein coupled receptor that is expressed by NK cells, T cells, and monocytes. The cellular expression of CX3CR1 is correlated with high levels of intracellular perforin and granzyme B. CX3CR1 serves as a receptor for fractalkine (CX3CL1). Fractalkine is a transmembrane chemokine of the CX3C family that is expressed on activated endothelial cells, neurons, and astrocytes. Interaction of CX3CR1 with fractalkine initiates cellular adhesive and chemotactic responses.

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
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 with R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were 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).

- 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.
