BB515 Mouse Anti-Integrin α7 (ITGA7)
Flow cytometric analysis of Integrin α7 (ITGA7) expression on Mouse C2C12 cells or Human U-2 OS cells.  Cells from the Mouse C2C12 (Myoblast, ATCC® CRL-1772™) cell line (Left Histograms) or cells from the Human U-2 OS (Osteosarcoma, ATCC® HTB-96™) cell line (Right Histograms) were stained with either BD Horizon™ BB515 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 564416; dashed line histograms) or BD Horizon™ BB515 Mouse Anti-Integrin α7 (ITGA7) antibody (Cat. No. 569837/569913; solid line histograms) at 1 μg/test. DAPI (4',6-Diamidino-2-Phenylindole, Dihydrochloride) Solution (Cat. No. 564907) was added to cells right before analysis. The fluorescence histogram showing Integrin α7 (ITGA7) expression (or Ig Isotype control staining) was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable (DAPI-negative) cells. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ X-20 Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software. Data shown on this Technical Data Sheet are not lot specific.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated to the dye under optimum conditions and unconjugated antibody and free dye were removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

Recommended Assay Procedures

   BD® CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (compensation).  When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to BD® CompBeads, they have spectral properties very similar to cells.   However, for some fluorochromes there can be small differences in spectral emissions compared to cells, resulting in spillover values that differ when compared to biological controls.  It is strongly recommended that when using a reagent for the first time, users compare the spillover on cells and BD® CompBeads to ensure that BD® CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

   For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer should be used anytime BD Horizon Brilliant™ dyes are used in a multicolor flow cytometry panel.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions. When BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer is used in in the multicolor panel, it should also be used in the corresponding compensation controls for all dyes to achieve the most accurate compensation. For the most accurate compensation, compensation controls created with either cells or beads should be exposed to BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer for the same length of time as the corresponding multicolor panel. 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).

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.

3C12

The 3C12 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes Integrin alpha 7 (Integrin α7 or α7 Integrin). Integrins mediate important intercellular and cell-extracellular matrix interactions in a variety of biological processes. Integrin α7 is a single-pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by ITGA7 (Integrin subunit alpha 7) which belongs to the Integrin alpha chain family. Integrin α7 is mainly expressed by skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle cells. It associates with Integrin β1 to form a heterodimeric Integrin α7β1 complex. This heterodimer functions as the major laminin-binding receptor. Integrin α7β1 mediates cellular binding to components of the extracellular matrix including laminin-1 as well as the laminin isoforms-2 and -4. Integrin α7β1 participates in the adhesion and motility of myoblasts during myogenesis and helps guide muscle fiber formation and maintenance.

BB515
The BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue 515 (BB515) dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue family of dyes. This dye is a polymer fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 490-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) of 515-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BB515 is designed to be excited by the blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520-nm (e.g., 530/30-nm). BB515 reagents are significantly brighter than equivalent FITC or Alexa Fluor™ 488 reagents with less spillover into the PE detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
