Regulatory Status Legend
Allophycocyanin (APC), is an accessory photosynthetic pigment found in blue-green algae. Its molecular weight is approximately 105 kDa. APC has six phycocyanobilin chromophores per molecule, which makes it a very bright fluorochrome that is highly suitable for flow cytometry applications. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, APC and Alexa Fluor® 647 cannot be used simultaneously

Preparation and Storage
The polyclonal antibody was purified from antiserum by negative adsorption and affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated to APC under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free APC were removed.
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
The antibody solution was passed through solid-phase immunoadsorbent gels to minimize cross-reactivity with rat, human, bovine and horse serum proteins.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.

- 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.
As a second-step reagent for staining rat spleen and bone marrow leukocytes, it is reactive with mouse primary antibodies having the IgG1, IgG2a, IgG2b, IgG3, IgM, and IgA isotypes. Minimal background staining of rat leukocytes occurs in the absence of primary antibody. In addition, it stains mouse peripheral B lymphocytes with little non-specific staining of other splenic leukocytes. Therefore, it is useful as a primary reagent in immunofluorescent staining of mouse B cells and antibody-producing cells and as a secondary reagent for staining rat leukocytes with mouse Ig primary antibodies. However, we have observed that the reactivity of polyclonal second-step antibodies to mouse or rat IgM may be reduced after adsorption against Ig of rat or mouse, respectively. Because this anti-mouse Ig antibody was adsorbed with rat Ig, it may be weakly reactive with some mouse IgM primary antibodies. In those cases, we recommend biotinylated anti-mouse IgM mAb R6-60.2 (Cat. No. 553406) or anti-mouse Ig κ light chain mAb 187.1 (Cat. No. 559750), followed by Streptavidin-APC (Cat. No. 554067).
