Regulatory Status Legend
The MHN1-519 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to an extracellular domain of human Notch1. Notch1 is a type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein receptor and member of the Notch family that includes Notch1-Notch4. Notch1 is cleaved in the Golgi and presents as a cell surface heterodimeric receptor. The Notch1 receptor can bind to several membrane-bound ligands including Jagged1, Jagged2, Delta1 and Delta4. Upon ligand binding, Notch1 undergoes proteolytic cleavage that results in the release of the Notch intracellular domain, NICD. NICD translocates to the nucleus where it forms a transcriptional activator complex with various transcriptional factors. These multimeric complexes either positively or negatively regulate the expression of multiple genes including those that orchestrate many facets of embryonic development and the subsequent functioning of multiple organ systems such as the immune, cardiovascular and nervous systems. Within the immune system, Notch signaling significantly affects the development, proliferation, differentiation and survival of numerous cell types including thymocytes and subsets of T and B lymphocytes and dendritic cells. In altered forms, Notch1 has been associated with certain cardiovascular diseases and with some lymphocyte neoplasms.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BB515 which was developed exclusively by BD Biosciences. With an excitation max of 490 nm and an emission max of 515 nm, BD Horizon BB515 can be excited by the 488 nm laser and detected in a standard FITC set (eg, 530/30-nm filter). This dye provides a much brighter alternative to FITC with less spillover into the PE detector.
BB515 is a dye that was exclusively developed by BD Biosciences as a brighter alternative to FITC. This dye is up to seven times brighter than FITC and has less spillover into the PE channel. Due to similar excitation and emission properties, BB515, FITC, and Alexa Fluor® 488 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 with BD Horizon™ BB515 under optimum conditions and unconjugated antibody 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.
- 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 results, it is recommended to perform 2 washes after staining with antibodies. Cells may be prepared, stained with antibodies and washed twice with wash buffer per established protocols for immunofluorescence staining, prior to acquisition on a flow cytometer. Performing fewer than the recommended wash steps may lead to increased spread of the negative population.
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. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).
