Regulatory Status Legend
The M3/84 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD107b which is also known as Mac-3, Lysosome-associated membrane protein 2 (LAMP-2/Lamp2/Lamp II), and Lysosomal membrane glycoprotein type B (LGP-B). CD107b is a single-pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein that constitutes a major integral membrane protein of lysosomes and may play a role in lysosomal function. CD107b is also expressed on the surface of mouse mononuclear phagocytes. Surface expression of the 92-110-kDa glycoprotein antigen increases during differentiation of monocytes to activated macrophages and may play a role in adhesion. The M3/84 mAb can detect CD107b antigen on tissue macrophages, thioglycollate-elicited peritoneal macrophages, and some myeloid cell lines, but not on lymphocytes or monocytes. In the bone marrow, very few cells display CD107b antigen on the surface, but a large proportion express cytoplasmic CD107b. The M3/84 antibody has also been reported to stain dendritic cells and endothelium in sections of thymus (both medulla and cortex), lymph nodes, spleen (white pulp), and gut-associated lymphoid tissue.
PerCP-Cy™5.5 is a tandem conjugate that combines PerCP with a cyanine dye. PerCP-Cy5.5 is not subject to photobeaching like PerCP and can be used with stream-in-air flow cytometers. It has less Fc receptor–mediated nonspecific staining than PE-Cy5. Additionally, the PerCP-Cy5.5 tandem conjugate is not as susceptible to fixative or light instability compared to APC-Cy7 and PE-Cy7.

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 PerCP-Cy5.5 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PerCP-Cy5.5 were removed. Storage of PerCP-Cy5.5 conjugates in unoptimized diluent is not recommended and may result in loss of signal intensity.
- 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.
- Please observe the following precautions: Absorption of visible light can significantly alter the energy transfer occurring in any tandem fluorochrome conjugate; therefore, we recommend that special precautions be taken (such as wrapping vials, tubes, or racks in aluminum foil) to prevent exposure of conjugated reagents, including cells stained with those reagents, to room illumination.
- PerCP-Cy5.5–labelled antibodies can be used with FITC- and R-PE–labelled reagents in single-laser flow cytometers with no significant spectral overlap of PerCP-Cy5.5, FITC, and R-PE fluorescence.
- PerCP-Cy5.5 is optimized for use with a single argon ion laser emitting 488-nm light. Because of the broad absorption spectrum of the tandem fluorochrome, extra care must be taken when using dual-laser cytometers, which may directly excite both PerCP and Cy5.5™. We recommend the use of cross-beam compensation during data acquisition or software compensation during data analysis.
