Regulatory Status Legend
The OX-34 antibody reacts with CD2 (LFA-2), a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. In the rat, CD2 is expressed on thymocytes, T lymphocytes in spleen and lymph node, dendritic epidermal T cells, splenic macrophages, and NK cells, but not on B cells, most intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes, or peritoneal and liver macrophages. CD2 can associate with the T-cell receptor complex, and it may function in both intercellular adhesion and signal transduction. In the rat, CD48 and CD59 have been identified as ligands for CD2. OX-34 mAb binds to the extracellular portion of CD2, and it blocks the binding of CD2 to CD48. While OX-34 antibody does not activate T cells, it partially blocks activation by immobilized mAbs to CD3 (clone G4.18) and αβ T-cell receptor (clone R73), and it partially inhibits allogeneic mixed lymphocyte reactions. Moreover, in vivo administration of OX-34 antibody depletes peripheral T cells and prevents allograft rejection.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BUV395 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This dye has been exclusively developed by BD Biosciences to have minimal spillover into other detectors, making it an optimal choice for multicolor flow cytometry. With an Ex Max at 348 nm and an Em Max at 395 nm, BD Horizon BUV395 can be excited with a 355 nm laser and detected with a 379/28 filter.
BUV395 is a UV-excitable dye that has been developed exclusively by BD Biosciences. With an excitation max of 348 nm and emission max of 395 nm, BUV395 can be excited by the 355-nm laser and detected in a 379/28 filter. This dye is optimal for multicolor flow cytometry because it has little to no spillover into other detectors.

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 BD Horizon BUV395 under optimal conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.
- This antibody was developed for use in flow cytometry.
- The production process underwent stringent testing and validation to assure that it generates a high-quality conjugate with consistent performance and specific binding activity. However, verification testing has not been performed on all conjugate lots.
- Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.
- 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.

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes (including BD OptiBuild Brilliant reagents) are used in the same experiment. Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation. The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions. More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794).
