Regulatory Status Legend
The 2PH1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the N-terminus of CD162 (P-selectin glycoprotein ligand-1, PSGL-1), encoded by the Selplg gene. PSGL-1 is expressed on the cell surface as a homodimer of approximately 230 kDa. In the mouse, Selpl mRNA is detected in most tissues, with high levels found in hematopoietic cells, brain, and adipose tissue. Flow cytometric analyses have revealed CD162 expression on bone marrow-derived mast and dendritic cells, splenic leukocytes, platelets, peripheral blood neutrophils, and neutrophil and T-cell lines. PSGL-1 is a ligand for P-selectin (CD62P) and is involved in leukocyte rolling, the migration of leukocytes into inflamed tissues, and responses to vascular injury. It is a sialomucin that must be specifically sialylated, fucosylated, and sulfated to bind P-selectin. There is also evidence that other ligands for PSGL-1 and CD62P may exist. The 2PH1 antibody is reported to block binding of mouse leukocytes to CD62P, but the 4RA10 antibody (Cat. No. 557787) has significantly greater blocking activity.
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.
