The S35-934 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to TNF-related apoptosis inducing ligand receptor 1 (TRAIL-R1/TRAIL Receptor 1). TRAIL-R1 is also known as CD261, Death Receptor 4 (DR4) and APO2. TRAIL-R1 is a type I transmembrane protein that is encoded by TNFRSF10A (tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily, member 10a). It serves as a receptor for TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) which is also known as CD253 and TNFSF10. TRAIL-R1 is expressed by a variety of tumor-derived cell lines. It is generally expressed at very low levels by most leucocytes. When bound by TRAIL, TRAIL-R1 can promote recruitment and subsequent activation of caspase-8, ultimately triggering the activation of effector caspases within cells that lead to apoptosis. Many transformed cell types are susceptible to TRAIL:TRAIL-R1-mediated cell death whereas normal cells are typically resistant.
This antibody is conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV605 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max of 602-nm, BD Horizon BV605 can be excited by a violet laser and detected with a standard 610/20-nm filter set. BD Horizon BV605 is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 and an acceptor dye with an Em max at 605-nm. Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by the green (532 nm) and yellow-green (561 nm) lasers, there will be significant spillover into the PE and BD Horizon PE-CF594 detectors off the green or yellow-green lasers. BD Horizon BV605 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting brightness equivalent to PE conjugates and can be used as a third color off of the violet laser.
