Regulatory Status Legend
The 3D10 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse Lymphocyte antigen 49H (Ly-49H; also known as Klra8 or Killer cell lectin-like receptor 8). The 3D10 antibody does not crossreact with related molecules such as Ly-49A, C, D or G2. Ly-49H is a type II transmembrane protein and a member of the Ly-49 C-type lectin multigene family of receptors expressed by NK cells. Cell surface Ly-49H is expressed by a subset of NK cells but not by NKT cells. Ly-49H is expressed by C57BL/6 and NWNA but not by BALB/c or DBA/2 mouse NK cells. Cell surface Ly-49H presents as a ~110 kDa disfulfide-linked homodimer and associates with signaling subunits such as DAP10 and DAP12 for optimal transduction of intracellular activation signals. Crosslinking of Ly-49H with the 3D10 antibody reportedly induces NK cell cytotoxicity and cytokine production. Ly-49H recognizes the mouse cytomegalovirus m157 glycoprotein that is expressed by infected cells and is required for protection against cytomegalovirus infection.
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.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
