BV421 Mouse Anti-Rat CD90/Mouse CD90.1
BV421 Mouse Anti-Rat CD90/Mouse CD90.1

Two-color flow cytometric analysis of CD90 expression on rat splenocytes. Lewis rat splenic leucocytes were stained with BD Horizon™ BV421 Mouse Anti-Rat CD90 (Cat. No. 563770) and FITC Rat Anti-Mouse CD3 (Cat. No. 554832/559975) antibodies. A two-color flow cytometric dot plot showing the correlated expression of CD90 versus CD3 was derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable leucocytes. Flow cytometric analysis was performed using a BD™ LSR II Flow Cytometry System.

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 BV421 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BV421 were removed.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. 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.
  5. Species cross-reactivity detected in product development may not have been confirmed on every format and/or application.

OX-7

CD90 (Thy-1) is a GPI-anchored membrane glycoprotein of the Ig superfamily which is involved in signal transduction.  The OX-7 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to rat CD90 reported to be expressed by hematopoietic stem cells, early myeloid and erythroid cells, immature B lymphocytes in the bone marrow and peripheral lymphoid organs, thymocytes, recent thymic emigrants (a subset of CD45RC- peripheral T lymphocytes), neurons, glomerular mesangial cells, endothelium at inflammatory sites, mast cells, and dendritic cells. Rat dendritic epidermal T cells (DEC) have been reported to be CD90 (Thy-1) negative, unlike those of the mouse.

The OX-7 clone has been reported to crossreact with the mouse CD90.1 (Thy-1.1) alloantigen of the AKR/J and PL strains, but not CD90.2 (Thy-1.2) found on many mouse strains. In the mouse, CD90 is found on thymocytes, most peripheral T lymphocytes, some intraepithelial T lymphocytes (IEL, DEC), hematopoietic stem cells, and neurons, but not B lymphocytes. In addition, there is evidence that CD90 mediates adhesion of mouse thymocytes to mouse thymic stroma. The OX-7 clone has also been reported to crossreact with rabbit and guinea pig thymus, brain, and intestine.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon™ Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes.  With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon™ BV421  can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon™ BV421  conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue™ conjugates.

BV421
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 421 (BV421) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology based dye has an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 423-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BV421 is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 420-nm (e.g., a 431/28-nm or 450/50-nm bandpass filter). BV421 is an ideal alternative for V450 as it is approximately ten times brighter with less spillover into the BV510/V500 detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
