Regulatory Status Legend
The TY25 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD273, also known as B7-DC or PD-L2. CD273 is a 42-kDa type I membrane glycoprotein encoded by the Pdcd1lg2 gene of the B7 family of the Ig superfamily. Pdcd1lg2 mRNA is expressed selectively in dendritic cells (DC), liver, and a few transformed cell lines (hepatic, neuroblastoma, and myeloid), but not in lymphoid tissues or macrophages. The protein has not been detected on resting peripheral T and B lymphocytes, macrophages, or DC, but it is upregulated upon activation of T cells, macrophages, and DC by a variety of stimulatory factors. B7-DC's receptor, PD-1, contains an ITIM (Immunoreceptor Tyrosine-based Inhibitory Motif) on its intracytoplasmic region and is expressed on activated B and T lymphocytes, suggesting that B7-DC-PD-1 interaction may be involved in the negative regulation of immune responses. The second PD-1 ligand, B7-H1 (PD-L1), is also a member of the B7 family of the Ig superfamily. B7-DC may also participate in positive immunoregulation, or costimulation of T cells, through an additional receptor, which is not PD-1 and distinct from the alternate receptor for B7-H1. Moreover, B7-DC is the first B7 ligand that has been found to participate in bi-directional communication; ligation of B7-DC on DC stimulates those DC. The TY25 antibody blocks the binding of B7-DC to PD-1, but not to its alternate ligand.
This antibody is routinely tested by flow cytometric analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

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
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.
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
- 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.
